Gabura Racing Technologies have announced their plan to fit a twin turbo V8 engine in BMW i8. The engine is sourced from a BMW M6 which initially tuned by Alpina. Gabura Racing engineers plan to squeeze up to 800 hp from the 4.4-liter engine. They plan to fit the engine at the front of the car.
Gabura Racing Technologies is German tuner who specialize in racing gearbox. For the BMW i8, they plan to match the V8 engine with 6-speed sequential manual transmission. Would they be the first who are able to come out with the fastest BMW i8? Only time will tell. We are eager to see the result.
