While we eagerly await the first official pictures of the production ready BMW i8, we can show a few nicely completely renderings that speculate the design. There is no denying the appeal of the images, however, the official design will likely be toned down by the manufacturer.

According to our previous reports, the BMW i8 will make use of a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine unit and an electric motor. The combined maximum power output will be 393 hp ( 293 kW / 399 PS ) and 550 Nm (406 lb-ft) of torque which will be passed to the wheels via a specially designed four-speed transmission system.

European customers should expect to part with at least €100,000 to purchase the plug-in hybrid sports car with BMW planning to shift 10,000 units per year.
