BMW i8 in Lava Green Gets Proper Display at Abu Dhabi Dealership

It has been a while since we last heard about BMW`s exquisite Abu Dhabi dealership and its plethora of uniquely customized models.

However, a one-off and hot-looking BMW i8 has been brought to the dealership for a proper display, this fine specimen here wearing an exclusive exterior color, the Lava Green, a rare sight amongst BMW models.

But the best part is far from being over, cause the plug-in hybrid displayed here is wearing the signature of AC Schnitzer, a custom tuner that is crazy about BMW products.

The AC Schnitzer carbon fiber aero kit comes with a lot of standout parts, like the extended front spoiler, rear spoiler, side sills and so on, all complemented with the bespoke wheels, finished in Brushed Metall and providing the model with a solemn attitude and stance.

In the engine department, the BMW i8 still packs the synchronous 1.5-liter engine paired to an electric motor and a 7.1 kWh lithium ion-battery. The overall power stands at an impressive 362 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque. The model comes with an electric range of 30 km achieved at a top speed of 120 km/h, with a maximum total range of 440 km.

The hybrid drivetrain allows a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds, while the sprint from 80 to 120 km/h is done in 4.0 seconds. The topping stands at 250 km/h.
