BMW Italia, together with Alcantara S.p.A, built a special roadster

Designed to radiate exclusivity and sustainability, the only BMW i8 Roadster model in the LimeLight Edition variant has a 2-color body with black wheels. In addition, it has a high-performance brake system with yellow calipers and a soft folding roof, which can be lowered in 15 seconds at speeds up to 50 km / h.

Considering that the car was created together with Alcantara, it is not surprising that the material of the same name covers almost the entire interior. Among the highlights are the 2-color Alcantara sports seats with a contrasting yellow stitching line, as well as yellow liners with a pattern inspired by the BMW logo.

 The pattern is repeated on the door panels, and the dashboard, center console and steering wheel are finished in Alcantara. In addition, the interior used carbon fiber, blue backlighting and the LimeLight Edition badge. According to BMW, the Alcantara is perfect for the i8.

  This model received a hybrid power unit, which includes a 1.5-liter turbocharged 3-cylinder gasoline engine, a 11.6 kWh lithium-ion battery and an electric motor. The total performance of the four-wheel drive machine is 369 hp. Such indicators give the car the opportunity to accelerate to 100 km / h in 4.6 seconds and accelerate as much as possible to 250 km / h. A car powered by electric traction alone can cover a distance of up to 53 km in the NEDC cycle.
