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.
— Official description [1]

The 2015 BMW i8 is a RWD hybrid supercar by BMW featured in Forza Horizon 3 as part of the Rockstar Energy Car Pack, and as standard in all subsequent titles.

Synopsis

The i8, internally codenamed I12, is a plug-in hybrid supercar developed by BMW for its hybrid model range "BMW i." It is BMW's first road-going mid-engined car since the BMW M1 and is heavily inspired by the BMW M1 Hommage concept car.

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

Its powerplant includes a 1499 cc turbocharged inline-three engine codenamed B38A15T0 along with a hybrid electric synchronous motor. The combustion engine produces 228 hp (170 kW) at 5800 rpm and 236 ft·lb (320 N·m) of torque at 3700 rpm, and outputs a total of 357 hp (266 kW) and the 420 ft·lb (570 N·m) of torque with the electric motor.

Performance

The BMW i8 can do 0 to 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 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.6 seconds, 0 to 100 mph (161 km/h) in 9 seconds, and a top speed of at least 194 mph (312 km/h).
