BMW i8

Does anyone have any recordings of this car? It’s only driven 30mph tops in the show and isn’t around for long so I don’t need a ton of material. Just stop and go in a residential area. Interior and exterior. Thanks in advance!

Pole Position has a lot of BMW. Ask them.

Or, Ask Sound Dogs. Lots of stuff recorded, just not at sites.

Its technically a Mini Copper 1.6 3cyl Turbo motor.
Thus a 2014 to 2019 Mini will work.

Bear in mind it uses what they call 'Active Sound Design' and actually plays extra sounds both inside and outside the car so it's not entirely accurate just to use the Mini engine sound.

The i8 sounds like sh1t. It looks cool, just stick a v12 noise under it
