Trivia

  • The BMW i8's R&D event uses the general R&D layout used by many R&Ds, starting from the ED Design Torq's event, but in a similar manner to the Renault Alpine Celebration's event, the i8's R&D has its third Ultimate AI Challenge at Test .026. instead of .027.
  • The BMW i8's R&D is the first generic R&D that does not reward any free upgrades.
