The 2015 BMW i8 is a hybrid supercar that appears in Forza Horizon 3 as part of the Rockstar Energy Car Pack and in Forza Motorsport 7.

The i8, internally codenamed I12, is a plug-in hybrid supercar developed by BMW as part of BMW's "Project I" and manufactured under a new model range; BMW i. The BMW i8 is BMW's first road-going mid-engined car since the BMW M1 and is heavily inspired by the BMW M1 Hommage concept car, which in turn pays homage to BMW's last production mid-engined sports car prior to the i8: the BMW M1.

The BMW i8 is also unique in that it is one of the very few mid-engined cars that uses a 2+2 configuration, with another being the Lotus Evora.

Description

Whether you have been looking forward to the BMW i8 for its hybrid efficiency or its stout performance, both are here at your fingertips. The innovative i8 brings an electrically-powered front-drive system together with a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine powering the rear wheels. The two systems merge seamlessly for a driving experience like none other. The i8’s full carbon fiber body helps keep its weight down and makes for a rigid structure that contributes to its nimble handling. Too often, car manufacturers come out with a cool concept then take out much of the “cool” before production. The i8 is the exception and is exceptional.

Characteristics

The BMW i8's powerplant includes a 1.5 L (1,499 cc) turbocharged inline-3 engine under the codename B38A15T0 along with a hybrid electric synchronous motor. The i3 engine alone produces 228 hp (170 kW) at 5,800 rpm and 236 ft·lb (320 N·m) of torque at 3,700 rpm, while the electric motor produces 129 hp (96 kW) and 184 ft·lb (250 N·m); combined, the power output is 357 hp (266 kW) and the torque 420 ft·lb (570 N·m). The i8 uses a 7.1 kWh lithium-ion battery and can run for 23 mi (37 km) under the New European Driving Cycle and 15 mi (24.14 km) under the US EPA. The transmission used is an Aisin F21-360 FT EOP six-speed automatic.

The BMW i8 can do 0 - 60 mph (97 km/h) within 4.3 seconds and reach a top speed that is electronically restricted to 155 mph (250 km/h), although in the Forza titles, its performance is different: 0 - 60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.6 seconds, 0 - 100 mph (161 km/h) in 9 seconds, and a top speed of at least 194 mph (312 km/h).
