Our spies have taken several photos with the production version of the BMW i8 plug-in hybrid supercar.

BMW will reveal the i8 in production guise sometime this year, along with the smaller and more affordable i3 model. The i8 is set to receive a 2+2 seating layout and will need about 4.8 seconds to perform the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run.

While the concept featured a diesel engine, the production variant is set to receive a three-cylinder turbo gasoline engine which will work together with the hybrid setup. As a reminder, the electric motor of the concept generated 170 hp (125 kW).

The BMW i8 is expected to cost somewhere around 150,000 EUR (about 200,775 USD or 127,833 GBP).
