The facelifted BMW i8 Coupé has just landed in Malaysia, sporting a look that’s largely unchanged from before. Price has gone up a bit, now costing RM1.31 million a pop compared to the RM1.2 million sticker price that came with its predecessor.

It’s an absolute stunner in the metal, featuring blanked out grille, full LED headlights, 20-inch Jet Black alloy wheels, scissor doors and a sleek Donington Grey paint from the BMW Individual selection. Inside, the gearstick and iDrive dial is finished in a nice black ceramic coating, and the cabin can be further customised through BMW Individual as well.

The biggest change is actually the unseen – battery capacity is up (11.6 kWh now, from 7.1 kWh) by 50%, allowing a pure electric range of 55 km. The electric motor is also updated to provide 141 hp (105 kW), which is a 12 hp (9 kW) increase from before. Together with the BMW TwinPower Turbo 1.5 litre three-cylinder engine (228 hp/320 Nm), the PHEV’s total system output is rated at 374 hp, enough to do the century sprint in 4.4 seconds. Its top speed is electronically-limited to 250 km/h.

Watch the video above as we take you through a quick tour of the updated coupé. Also, enjoy the gallery below, and as usual, let us know what you think of the new i8. Would you pick this over, say, a Mercedes-AMG GT S?
