Superchips coverage of the latest turbo-petrol BMWs extends across the 3-, 4-, 6- and 8-cylinder models, from 1.5L up to the 4.0L V8. Boundaries are there to be broken, and the BMW i8 supercar is no exception.
The BMW i8 uses a version of the 3- cylinder 1.5L engine, similar to that used in the 1 and 2 series as well as the Mini. In the i8 the engine is fitted with a larger turbocharger and different pistons with a lower compression ratio. This is all supplemented by a powerful hybrid energy system with the front wheels being electrically driven and the rear wheels having a mix of electric and internal combustion power. The powertrain has a combined output of 362BHP and 570Nm. The Superchips conversion adds 37bhp to this figure, and 62Nm torque.
This improvement not only provides the car with improved performance – around half a second was removed from the 30-70mph sprint – but also greater driveability and more relaxed cruising.
The conversion can be carried out by one of Superchips’ nationwide dealers and the price of £799 includes labour and VAT. The conversion is covered by Superchips’ no-quibble seven-day money back guarantee and the device itself is also covered by Superchips’ product warranty*.
