About BMW i8

The 2017 BMW i8 performance coupe is a rather unusual halo car. While its exotic styling and impressive performance are designed to highlight BMW’s brightest ideas, this car comes with a catch. Instead of a massive V8 or V12 engine, the i8 coupe employs a tiny turbocharged 3-cylinder gasoline engine mated to an electric motor powered by a massive battery bank. This setup, in conjunction with a lightweight carbon-fiber and aluminum body, helps the i8 deliver acceleration and handling on par with such giants as the Audi R8 and Mercedes-Benz AMG GT, but with fuel economy more in line with a 2 Series. Then again, with its limited production and $140,000 price tag, the 2017 BMW i8 is no Prius, although it is definitely green.
