Thumbs up My Protonic Blue i8 & (w/ Lamboghini Huracan sidekick)

     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Took delivery of my BMW i8 (and Huracan finally this weekend).

The car is the one of the most unique BMWs ever made and I am loving every minute of it.

My first vlog in a new series:



Took this picture last night:

Looking forward to sharing my experience and learning from the crew here. I am now at about 600 miles and will do a 1000 mi review for sure.

Great taste, I love the combo!

Btw. before you start telling everyone to listen to the 'real' sound on the outside (like I did) remember that there's a speaker with active sound on the outside too.
It's connected to the hidden exhaust on the left side of the real exhaust.

I'm pre-med! Hopefully, I can have similar toys as you once I'm done!!!

Love the color choices on both cars! I always said if I'm ever lucky enough to buy a Lambo I would want it in RED, because you don't ever see a red lambo.

I love the last picture!

Do you have CA plates by any chance. Saw this exact combo parked by St.Regis a few weeks back. Wondering if it was yours.
Either way, great car.
Congrats and enjoy!!!

I like the i8 but I cannot understand how anyone can say it is futuristic looking or aggressive next to any lamborghini, Ferrari, mclaren... My eyes go immediately to the huracan in that pic

Thanks mate. Rides are headed back now. Both Lambos are inbound. Sucks the weather is about to change.

Heheh.. I know. There is still some real sound and I am sure its only a matter of time before someone makes a custom exhaust for the i8

Awesome on Pre-Med. BTW, yes, the color (Rosso Mars) is pretty rare on Lambos and certainly when compared to Ferraris (over 80% of every Ferrari ever made is RED )

More coming on the Huracan once it makes it home.

Thanks everyone for the well wishes... I honestly love the new i8 and keep finding new things everyday.
