A series of spy photos and a video with the upcoming BMW i8, have recently surfaced online, as slightly modified version of the BMW Vision EfficientDynamic Concept, which debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show last year has been spotted in Dubai by a member of the Teamspeed forum.
The BMW i8 moniker has not been officially confirmed yet, and according to previous speculations the company’s hybrid supercar which will go on sale in 2013 could also be named the i1 or i100 due to the fact that the Bavarian automaker has trademarked various names and logos containing the letter ‘i’.
Powered by a 1.5-litre 3-cylinder turbodiesel engine plus two electric motors, the BMW i8 is expected to deliver 356 HP and 800 Nm of torque, figures that are enough to make it sprint from 0 to 100 Km/h (0 to 62 mph) in 4.8 seconds and reach a maximum speed of 250 Km/h (155 mph).
In terms of efficiency the BMW i8 is also impressive as it requires 3.76 litres of fuel per 100 Km.
