Sachin Tendulkar is a major car fanatic and is the brand enthusiast of BMW in India. Most of the cars in his garage get the BMW moniker on it and he owns quite a few of them. Sachin Tendulkar’s garage is full of luxury vehicles like BMW 7-Series, BMW M3, BMW M4 and even the futuristic sportscar – the BMW i8.
The Master Blaster has a major love towards his BMW i8 and he is often spotted on the weekends with his i8. He moves around the suburbs of Mumbai most of the time during early hours to enjoy the empty roads of the city. The BMW i8 he owns is in white and blue stock colour but soon after he received the vehicle, Sachin chose to go for a different theme and get a new look for the vehicle. Sachin got his vehicle painted in a custom red with custom blue accents.
Recently, Sachin Tendulkar made some major changes to his i8 and it looks way different from any other BMW i8 in the world. Sachin Tendulkar got the vehicle modified by the popular DC Designs, which is one of the most popular car modification garages in India.
The BMW i8 looks quite good and aggressive in its stock form but with the new changes, it has become one of its kind. The BMW i8 seen in the pictures get a custom made grille, which is very aggressive visually and is completely different from the stock grille, which is plain shiny black in looks. It changes the look of the car completely. The front bumper has been redesigned completely too and it gets bigger air dams. There is a front bumper splitter too that adds a sporty stance to the car.
DC Designs have also completely transformed the rear of the vehicle. It now gets a new customised bumper that echoes the same aggressive looks of the front bumpers. Additionally, the rear gets quad exhaust tips that are exposed. It also gets a wider body look, thanks to the vented rear bumper panels.
It is definitely the only customised BMW i8 in India. Even in the world, a customised BMW i8 can be a rare sight. Sachin has been driving for years now but this is the first time he has customised his vehicles so aggressively. The vehicle also gets a new paint scheme. It removes the blue highlights and gets black highlights all over instead.
The BMW i8 gets a futuristic design that has been applauded and criticised by many. It is the first hybrid sports car from the German brand and it gets powered by a mere 1.5-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine and an electric motor. The petrol engine generates a maximum power of 231 Bhp and 321 Nm of peak torque. The electric motor is tuned to produce a maximum of 131 Bhp and 250 Nm. Combined, the i8 gets a maximum power of 362 Bhp and 570 Nm. It is quite quick and can hit a ton in just 4.4 seconds from a standstill.
