Pros&Cons

Pros

  • Gorgeous Looks. Sleek, low-slung, and muscular looking is sure to turn heads anywhere you go.

  • Fancy & Plush Interior Cabin. The high-tech, modern and well-appointed cabin delivers plenty of everyday comforts.

  • Great Riding Dynamics. Delivers plenty of power, while also having outstanding road-handling capabilities with of appeal.

Cons

  • Limited Boot Space. The space is just enough for a weekend trip, however most of the space is already gobbled up by the 20-inch space-saver which leaves very little room for anything else.

  • Android Auto. For some reason, Android Auto hasn’t integrated into the technology system. Apple users will be happy that Apple CarPlay is a standard feature, but Android users will have to sit back and wonder why they haven't been included yet.

    BMW i8 Roadster – Overview

    The BMW i8 Roadster looks much sleeker and gorgeous than ever before, with a wider and low-slung stance giving it a smart road presence reminiscent of one of the most practical convertibles available in the market. The BMW i8 Roadster could make the other more affordable convertibles look paler with its revamped design in and out compared to its rival Toyota Supra, Lotus Exige Roadster and Mercedes Benz SLC Class.

  • Exterior

    BMW i8 Roadster – Exterior

    The BMW i8 Roadster retains the futuristic swooping, low-slung design of the Coupé – including the eye-catching dihedral doors – but with the addition of a fabric roof that folds away electrically in just 15 seconds at speeds of up to 50 km/h. The C-pillars of the i8 Roadster have the “Roadster” inscription. A similar logo can be found on the tail of the two-seater. The coupe gets its own “Coupe” badging at the same places.

    Other styling cues are shared. Highlights include gullwing doors, the low bonnet, almost fully blanked off kidney grille, air flap control system, Air Curtains in the front apron, sealed underbody, contoured side skirts, “stream flow” lines on the flanks, and air ducts between the rear lights and roof frame. 

    It can tell the model apart from the hardtop through silver panels on the C-pillar, equipped with Roadster badging. Only one colour is offered here, and it’s the hero colour E-Copper, with matte grey accents. The wheels are 20-inch W-spoke style 470 alloys in an exclusive double-spoke design. Thanks to newly-designed frameless gullwing doors made from CFRP with an aluminium outer shell, and a windscreen frame made entirely from CFRP, among other measures.

    BMW i8 Roadster – Interior

    The BMW i8 Roadster match with Accaro interior colour scheme, plus dry carbon interior trim. rear seats of the Coupé, instead gaining 92 litres in storage space behind the front seats. That’s quite a lot, considering the two seats (i8 Coupe is 2+2) that the boot behind the mid-mounted engine measures just 88 litres. 

    Features such as LED headlights with high beam assist, keyless entry, push-button start, power-adjustable seats with driver’s side memory, a head-up display, dual-zone auto climate control and a 360-degree camera. Opening the roof raises the rear window automatically by around 30 mm into a “comfort position”. 

    This allows it to mimic the effect of a conventional draught stop in reducing air turbulence inside the cabin. The driver can adjust the height of the rear window at the touch of a button and thus control the impact of the inflowing air as desired.

    The BMW i8 Roadster power is sent to the rear wheels through an Aisin six-speed automatic transmission. The BMW i8 Roadster features a carbon fibre monocoque over an aluminium frame, which means that despite the fitment of a folding roof mechanism and additional strengthening struts and panels around the axles, the soft-top model is only 60 kg heavier than the hardtop, bringing the total kerb weight to 1,595 kg.
