The BMW i8 is popping-up in our news again, this time the model being seen in Netherlands and wearing the signature of the famous German based Manhart tuning company.

In fact, Manhart started the tuning program on this BMW i8 last year, the tuner wouldn’t reveal back then all the ingredients that made it look the way it looks right now. And as we can depict from the photos, the BMW`s first plug-in hybrid does look quite sensational.

The first thing that makes it a real standout model is the car`s paintjob, which abounds with black and orange accents, giving it a more aggressive look, also thanks to the new set of Manhart alloy wheels, finished in the same black. Other interesting body parts refer to the smoked lights or the gloss black kidney grilles.
