About BMW i8
A halo car is one that shines its goodness throughout a brand, and they usually have huge exotic styling, massive performance and huge engines. At first glance, the 2016 BMW i8 looks like that kind of car, but there's a catch: Under its next-next-generation styling, there's a small 3-cylinder engine, an electric motor and a whole lot of batteries. It makes good on the promises of its styling, but in a way that minimizes fuel consumption. Unlike the massive powerplants in the Audi R8 or Mercedes-Benz AMG GT, the BMW i8 uses a lightweight carbon-fiber-and-aluminum structure paired with an electric-and-gasoline combination good for 357 horsepower. With a price of about $140,000, think Porsche Panamera Hybrid, not Toyota Prius or Cadillac ELR.
