Former BMW DesignWorks designer speculates on the production BMW i8

BMW DesignWorks former senior designer Sonny Lim has created a set of interesting renders that could preview the upcoming i8 production model, based on the recent spy shots and the i8 Spyder Concept.

The images created by designer Sonny Lim and published on his page on Behance showcase a possible production version of the i8 hybrid sportscar, with a more realistic bodywork, without the LED strips and with less intricate lines.

    sad it doesn’t look exactly like the concept i8… That would be something. Still cool though, for being a BMW…

    Wasn’t the i8 originally going to have four seats? This rendering doesn’t look like it.
