The NSX resembles the i8...it came out after. I said this when the NSX was shown and people where like , but it does, and the i8/Vision EfficientDynamics was shown long before the new NSX concept @ the last motor show

This is one of the nicest designs lately, and by far the most appealing electric car ever.
Knowing how great Bimmers usually are, this is so far the only car that can persuade me to go Eco-friendly. The Fisker Karma tickled me just a little bit but this one would get me to go all the way
I wonder how far beyond the 100K mark the coupe is going to be ...

With all these hybrid supercars concepts being made by various car companies I like the Lexus LF-LC the most. The Lexus looks fantastic on the outside as well as the inside.

Audi made a gas powered car electric with no effort to make it as practical and efficient as possible. Not even in the same boat.

This is ground up hybrid, the i3 is all electric.

Audi and others are playing catchup to BMWi.

Wait until the fuel cell versions come... can run on hydrogen or natural gas and no longer use precious metals- all ceramics! There is a certain model that was spied running this system now

Do not compared a rehased lambo to this innovative sporty and futuristic car.

It kinda looks like it needs a splitter or lower airdam to balance it out, the nose seems really high off the ground.

The pictures reveal so much detail including how the production i8 will look once the concept glass doors are replaced by conventional doors without losing the unique butterfly wing operation. As stated before the i8 Spyder retains the strong aerodynamic butresses of the Coupe but follows function by forming the overhead protection safety system, and having I have discussed previously.

BMW are very much thinking of adding the i8 Spyder to production alongside the regular i8 to enhance its overall mission statement - As The Most progressive Sports car. Now you can have a better understanding of both the i8's appearance and how they have retained that futuristic essence of the concept and are taking it right through to production.

Stay posted for further BMW news for the Beijing Autoshow this April.
Amazing, BMW have done it again. This car will change everything

Will reserve judgement for production model. Some things I like, but I'm not a fan of the back end:

Scott,

please, please tell those guys that there is nothing wrong with having a s65 engine in that car or making an ///M version of the i8. You guys can call it ///Mi8.

I actually don't. I think the NSX concept is pretty bad. It doesn't even like the old NSX which is still hot. I see no NSX in that "NSX" concept. Oh well, sad but we will see what Honda will bring us in the future.

On the other hand, BMW should... M One......

That's a beauty! Looks a little "busy", though with all those lines - especially the back. Would be a pain to wash LOL!

Can someone point out who designed this car and what else have they designed? Seems like such a departure from the typical BMW design cues (other than the M1/Homage that is). Similarities are stunning.
