BMW i8 - Vossen Forged LC-105T wheels

The BMW i8 is a revolutionary plug-in hybrid, coming from the Bavarian car maker. This sports car uses eDrive technology to combine the efficiency of an all-electric motor and the power of a TwinPower Turbo engine for an exhilarating driving experience that’s every bit BMW. And now it comes with a small twist. But, first let’s see what kind of a powertrain/performance does this hybrid vehicle come with, shall we?

The BMW i8 uses an efficient TwinPower Turbo 3-cylinder combustion engine and its innovative electric motor. Together, these two work in tandem for uninterrupted acceleration from a standstill – only 4.2 seconds for the 0-62mph (0-100km/h) run – with a total system output of 420 lb-ft of torque and 357 horsepower.

Top speed is electronically limited to 155mph (250km/h). The BMW i8 gets up to 76 MPGe fuel efficiency, a mark far beyond conventional sports cars with comparable performance. All of this exemplary statistics mean that the i8 is a highly coveted vehicle, whereas there are many of them running around the streets of the world now.

Consequently, this pushes some owners to turn to the aftermarket tuning industry for some customization and tuning.

The owner of this Crystal White Pearl Metallic w/Frozen Grey accent BMW i8 opted out for a set of aftermarket wheels here. They are Vossen Forged LC-105T wheels. These come in sizes of 22×9 and 22×10 in the front and rear, respectively. With a rather unorthodox Imperial Gold finish, they add a classy, albeit seldom seen touch to this amazing vehicle.
