The BMW i8 experience is no longer available for purchase. We can't bear to fully say goodbye to this jaw-dropping experience, so we've left this page up as a reminder of the good times we shared.
The BMW i8 is about as far from the usual BMW template as you can get. The engine is a tiny 1.5-litre turbo three-cylinder, mounted transversely ahead of the rear wheels. Tiny, but mighty: it produces 231bhp. There’s a 131bhp electric motor up front and a big plug-in electric battery to give it serious potency. All this is packed into a carbon fibre tub and wrapped in stunning bodywork; it looks like a concept car that’s escaped from the motor show stage. Radical? You bet.
Put to rest any doubts you may have. It’s radical and other-worldly but the BMW i8 works like a charm as a sports car. You’d almost never believe it was an eco-chomping hybrid, doing an amazing impression of a gas powered straight six rather than a little turbo triple. It’s ruddy quick, and traction is fantastic.
Cornering is equally wonderful, despite the multiple of power sources and options for front and rear axles. It’s roll-free and very agile, while the steering is terrific. Consistency is high, which means so too is confidence, and it’s only on rare occasions that you feel a trace of understeer.
This is a supercar from the future. This BMW supercar shows the establishment the way. It's superb.
