It's a BEAUTIFUL car. It's an expensive car. It LOOKS fast. But, 4.9 in today's standards is a joke.

I have two cars that cost about $100k each. I'm in the market for this car and I've told my dealer that depending on price, I will buy one. BUT, I really could care less about mileage.

BMW had a chance to make an SLS competitor. What did they do? Make a VOLT "sports car". That's my beef with this car. I don't care if it's a proof of concept for BMW's i brand. I'm not in the market for an i3 and I could care less about it. They need something to be their halo. This is not a halo.
BMW desperately needs a SLS or R8 competitor and this ain't it.
