It takes quite something for a modern car to be truly groundbreaking, particularly now we live in a world dominated by amazing hybrids and battery powered wundercars, but the BMW i8 most definitely fits the bill. It’s a car which manages to marry technology so cutting edge it should come with a health and safety warning, great looks and breathtaking performance – no mean feat! Better still it’s a car which has recently been added to the Vorsteiner range of Aero body components, meaning i8 owners now have the option of making their already eye-catching cars that bit more jaw-slackening.
A name best known for its aerodynamics, wind tunnel honed bodywork additions, carbon fibre creations and hyper aggressive alloy wheels, Vorsteiner’s portfolio is ideally suited for the UK market, particularly now that there are so many individuals with high end performance cars keen to stand out from the crowd. Brought to the UK under the umbrella of The Performance Company (TPC), the Vorsteiner kit for the i8 is drawn from its much lauded Aero range and has the potential to utterly transform the look of this already striking looking Munich machine.
Vorsteiner’s offerings for the genre defying i8 are particularly special, and they also suit the space age looking BMW to the ground, making the firm’s kits ideal for those i8 owners looking to make a statement. The full range of Vorsteiner components for the i8 includes a VR-E Aero front spoiler, VR-E Aero rear diffuser and VR-E Aero ‘ducktail’ rear spoiler. Striking enough in their own right, these components have been elevated several stages further by being rendered in glossy carbon fiber. The Aero parts can be ordered separately or, for the full effect, as a complete, show-stopping package. Those opting for the latter will end up with an i8 quite unlike anything else on the road today, the Aero add-ons serving to enhance the aggressive styling put in place by BMW itself.
Pushing the boundaries of art and technology, Vorsteiner is able to supply premium composite components made to exacting standards, all realised in the finest autoclaved pre-impregnated carbon fibre. Vorsteiner carbon fibre provides superior stiffness, aerospace strength and durability compared to traditional hand laid carbon fibre composites, meaning it can be counted upon both to perform and look jaw-dropping for many years and countless miles.
Vorsteiner’s Aero portfolio contains carbon components for the world’s finest performance and exotic machinery, with the i8 being no exception. If you’re looking to make a statement and to stand out amongst the UK’s supercar elite for all the right reasons, this is where you should turn.
