The independent digital artist Jon Sibal has creat a virtual project for a racing car based on the BMW i8.

The i8 GT3 features a wide body kit with heavily modified front bumper with integrated carbon fiber lip. On the side profile we noticed new side sills, while at the back there’s a new massive wing.

The production i8 features a plug-in hybrid system that includes a 1.5-liter 3-cylinder gasoline engine and an electric motor. The TwinPower Turbo unit generates 231 HP (170 kW) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft), while the electric motor adds 131 HP (96 kW), which are transferred to the front wheels via a two-stage automatic gearbox. The combined output stands at 362 HP (266 kW) and 570 Nm (420 lb-ft) of torque.

The officially announced 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint time is 4.4 seconds and the average fuel consumption is rated at 2.5 liters / 100 km (94 mpg US or 113 mpg UK).
