BMW needs a supercar, not a Prius with a $200k price tag.
"Although there have been cries of "needing a V8 , V10 etc" to do so defeats the ideals of the concept and turns it into another premium sports car."
If you think about it, BMW doesnt have one. They have the ///M cars, great, but nothing super exciting, they dont have a supercar. Mercedes has the SLS (and the old SLR), Audi has the R8, Porsche has the 911 (along with the old CGT) and the soon to release 918 hybrid. What does BMW have? Nothing that can compete. Its unfortunate, I like BMW, but when it comes to exciting exotics, they are not on any lists.
