Now that formula has been enhanced with a refurbished design, some battery and motor tweaks, and the introduction of a two-seat topless i8 Roadster.
BMW says the all-electric roof opens and closes "very quietly" in 15 seconds, at speeds of up to 50 km/h (31 mph).
BMW has also upgraded the battery pack for both new models, raising capacity to 11.6kWh up from the previous i8's 7.1kWh.
BMW has modified the windscreen as well in order to accommodate the new roof.
Federal judge: military must allow transgender recruits starting on January 1

The refreshed i8 and new i8 Roadster should be hitting Canadian dealerships around spring 2018.
It's taken a few years, but BMW has finally released a Roadster version of its futuristic i8 sports auto and the new body style coincides with a few upgrades to the Coupe, including a more powerful drivetrain. The automobiles also get an additional 12 horsepower out of the system bringing it up the total to 369 horsepower.
Electric driving range is now up to 34 miles for the Coupe and 33 for the Roadster, and thanks to lifts in the upper speed limits the motor can sustain, you can now drive at up to 62mph on electric power in hybrid mode, up from 43mph before. The electric motor driving the front wheels gets 12bhp more power (now 141bhp) while the 1.5-litre petrol triple driving the rear wheels is unchanged in power (at 228bhp) but is said to sound sportier than before.
The engine is now boosted to 231hp giving a combined power output to 374hp which gives the i8 performance figures of 0 to 60 in 4.4 seconds for the Coupe and 4.6 seconds for the Roadster.
OSU coach Mike Gundy has phone conversations with Tennessee
Gundy was in Oklahoma City recruiting Monday and was asked by Tennessee to meet on that day, but Gundy told them he was busy. Low's report contradicts this, stating that Gundy hasn't met face-to-face with Vols officials.
Electric-only range is up to 18 miles - a gain of 3 miles.
Standard features on both the coupe and roadster include a fast charging cable, the Professional satellite navigation system, the company's latest tile-based iDrive infotainment system, a freestanding 8.8-inch screen, dynamic damper control, automated emergency braking, cruise control, and a 2.2-inch touchscreen display built into the key fob.
I've always been a fan of the somewhat controversial design of the BMW i8 and I still am with this new version and especially with what they did with the new roadster. For reference, an i8 Coupe starts at $144,395 today. The new 20-inch alloy wheels that come with the vehicle shave off 1kg each over the previous seen on the auto. The iconic gullwing doors have also been retained.
It sure looks tempting in this new hue, called E-Copper.
