The BMW Group has recently announced that next year the current version of the car racing series GT3 – BMW Z4 GT3 will be replaced.

A talented car designer John Sibal decided to compete fully electric car would come up in the racing modifications i8 GT3.

Unfortunately, this is unlikely to happen, as BMW has denied the possibility of “crossing” of sub-brands i and M, even in the near future. In addition, an electric car with a 1.5-liter 3-cylinder engine will be difficult to compete with the venerable supercars, equipped with a powerful “eights”.

Another obstacle to the races for i8 GT3 can be a weight indicator, because the addition of the electric motor and the battery increases the weight of the car. In motorsports, however, even one “extra” program can dramatically affect the outcome of the race.
