I wouldn't rule out the laser headlights yet. The i8 is not in the FEP stage yet, and the headlights definitely don't look like they are the production ones yet.

Agree 100%. If this is BMWs design language for a hot sports car, they're not speaking to me at all.

The Fisker Karma, any Aston, Jaguar XKR, Ferrari F12, hell, even the new 'Vette (with a few less vents) and the new Viper - those are all beautiful sports cars. This looks like something you'd see in a cheesy B movie set in the future.

What happened to the design team that produced the Z8??

I'm hoping this is just the approach for their electric vehicles and we don't see this anywhere else.


Speaking of Z8, yes it is a timeless gorgeous car.

nice render. And the wheels are very sporty, how much it would be in the market? Anyone can make a guess?

This is how the headlights could look like based on from what I can see in the current Spyshots... I know it's signaling right but is turning left.

Renders look good. I like the blue, although truly (and with little chance) I want it in the same color scheme as the concept, even though it won't have glass doors.

Would be cool to have the concept car look anyway
