So you want BMW to make a mid-engine NA supercar? Okay. But let's leave the God forsaken i8 out of that conversation, please!

One thing is for sure here. The privateer who made this abomination is a trolling master. Can we please close this thread so the additional comments won't add to my headache?
Don't read the thread - no headache.

What they want but cannot afford I can't imagine how much money this cost.

You could make the car look like anything it's purely aesthetic.
Hence the "silhouette" part of the title and name of the class it races in
I wasn't referring to the thread title or racing series or whatever, it was to all the comments about putting a v8 in the i8...

Meet the BMW i8 GTR, only it wasn’t built by BMW.

The car BMW should make but never made.
I was really disappointed when BMW announced the 8 series. It was not the supercar I imagined, and BMW is definitely capable of making, but decide not to.

"Wow, I should have had a V10!"

Great effort and sounds intoxicating. Only 2 cylinders from perfection!
