    Vorsteiner previews what a modified BMW i8 Spyder will look like - i8 Spyder rendering lowered on 21 inch Vorsteiner wheels

    BimmerBoost often mocks the BMW i8 because it lacks the balls a $100k+ sports car should have but there are no knocks on its styling. The design of the i8 Spyder is gorgeous. BMW is having trouble getting the i8 Spyder to market and has a number of issues to resolve before the car hits the streets but the rendering below gives us an idea of what the i8 Spyder will look like with some relatively basic cosmetic modifications.

    The stock car rides on 20 inch rims. What you see rendered below is the i8 Spyder rendered on 21 inch Vorsteiner forged rims. The car is also dropped giving it an aggressive stance. That is all one really needs to do to make the i8 look incredible as the bodywork and design are already aggressive off the showroom floor.

    The color scheme is also changed to a white, black, and yellow pattern. Whether owners will actually change the color schemes of their i8 remains to be seen but the end result here is one hot looking drop top. Now if only what was under the hood was as aggressive as the styling...

    Ditch the hybrid system and just give it an S65. That would be enough to make me happy.

    Good lord that is gorgeous! Paint scheme and all!

    EDIT: Yeah, if I had the money I'd be buying a spyder or coupe i8, and putting an S85 in, supercharged probably. Damn to have those looks, and then add the sounds of a catless S85...gives me chills just thinking about it
    2009 335i coupe back to stock...for now
