I think it's really smart for BMW to put a small engine in the i8. To keep the car relatively affordable(Not a supercar or HyperCar price tag) While keeping the performance of a M3.

Because who is the competitor to the i8 anyway? No one. This is a new generation of cars and this is just a preview of things to come.

I think your crazy if you think this will be cheaper then say an R8 or SLS...look at the F12 M6 it's base price is very close to that of an R8 V8. This i8 will easily be 130-150k
