We love the BMW i8. It looks cool and performs masterfully. It combines everything that we love about BMW into a single sports car that has an advanced electric engine that combines the best of traditional engine technology with electric engine technology and hybrid engine technology. It really is a think of beauty. There has been one complaint that has been expressed by people who love BMW models. The complaint is that the BMW i8 looks like a sports car, but doesn’t really sound like one. It doesn’t have the gentle rolling thunder associated with a sports car cruising down the highway. BMW heard this complaint and have made a correction.
“Besides the electric motor there is also a turbocharged 1.5-liter 3-cylinder gasoline engine, and together they produce 362 horsepower. The car is a plug-in hybrid and it puts its gas-drinking engine to good use. Unfortunately, the i8 just doesn’t sound like what you’d expect from a BMW flagship sports car,” (motorauthority.com). Heinz Performance has created an exhaust system for the BMW i8. It features baffling that can be opened or closed so you can retain your silent motoring or you can open the system up and let your shapely coupe make a little bit of noise. Yes, it will be weird the first time a BMW i8 rumbles on by but it will also be kind of cool to see one that pairs sound with its sporty looks.
