Okay, I am a bit tired of the “i” everything names, but I have to admit, this car is amazing….
like its predecessor, the ‘i8 spyder’ features edrive, a plug-in hybrid drivetrain composed of a turbocharged three-cylinder gasoline engine
for the rear wheels and electric motor for the front, capable of also working in tandem for all-wheel drive. the lithium-ion battery is stored
beneath the car’s body. BMW’s ‘lifedrive‘ architecture dictated the engineering design of the ‘spyder’, whose chassis is composed of lightweight,
carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic, while the modules connected most operational components are manufactured primarily of aluminum.
the ‘spyder’ is slightly shorter than the ‘i8’ coupe, featuring upward-swinging windowless doors. a transparent glass panel at its rear opens up
to two electric kickboard scooters. spoiler lips, aircurtains, and aeroflaps increase the aerodynamic efficiency of the vehicle. a two-piece folding
roof is expected for the future production model.
