2015 BMW i8


PRICE : For BMW i8 $135,925 

ABOUT AND SECIFICATION : Like the i3, the i8 features a unique “LifeDrive” architecture consisting of a carbon-fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) body riding on an aluminium platform that holds its running gear.That running gear includes a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine, putting out 231 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque, mounted in the rear and driving the back wheels through a six-speed automatic gearbox.An electric motor drives the front wheels. It’s rated at 96 kilowatts (131 hp) and 184 lb-ft of torque. Power comes from a 5-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack, mounted in the tunnel between the two seats.Combined, gasoline and electricity produce 362 hp and 420 lb-ft. BMW says that will get the i8 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, and on to an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.The powertrain is helped by a low 3,285-pound curb weight and a drag coefficient of 0.26.BMW’s first plug-in hybrid also has an electric-only range of 22 miles, as long as speeds are kept below 75 mph. That might be hard to do in such a gorgeous sports car.
