2015-BMWi8 Spyder Car shows that how matter high-technology, carbon fiber clad and battery laden the car, but there still some conventional rules still apply and can not be ignored. In this case, even the mighty Bavarian Automaker was unable to escape from the Aristotelian maxim, “Where there is a coupe, soon follows a convertible.” (We may be a bit rusty on our Greek history.) And so we have this i8 Concept Spyder, which essentially is an i8 coupe without a fixed roof. Critically, though, the i8 Spyder looks more like a production vehicle than did the coupe concept, and so it tells us about a generalized idea about how this car would be looking like.
What’s Been Changed
The fundamental construction of both roofed and roofless i8s is the same: a carbon-fiber passenger cell called the life module which consists of electric motor for propulsion, lithium-ion battery pack for energy storage, and three-cylinder gasoline range-extender. There are, however, many different things between the i8 coupe and Spyder.
