German Special Customs is a car tuning company responsible for the 2015 BMW i8 iTRON, a redesigned body kit made specially for the new plug-in hybrid model.
Design of 2015 BMW i8 iTRON
Guys from the German Special Customs did a great job here. The 2015 BMW i8 iTRON has been heavily modified, featuring a brand-new design that makes the car look even more aggressive. It is available in several exterior colors (check out the gallery after this article). The front end has a new front bumper with added spoiler and new air intakes. The hood now has two opening instead of one, for improved flow of the air, and it is made of carbon. The headlights are surrounded by LED daytime running lamps. On the sides you will notice the new side skirts, small openings in front of the rear fenders, and a set of big 22-inch 5-spoke Y-shaped sports wheels. The rear end received modified exhaust tips, new rear apron, while the winglets and taillights remain the same.
Hybrid Engine and Performance
German Special Customs didn’t make any upgrades to the car’s engine. The 2015 BMW i8 iTRON is still powered by a 1.5L petrol engine with 3 cylinders that can produce 231 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque for the rear wheels. An electric motor drives the front wheels, and it can generate 131 hp and 184 lb-ft of twist. The whole hybrid system is paired with an automatic 6-speed transmission and can deliver a total of 362 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. Car’s electric range is 22 miles, while its total range is between 310 and 372 miles, depending on a selected driving mode. Its maximum speed is 155 mph, and it can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds.
iTRON Body Kit Price
You might ask how much does it cost? Well, the GSC didn’t reveal the price tag of this body kit. Given that the base price of the 2015 BMW i8 starts at $135,925, I think this upgrade won’t cost below 150 thousand dollars.
