The 2016 BMW i9 is the scheduled to be launched in 2016 or when the Bavarian motor company turns 100 years of its foundation. BMW marks the occasion with the unveiling of the new BMW i9 hybrid Supercar that as seen from the pictures, has a futuristic look even compared to BMW i8, and a pretty wild design. BMW obviously wanted to tickle the imagination of its fans when it had announced the model for 2016. One graphic designer decided to offer his vision for the future model of BMW.
Is the 2016 BMW i9 concept taken too far in the future?
However, we believe that this lover of the Bavarian giant has gone too far in the future, so when the real BMW i9 appears, it will most likely have less radical views. Our guessing is that the vehicle will be built on the 4-door i8-style chassis. It will be also featuring an upgraded lodge, bigger front end with the new energetic look.
The model is stunning inside as it is outside. The cowhide seats are movable and comfortable for each traveler. The entire lodge is made for long and quick driving. The greatest thing here is the dashboard; It’s very clear with infinitely important and advanced data on the vast touchscreen. Some of the features are route framework, remote charging, voyage control, control and security framework, airbags, stopping sensors, forward and in reverse impact framework.
Reportedly, the new model will be a challenge for La Ferrari, McLaren P1, and Porsche 918 Spyder. The power source that this concept will use will be based on the BMW i8.
2016 BMW’s model lively and fit body shape is made of characteristic materials, similar to carbon fiber. The wider and smiling front grille has an attractive configuration, which fulfills the trapezoidal front end.
As the BMW i8 is equipped with a 1.5 liter 3-cylinder turbocharged engine and an electric motor, the concept will be equipped with a 3.0-liter, 6-cylinder. The engine will be paired with power unit with a total power greater than that of the model i8 – 362 hp and 570 Nm.
Since the engine has a larger electric motor to contribute, it will accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than 4 seconds.
The beginning cost is $135,000, but we can’t know if it’s going to change by the time it hits production.
