BMW i8

There are few cars that make a stronger first impression than the BMW i8. A plug-in hybrid with exterior styling that wouldn’t look out of place in a sci-fi epic, the i8 is one of a kind. Its mix of efficient technology, sporting credentials, and an astronomical price tag leave it with few natural competitors.

It gets better:

Three pistons combusting internally, a dash of electrons and lots of aluminum and carbon fiber are the i8’s main ingredients. Its 357-hp hybrid powertrain drives all four wheels. The i8  can hit 60 mph in 4.0 seconds and 38 MPGe on 200-mile test run. The poised chassis and sharp steering are good fun, but eco-friendly tires and regenerative braking hinder performance. Familiar controls nestle in a plush cabin; the i8’s eye-catching styling is straight out of a sci-fi flick.

Here is some quick Specs:

Top Speed: 156 mph

0-60: 4.0 sec
