2014 BMW i8 Production Model Breaks Cover
If these photos, grabbed from autowp.ru prove to be the real deal, we're looking at a great car, especially on the inside. The exterior seems to be roughly exactly what we expected, almost identical to the Concept car unveiled by BMW, without the transparent doors.
On the inside though, we're in for a surprise. The whole thing looks just amazing, completely new and refreshing, whilst also keeping the BMW spirit alive. Just like in the case of the i3, the i8 too manages to feel Bavarian in a conservative way and futuristic at the same time.
The instrument cluster is completely digital, the seats are high and thin, the start button is next to the gearshift knob on the center console. On the passenger side, the air vents are doubled and the position has been changed, being located closer to the center of the car.
Another interesting aspect you might notice is the blue circle around the logo on the steering wheel, a feature that seems to become a trademark for all i cars.
