Well done to BMW for taking a lead in developing exciting performance hybrids.
Hate to piss on a parade but his is "required" R&D. This will never be a mainstream production and the price point will be ridiculous. They havent done "well done", really none of them have. I for one am not a big fan of alternate power in my driveway because I havent seen anything worth a crap. Until they start getting serious about it then who would want to drive these "look at us" cars.
I agree ... slap a hog of a V10 in it and call it WUNDERBAR!
