I wonder how they got the cars there. I work and live within 3 miles of where most of those photos were taken and there are potholes literally everywhere. The rims on the i8 def do not look like they hold up to these potholes. I have 19" wheels and have replaced 3/4 wheels in the short 1.5 years I have had them.

Saw them setting up to display these again today right off of Michigan Ave. On Wacker Dr. around 12:30. They had several trucks and were unloading them with police presence. They might still be there so if you're near by check it out.

There's a YouTube video now, guy thrashing it on the track, sounds a bit rubbish compared to the roar from my 35i, I'll stick with that until petrol prices force my hand (never!! Lol) just do a YouTube search for sdrive28i
