A fine BMW i8 specimen customized by AC Schnitzer tuner has recently popped-up at the carmaker’s dealership in Abu Dhabi, the plug-in hybrid looking smashing with the design bits added by the aftermarket shop.
Sure, it isn’t what we have really expected from a tuner, the i8 being seen in some extravagant and insane body kits, but as decent as it looks here, it’s just the right ingredient for a proper display.
A trained eye might depict the front spoiler add-ons, fixed rear wing and updated side skirts. To highlight the slight mods, the tuner has also fitted the model with 21-inch five twin-spoke design alloy wheels, which make it a bit more aggressive.
In the engine department, this gorgeous BMW i8 by AC Schnitzer still keeps the same 1.5-liter conventional engine hooked to an electric motor. The overall output stands at 362 horsepower while the performance figure speaks for itself: just 4.4 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h, which is 0.1 seconds slower than the M3 or M4. The fuel consumption is more than decent, with just 2.1 liters per each 100 km/h.
A couple of weeks ago we paid our tribute to BMW Abu Dhabi as being the company’s largest and most important BMW dealership in the world, with an available space of more than 35,000 square meters and over 70 BMWs to be displayed on the main floor.
Also, BMW Abu Dhabi houses more than 120 BMW vehicles in the service area, and adds the private cinema with hundreds of presentations about its unique BMW rides. Enjoy the exquisite photo gallery with BMW i8 by AC Schnitzer!
