If BMW made an i8 race car…

…it'd look something like this. TG's favourite renderiser cooks up a mad track hybrid, we beg BMW to build it

He's only gone and done it again.'s good friend Jon Sibal has made merry with the crayons and cooked up a work of Bavarian genius.

Mr Sibal has rendered a racing version of BMW's i8 supercar, and it looks angry. Good angry.

Jon hasn't revealed much information about the project, but who needs a reason? It's a wide-bodied, flared-arch BMW i8 with a socking great front splitter, angry fins and vents dotted all over the body, and a mighty rear wing.

He's tastefully decked it out in stealth grey, too. Of course, because it's not real, any potential drivetrain is a moot point - but might we humbly suggest the twin-turbo straight-six from the new BMW M4, augmented with at least four electric motors?

This is the Alfa Romeo 4C 'RS'
