YEA RIGHT!

I'd say at least $100k.

Those fully glass doors alone are $10k. lol

This car must be a bitch to wash.
If I was to own it, I would never bring it through a car wash. I don't think it would make it through with that body and pretty much exposed rear end.

Love the design.

Coolchu...I wish it was $60-$70k. I would definitely pick one up for that price.

I'm skeptical myself, though they sure seem to be trying to convince us by putting camoflage all over a vehicle that looks very much like the VED concept car. I guess with a high enough MSRP it would be possible.

4.8 0-62? It's slower than the M3?

WTF, BMW?

uuuuhmmmm..... And? Your point is? Didn't read anywhere that this is sopposed to be faster....

Try to tell the M3 to drive 50km on nothing but it's battery. Let's see who is faster.....

Looks good at this stage. Would prefer it without the +2 seats and just have more space in the trunk/boot etc.

M Version? there won't be an M version, this is a eco friendly car! Different target market tham M buyers.

and with only 5K-10K being produced, expect around $100K+ price
I mean the Z4 is up around $65K with the same 0-60 time, so for them to make a car that is bigger and can do it while also able to get 75 mpg and drive 30 miles on electric alone, yeah that would be a $35K+ premium.

Sooo... M version anyone? I think a car that looks that good damn well deserves a more powerful engine.

car looks menacing, aside from the little tires, which i'm sure they need to boost MPG

i predict though once it's approved for sale in the US, the socialist safety nannies will have added a few inches of ride height and some other "safety" crap

awesome. love the shape. Anyone remember that BMW vastly understates 0-62? So I expect 4.5 or 4.2 S.

BMW still embraces the 75 MPG number, that is crazy, I hope it can really achieve that. Love the doors

I think I'll keep my 11mpg M3 and continue to laugh at the idiot Greens in their Prii(Prius plural) and Smart for Twos.
