BMW's i8 Spyder Hits Production Snag
|   Wednesday, December 25, 2013
BMW's latest creation – the i8 Spyder – is creating various technical difficulties for its engineering team, insiders have reported. The major problem lies in its reinforced plastic and carbon fiber body work which is difficult to create due to its advanced aerodynamic precision. The material being used is rather difficult to mould and hard to operate with and a convertible body design is rather challenging to cut out.

Experts are currently working this situation over while final reports will be filed soon.
BMW has no specified time frame for design completion. Hence, the engineering team should have sufficient time to figure out what it happening and work on corrective measures. Media reports had previously mentioned that BMW planned on launching its i8 Spyder officially by end 2015 and this decision was taken last week after top level management saw a fully operational proto type.

The i8 Spyder is based on similar drive train as its coupe counterpart, which means a three cylindered engine along with a generator mount at the rear. The electric motor drives its front wheel while total power displacement equaling 228 BHP is achieved. BMW claims to accelerate from 0 – 60 MPH within 4.4 seconds although these figures are yet to undergo tests.

The i8 Spyder Concept was showcased back in 2012 at the Beijing Motor Show and people showed genuine interest in this vehicle. BMW as a result decided to push for production soon after while things were set up for end 2015. This however is not a permanent problem and hence a suitable solution is on the cards. A dedicated engineering team is currently tirelessly working on this build while BMW is trying to get things back on track.

We are keeping a close tab on proceedings at BMW and should be able to get you latest updates regarding the i8 Spyder as soon as BMW come up with a solution. Insiders are also kept close by and we expect BMW to make a breakthrough quite soon. Stay tuned for latest updates and details regarding the vehicle as we will get them to you before others.
