While only a hybrid, the i8 is a step forward in the evolution of the sports car, which will – somewhere down the road – produce a fully electric supercar by the Bavarian car maker. The BMW i8 comes with a powerful powertrain and impressive fuel economy. Developed especially for this model, the powertrain is a combination of a 1.5 liter three-cylinder petrol engine and electric motors, powering all four wheels. The combustion engine develops 170 kW/231 hp and drives the rear wheels of the BMW i8.

Furthermore, there is a 96 kW/131 hp electric drive as well, sending its power to the front wheels and allowing for an all-electric range of up to 35 kilometers (22 miles) and a top speed of 120 km/h (75 mph). Thanks to this powertrain combination, the BMW i8 will accelerate from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in just 4.2 seconds. The hybrid is capable of going all the way up to an electronically limited top speed of 155mph (250km/h).

Hence, it’s no wonder that ADV.1 Wheels decided to use one to show off their all-new Advanced Series aftermarket wheels. The Advanced Series by ADV.1 feature contemporary designs matched with improved back-pocketing, resulting in excess material removal and improved weight reduction.

Additionally, the wheels feature complete titanium hardware, giving the wheels an even more improved weight profile overall. This particular ride features their ADV510 Track Spec Advanced Series wheels. In turn, the BMW i8 is looking even more aggressive and futuristic overall.

The wheels come sized 22×9 and 22×10.5 in the front and rear, respectively. Matching the Sophisto Gray Metallic w/ BMW iElectric Blue accent finish combination found on the car, the wheels feature a similar color scheme: the front face is finished in a Fine Textured Gunmetal finish, while the lips feature Polished Matte Blue accents, giving them an intricate overall look.
