Not hard to estimate that production model lauch will happen IAA 2013. Great, excellent, thank you very much BMW! It was great moment to see the future of modern sportcar in IAA 2009 when VED started to drive around black hall in day 1. And I'll be there this year also. And hopefully 2013.
i8 is something that make you want it. I'v tried to find something to replace my M3 but have been unable to see any idea to buy new 6-series, M5, new M6 or anything else that costs reasonably. If i8 is not far over 150 000 euros here, I'll set my order as soon as it's possible. This car has something that changes the game forever and I want to be in the first row to see it. Especially I'm impressed about 4-wheel drive capability - I can use i8 around the year also in wintertime.
