The World's Most Extreme BMW i3 Is A Wide-Bodied EV With Attitude
Japanese BMW tuning company Eve.Ryn has turned its attentions to BMW's new i3 model. The results are, shall we say, breathtaking...
The BMW i3 is a fairly new electric/range extender city car. It’s been carefully designed by BMW to be as light as possible (1270kg for the EV and 1390kg for the range extender), to be as slippery as hours of wind-tunnel testing will allow, and to eke as many miles from one full battery charge as humanly possible.
The i3 has not, then, been designed by BMW to wear a wide-body kit and a fat set of sticky rubber. Which is exactly why Japanese tuning company Eve.Ryn has done just that with its new Evo i3 creation.
As you can see from the images, the Japanese tuning house has not held back with its modifications. At the front of the i3, for example, it’s added a super-aggressive front bumper with deep (and pointless) cooling ducts. The new bumper also features carbonfibre accents and is a far cry from the original car’s smooth face.
The rear of the Evo i3 gets a similar makeover with a redesigned, carbonfibre-clad bumper. The biggest visual difference at the rear, however, is the Evo i3’s noticably wider track, fat rubber and stance.
The custom rims measure 20 inches in diameter and help to set off the Evo i3’s stanced look nicely, as do the flared arches.
Technical details are currently unknown, but are expected to be revealed by the Japanese tuning firm soon.
