Designed to push limits with more power, speed and manageability, BMW’s new sports classic is engineered with superior aerodynamic handling. True to form, the i8 is defined by swinging scissor doors and a revolutionary hybrid drive train that employs electrical and fuel-based technology. Futuristic in nature with a streamlined exterior in a cone-shaped design and an elegant low-slung roof, BMW’s ergonomically efficient new entry is lightweight and aerodynamic. This sporty coupe with a 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine that delivers 362 hp and 420 pound-feet of torque is coupled with front wheels that utilize an electric motor. From 0-60 in just 4.4 seconds, it hugs the road for a seamlessly smooth ride. At an estimated starting price of $135,700, the BMW i8 is available at Braman Motorcars.
