The BMW i8 Roadster will be launched only next year confirmed BMW. However, this hasn’t stopped the German carmaker to give us a glimpse of the upcoming drop-top i8 in the newest teaser video. Expect the i8 Spyder to be revealed at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.

In the teaser video, the i8 Roadster is showing off its aerodynamic shape in a wind tunnel. The all-new i8 Roadster has been spotted on many occasions, however, the latest spy images from the streets of Munich reveal the car to be production ready. The third member of the new i family, after the i8 and i3, the i8 Roadster is still wearing the webbed-style camouflaged body in the teaser. The black fabric roof will either be a removable panel or will fold down in between the seat and the electric powertrain at the rear.

The characteristic aero profile of the facelifted i8 is retained with new signature LED headlights and tail lights. The space-age CRPF bodywork will ensure the minimal increase in weight. As far as powertrain is concerned, the i8 Spyder is expected to scrounge the upgrade from the i8 Formula E-Safety car. The battery pack will be upgraded from 7.1kWh, in the standard i8, to 10kWh resulting in a higher driving range. With the combination of a tweaked three-cylinder 1.5-litre IC engine and the electric motor at the front axle, the power output is expected to surge to over 400 horsepower.
