THE ULTIMATE PRESENCE.

The BMW i8 Roadster reveals itself as futuristic right down to the last detail. Its progressive lines speak a formal language that can hardly be more dynamic. The most striking feature: the imposing lightweight carbon-fibre hinged doors, which can be opened comfortably. The athletic front continues to display the individual character of the car and proudly bears the BMW double kidney, flanked by full-LED headlights and redesigned Air Curtains. Starting at the bonnet, the distinctive V-shaped black belt stretches along the entire car, underscoring its flat silhouette. The impressive streamflow design also optimizes airflow and creates unprecedented aerodynamics. Thus, the BMW i8 Roadster is a perfect symbiosis of form and function that knows only one destination: ultimate freedom.

"This is what we call pure open e-mobility. With this open-top two-seater we are going for the pole position in the open hybrid sports cars segment.“

FREE. SPACE.

The interior of the BMW i8 Roadster also underscores its unique character. This is immediately apparent from the exclusive two-tone interior Amido/E-Copper Leather with Cloth Accents. The interior also reflects the dynamic lines of the exterior design, creating a futuristic dynamic throughout the cockpit. The centre cockpit is inclined to the driver and the controls are arranged intuitively – ensuring maximum driver orientation and clarity. Optimum lateral support and maximum comfort are provided by the new electrically-adjustable sport seats with memory function. Behind the seats is additional storage space. With the optional Travel Package, retractable dividers and an extra Nappa Leather map pocket are available. In the dark, the LED interior lighting ensures a high-quality ambience.

REVOLUTIONARY SPEEDSTER.

The BMW i8 Roadster takes even the headwind’s breath away. This is not only due to its athletic appearance, but also its streamlined body, the extreme lightweight construction and the layered design of the LED tail lights, which the wind flows through.

Both components are weight-optimized down to the last gram in order to take thought-out sustainability with perfected sportiness efficiently to the road.

FULL SAFETY AHEAD.

FULL SAFETY AHEAD.

Wherever you go – the BMW i8 Roadster is prepared for anything thanks to numerous assistance systems. For example, during wet driving, the brakes are cleaned from time to time by the dry brake function to minimize moisture – and all without noticeable brake pressure. In bad weather conditions, Dynamic Traction Control (DTC) makes starting easier by reducing wheel spin and ensuring maximum traction. Once driving, the BMW xDrive all-wheel drive system takes over to provide excellent grip in any situation. The system is activated in hybrid mode and distributes the drive forces of both types of drive variably and according to the situation to all four wheels.
