BMW i8 Spotted at a Charging Station in Germany

Thank god for spy photographers or anyone with a good camera that happens to stumble upon an unsuspecting prototype in camouflage like, let's say, the i8.

The hybrid sports car from BMW was recently spotted in Germany whilst recharging at an electric station. This model though was different from the ones we usually see in the spyshots.(

This one had right-hand drive and allowed the photographer to take a couple of shots of the interior too, even though they aren't too revealing. Similar to the i3, the i8 will also have a very high-tech interior with a lot of useful information displayed on all kinds of LCDs and on the HUD.

As for the specs, as might already know, the i8 will be powered by an electric motor that produces 170 HP (similar to the one found in the i3) and a 3-cylinder 1.5-liter turbocharged unit that develops around 220 HP. With this set-up, the i8 is rumored to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in under 4.5 seconds thanks to its ultralight body.
