Another BMW i8 has been crashed, this time in Turkey, but happily the damages are repairable.
Approximately a month and a half ago, we were reporting about the first incident in which a BMW i8, customer owned, was involved. That took place in Thailand and it was merely a visual one. Now, the images posted below are showing us yet another crashed BMW i8. According to the guys from Wrecked Exotics, the incident took place in Istanbul, Turkey, as the German sports car was involved in a small fender bender, in the traffic. This has left some deep marks on its front fascia so the service bill will definitely weigh quite a lot.
The BMW i8 has been previewed by the concept car wearing the same name. It is currently produced in Leipzig, Germany, and it has a two-door coupe body style. The “green” sports car is packing a 1.5 liter inline turbocharged three-cylinder engine under its hood, along with a 131 HP (98 kW) electric motor, which is taking its juice from a 7.1 kWh lithium ion battery. The total output sent to the wheels is 357 HP (266 kW) and 570 Nm (420 lb-ft) of torque. The range of the car is 600 km (370 miles) and top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph).
