The BMW i8 Coupé 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 gull wing 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 Coupé is a perfect symbiosis of form and function that knows only one direction: forward.

The interior of the BMW i8 Coupé 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. In the dark, the LED interior lighting ensures a high-quality ambience. The contour lines of the doors, the instrument panel and the centre console and the steering wheel can be optionally and alternately dipped in the colours EfficientDynamics Blue, Amber Yellow and White.
