Was It Really Necessary To Give The BMW i8 A Style Makeover?

AC Schnitzer

They say you shouldn’t mess with a good thing. These guys don’t care.

BMW tuning specialist AC Schnitzer has just revealed the most comprehensive styling upgrade program for the BMW i8 anyone has ever attempted. Apart from the firm’s logos, the German tuner left its mark on the hybrid sports car by adding carbon-fiber front spoiler elements, side skirts and a rear wing. The i8 has also been lowered by 25mm at the front, and 20mm at the rear to give it a more aggressive stance.

Improving dynamics by hugging the tarmac, the lowered stance also enhances visuals with the fenders snuggly housing a set of new 21-inch AC1 double-spoke lightweight forged alloys. The aftermarket company also claims the interior has been upgraded but failed to supply any pictures.
