The vehicle will be colored with a two-toe exterior color with a set of black wheels and a high-performance braking system with yellow calipers. The i8 will also be fitted with a power-retractable soft top that will nee 15 seconds to get lowered at up to 31mph.

The interior is of course covered with Alcantara like the two-tone Alcantara sports seats with yellow contrast stitching, a yellow inner section with laser cut holes and more. Powering it is a plug-in hybrid powertrain that will consist of a 1.5 liter turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine that will be paired with an 11.6 kWh lithium-ion battery pack and an electric motor.

The engine will be offering about 369hp and will need 4.6 seconds to go from 0-62mph with a top speed of 155mph.
