ICON OF A NEW ERA.The first ever BMW i8 Roadster.

The future is taking shape – in the form of the first ever BMW i8 Roadster. Enthusiastic, fascinating and ready to reinterpret freedom. For unconditional driving pleasure, as far as the road goes. From the first glimpse of the iconic design adrenaline levels rise. The tachometer shoots up just as fast: the innovative plug-in hybrid engine generates 275 kW and 570 Nm and accelerates the BMW i8 Roadster from 0 to 100 km/ h in just 4.6 seconds. The fastest route to experience a new form of freedom.

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 optimises 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.“


The interior of the BMW i8 Roadster also underscores its unique character. This is immediately apparent from the exclusive feature line Accaro Amido/E-Copper. 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. The contour lines of the doors, the instrument panel, the centre console and the steering wheel can be optionally and alternately dipped in the colours EfficientDynamics Blue, Amber Yellow and White.
