As if the BMW i8 wasn’t dramatic enough, Vorsteiner went and created an i8 that is sure to catch the eye, for better or worse. In preparation of this year’s GoldRush Rally, the tuning shop finished up its i8 project with an aero kit, new shoes, and a brand-heavy blue and white wrap.
 
Starting from the bottom up, the custom Forged VFE-301 wheels are unique to this i8. The gunmetal finish offsets the dramatic silver, black, and blue accents on the body.

Underneath that dramatic new wrap, the i8 gets a custom aero kit that includes a new front fascia, a rear diffuser, and some subtle enhancements to the side skirts. It’s hard to see it all under that polarizing wrap, but it’s there.
 
Power remains the same; a 357-horsepower hybrid 3-cylinder sends power to all four-wheels efficiently. 0-60 mph is handled quickly in just 3.2 seconds.

Vorsteiner’s i8 will make its debut at the GoldRush Rally in the next few days.
