Manhart Racing previews their i8 coupe tuning program with lowered i8 on 21 inch rims and different color trim
The i8 may not be the most powerful $135,000+ sports car out there
but it may be the best looking. German tuner Manhart-Racing intends to get their hands on the i8 and the first modifications will of course be cosmetic. Here's a little preview of a BMW i8 lowered on 21 inch forged Manhart rims along with yellow trim (Manhart seems to have gotten their inspiration from Vorsteiner
). The brake calipers are also rendered in yellow in order to match the sideskirts, kidney grilles, and mirrors.
Ok, the car looks great. We all understand that part. The question is, what tuner is actually going to tackle what is under the hood? Everyone will have plenty of rim and lowering options available for the car. Who is actually going to give this thing the balls a car approaching $150k should have? How about some more power out of that 1.5 liter turbo 3-cylinder and some more juice to the electric motor?
