Gabura Racing Technologies Turn BMW i8 Into An Environment Hating Monster

Written By:

Madcap German tuning firm Gabura Racing Technologies have made BMW's eco-friendly i8 sports car into Greenpeace's worst nightmare - a 800bhp V8 powered supercar called the GRT V8i.

The GRT V8i ditches BMW's humble three pot 1.5-litre turbocharged unit and the electric motors for the 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 from the M5 and M6. However, the company has tuned the engine up from 559bhp to an insane 800bhp. A Slightly less unhinged 700bhp version is also available.

To make up for the weight gain, Gabura Racing Technologies have fitted a racing six-speed sequential gearbox with an integrated diff to the back of the GRT V8i, along with a lightweight, titanium exhaust system as well as what it calls "high performance suspension architecture".    

Performance figures are not known, but there is one figure that is known — the price. Gabura Racing Technologies are pricing the GRT V8i at an eye watering 750,000 euros, six times the price of the i8.
