Arrow BMW i8 spotted in India!

Found this pic of the BMW i8 in India ahead of the AE2014 launch.

If you'd remember, the concept i* also made a visit to India few years back for the MI filming, this is the final production version.

According to some insiders, the car is rumored to be priced around 1.4cr.

Wow! This is one long-awaited super car. If it really gives what it is said to, I hope to see quite a few on our roads. Nice to see it finally made to our shores. Nice find!

On-road price will be well over the Rs.2 Crore mark for sure.

I heard from my BMW Dealer that the Chennai Service Managers, were sent recently to Delhi for training on new technologies in BMW and servicing the vehicles. Apparently, only a few exclusive dealers were invited in the country, will check on this, might be a pre training to the i8 launch,
Until we get one in Chennai, here's a test video by Chris Harris,

Default BMW I8 from start to finish

Hi BHPians,

Came across this series of videos in Youtube on BMW i8, the entire process of manufacture from start to finish. Not sure if it shared here.

(Admin, Kindly remove this post if it has already been shared. Ran a search and did not find one though)

(1) Assembling of life module



(2) Adding the exterior and interior



(3) Finishing touches to hood, tail lights etc.



(4) Dyno Test



(5) Rolling of the production line

Here's what I sourced out from bharathautos.com and shifting-gears.com. Apparently from the shabby snaps, I guess, both the i8s come with the iBlue tinge along with 20" W-spoke tires. IMO, the Turbine 625 would look more plush.
