The BMW i8 Roadster is a daily driver in Supercar clothing
The specifications of the Hybrid i8 Roadster (from $ 163,300) are not that exciting at first glance. The three-cylinder (that's right, only three), the engine and the electric motor pump out 369 hp and 420 feet of torque, and in 4.4 seconds it'll be zero to 60. Impressive, but not really impressive. For comparison: The new BMW 8 Series Convertible has a whopping 523 hp.
I never really experienced anything during my ride that would be called supercar acceleration. It was more of a sports car acceleration with the fun of an electric motor.
It helps make it look like it went into space to fight Cylons or the Empire Even the villains of Robotech (Macross Saga). Then there are the "butterfly" doors that will feel steam or fog when opened.
While the technology under the hood represents an impressive combination of a small engine and an electric motor, the i8 & # 39; You get the chic driver assistance features of other BMW. No wonder, no one buys such a car for the lane departure warning. In addition, these features increase a car, and the roadster surplus of carbon fiber suggests that BMW wanted to lose as many kilograms. To give more weight to a car, which is a dash and a jamb, it looks like the automaker has bought all the lightweight material at a distance. It makes no sense.
After all, it's a refined reference book for post-processing the printer's fun without being presumptuous, it's also a convertible that's always a plus in m book y and these doors are crazy, but they're fun Fun.
Ku In other words, the i8 is not a supercar. Instead, it's a great car.
