i8 is incredible

Can't believe people don't like this car.

I think its the best styled BMW in years. A lot of what they produce at the minute is bland and goes unnoticed. The new 3 series for example, loads of them around already and no excitement generated (having said that I saw a new 6 recently, which did turn a few heads).

If you drove the i8 around any street in any place in the world, everyone would stop what they were doing and stare open mouthed. I cannot think of any other car, present or future, which will cause such a stir as the i8.

Its the future, but now. The hybrid nature is the way things are going, the performance and economy figures are just a bonus to the way this car looks.

It ticks every box for me. I am praying I win the lottery just so I can afford this car. I got goosebumps seeing it briefly in Mission Impossible, no car has ever done that for me.

It is immense. When you see one drive by you in the street sometime in the future you will know what I mean.
