Gabura Racing a German company dedicated to engineering specializing in gearboxes and car racing events as competition has announced that it is working on a fairly radical transformation of one of the models most technologically advanced BMW: the i8.
And what is this transformation? Nothing less than the abolition of all its hybrid system and combustion engine and 1.5-liter three-cylinder that despite not having a 400 hp makes the 0-100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds. Instead it lands a motor totally different approach and philosophy: S63 V8 twin-turbo BMW itself which has 4.4 liters and is mounted on models like the BMW M6 settling in the front.
But that's not all: in addition it has been retouched by Alpina to achieve an extra 200 hp thus reaching the 800 hp distributed through a sequential gearbox mounted on the rear axle.
Prestacionales not know the figures that the given set are still finalizing their development is but considering doubling the current power model series which is not exactly slow- you can get an idea of how it shall be. In any case we can not overlook ask you a question do you think a heresy? Or on the other hand you have wet dreams imagining the BMW i8 roaring V8 and similar arsenal of horses?
In our case we must admit that the latter happens more
