Lightbulb BMW i8 Production renders based on latest spyshots

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Jul 29 2013 Update
Now we know how BMW i headlights are going to look like I have made an update to these renderings, in BMW i3 color schemes. I will update the first post with this as well.

Solar Orange with Matte Grey Trim


Andesite Silver with BMW i Blue Trim


Arravani Grey with BMW i Blue Trim


Laurel Grey with BMW i Blue Trim


Iconic Silver with BMW i Blue Trim


Capparis White with BMW i Blue Trim


Here are a few overlay renders of the production BMW i8 based off the latest spyshots sporting production wheels, posted here on Bimmerpost.

I too am anticipating a render by Wildspeed soon because no doubt it would be amazing. Here is a render fix for those who is wondering what the production car could look like I missed some of the car's hood shut lines oops, I have now updated it.


See the large image

By request here are a few other color combos... not sure if these trim+paint combos will make production, imagination is limitless.









This is how the headlights could look like based on from what I can see in the current Spyshots... I know it's signaling right but is turning left.

Nice job! Only thing to change is maybe the headlights, which won't look like the concept ones, based on the latest spy pics.

I second the motion. The Black with blue highlights pops nicely. Great job all the same!

Agree 100%. If this is BMWs design language for a hot sports car, they're not speaking to me at all.

The Fisker Karma, any Aston, Jaguar XKR, Ferrari F12, hell, even the new 'Vette (with a few less vents) and the new Viper - those are all beautiful sports cars. This looks like something you'd see in a cheesy B movie set in the future.

What happened to the design team that produced the Z8??

I'm hoping this is just the approach for their electric vehicles and we don't see this anywhere else.

The design language used in the i3 and i8 is derivative of BMW designs but it is actually designed with it's own cues because BMW is marketing this as a separate "BMW i" brand apart from the rest of the line up...

The BMW i Design language conveys efficiency and performance... rather then being Ultimate Driving Machine like BMW traditionally known for.

I have never driven an i3 or i8 before... but I am looking forward to if they send me there to drive it, but no doubt it will handle and feel like a BMW should, even though it is styled and marketed as a "BMW i" product.
