BMW i8 Spyder Concept

              Few cars will host in this month of April 2012, but the look of BMW i8 Spyder is very attractive and coming expected next year.

            BMW has third car from its i8 series of electric-gas hybrids:- The i8 Spyder with high performance but also an incredible design, this model is breathtaking to see in the sequel. After the cut, BMW now accepts the concept i8 the form of a convertible whose design recalls the windows fire the Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster. I8 The Spyder version differs only by its closed roof that is obviously lacking here.The BMW i8 Spyder hybrid sports version.     
The fact that it looks fully road-ready probably means BMW will soon show it in the flesh to the general public, perhaps even at the upcoming New York Auto Show. BMW has just made us dream with the first images of its new concept car.

      BMW now presents the i8 Spyder and the open version with double doors is probably the funkiest and most desirable concept car at the time. The design of the car is still as otherworldly as the first two i8 concepts, with plenty of black and electric blue details, upward-swivelling doors and a semi-transparent “V” on the front end, which enables passers-by to take a look at the electric engine.The most important design feature is the flat body of the roadster, which seems to consist of several layers. The footage is of excellent quality, and the car (unsurprisingly) looks and sounds amazing. The interior features an 8.8-inch (22.4 cm) screen display, which, claims BMW, shows “all the relevant driving information in three-dimensional, high-resolution quality.”Compared to the first study, the length is slightly shrunk to 4.48 meters, was dispensed onto the rear seat. In their place are now two e-scooter space. The previously exported from glass doors are now made of carbon and thus act in series closer. In bad weather a two-piece hardtop for protection. About 30kilometers to the i8 can drive on electric power. The engine on the front axle delivers 131 hp and is powered by a mounted in the vehicle center lithium-ion battery. Is it empty, it must not be immediately to the outlet. Instead, a turbocharged three-cylinder turbo gasoline engine as a generator to supply. BMW i8 Spyder is an electric-gas hybrid, powered by a 96 kW/131 hp engine on the front, and a 164 kW/223 hp gasoline engine in the back. This is an electric motor under the hood results in front of the seats and in turn the front wheels with a power of 354 horsepower that accelerates the i8 in five seconds from zero to 100 km / h.30 km of the i8 can drive purely electrically, before the gasoline engine is smashed, the same time charging the battery again. Top speed is electronically limited at 250 km / h. Sports cars usually smell of rubber and gasoline, they are noisy and unrestrained brute. The BMW i8 Spyder is because different: Its developers praise him as a quiet, economical, environmentally sound, check the facts.

         Hopes that the study of an electric roadster BMW the voltage on the production version of the current athlete i8 increase which is scheduled for 2014, does not deviate too much from the design concept.

Fuel consumption of 3 liters per 100 kilometers :

     While the e-sports output in terms of the performance can be measured with the conventionally powered competitors, it will set new standards of consumption. The manufacturer specifies a standard value of three liters per 100 kilometers. Here also the approximately 30 kilometers are considered pure electric incurred only once during each trip. On the second hundred miles, consumption must be correspondingly higher. This minimized the thirst fails, set the i8 to light. The cabin is made of carbon, the bulk of the suspension components made of aluminum. A light weight is not the roadster with a curb weight of 1630 kg anyway.
