The BMW i8 is an unusual car. No matter the angle you look at it, it’s a good looking, yet uncommon coupe. And now, it gets a new set of wheels, as sexy and weirdly appealing as the car itself.
They match the futuristic aspect of the i8, through their form and color combination. Just like the coupe’s sleek silhouette, the thin spokes of the rims add dynamics to the visual aspect. The impact of this wheels – machine combination on the eye is powerful.
They completely change the looks of the i8, though the German hybrid coupe never lacked the style. On the contrary: it has been one of the most beautiful sports car on the market ever since its launch, in 2014. Its hybrid powertrain, instead of taking away its shine, increased its charm, because its philosophy has’t been based on fuel economy, being performance-oriented instead.
This thing is obvious, looking at its numbers: 0-100 km/h in 4.4 seconds and 250 km/h. It’s true, the average fuel consumption is only 2.1 l/100 km, but this wasn’t the main goal for the engineers. Even more interesting is the neutral dynamic behavior, thanks to its central mounted 1.5 liter, 3 cylinder turbo engine, and its all wheel drive system.
For sending in the most efficient way the power to the asphalt, the wheels must be stable, sturdy and light. The forged rims are, therefore, the supreme solution. And the set of Savini SV62 is the perfect treatment for the beast. Especially when its body is painted in the same color scheme, the windows are black-tinted and the smoked headlights complete the image.
