end of October Some virtual images of a BMW i8 were spilling out from the Japanese tuner Liberty Walk Performance over to us. They showed the Bavarian hybrids exactly as Liberty imagines extreme and complete without understatement! And shortly afterwards to Sema Auto Show then it was time and the i8 was presented to the world public. And of course we would like to introduce you to the finished vehicle. The presentation vehicle was developed in cooperation with the rim manufacturer Savini Wheels and got a full reel from the professionals of Impressive Wrap, And otherwise, all the manufacturers are represented at the I8 which have rank and name in the industry. But let's start with the body kit.
Liberty Walk widebody BMW i8
It shines in the familiar design and gives the apron a huge front splitter and canards on the side. As always, the huge widenings for the fenders are particularly striking. Typically Liberty, the tuner installs them with exposed screw connections and thus achieves significantly more vehicle width, especially at the rear. There was also a large ducktail spoiler lip and a powerful diffuser. A fixed, large rear wing can also be ordered as an option. And matching rocker swords with small flaps are also included in the scope of delivery of the body kit. The body is then staged extremely blatantly by the team using the aforementioned 3M full wrap Impressive Wrap.
matt green Army color using 3M foil
It wraps the i8 in a dull green Army color that was optically weathered, almost as if it had been on the vehicle for many years. An unbelievably successful look which we think is great for the vehicle. And the wheel set in matte black installed here is also successful. These are forged wheels from the shelf of Savini Wheels the ultra-flat ones Toyo Tires Tires were purchased and of course only because of an extreme lowering so consistently and millimeter in the wheel well sitting.
Airlift Performance Airride
And in order to achieve this lowering, nothing other than an airlift performance air suspension was considered. It allows the i8 to be raised to a mobile level at any time at the push of a button. In the completely drained state, even an ant with upward gelled hair should become an obstacle ^^. And even if the plug-in hybrid is only allowed to enjoy a 1,5l 3-cylinder ex works, FI Exhaust has even managed the unit something like a soundscape to miss.
That's why we like the electrical future
We can therefore state that the virtual pictures did not promise too much and especially in combination with the foiling, the wheelset and of course the extreme lowering of this show vehicle is one of the most extreme based on the BMW i8.
