i8: Chariot of the Gods

Took this shot a week ago on Angeles Crest Highway in Southern California. Almost decided against going up into the San Gabriel Mountains due to the cloudy weather at lower elevation, but when I got above the clouds, the views were spectacular. I'm no professional photographer, but I do like the way the clouds almost mirror the design of the i8 with my Crystal White Pearl Metallic with Frozen Grey color scheme.

700 miles this weekend. I killed many bugs. I'm unapologetic.
I see 3 little rings on the car, how was it on the ring?
Does it do full laps without running low on battery?

What tyres did you use?

I have not had this car on the 'Ring. I have driven the 'Ring in a different BMW.

I have had this car on Laguna Seca, and Thunderhill racetracks. Street tires. It'll do 2 or 3 laps with battery assistance, then it's all about 1.5L of gas power.

A fellow neighbor picked up a roadster and I'll be complete honest- it's definitely more boring than the coupe.

Perhaps if it were a hard top- but the pillars really are missed especially in person. The soft top just kills the design for me

Didnít affect the tyre grip since they are asymmetrical rather than directional... it was just a case of swapping the rear alloys over, the outside edge remained outside.

You may have already noticed and had them swapped around of course but like I said, lovely car!

I was worried about the brake cooling, don’t the turbine alloys direct air into the brakes?

Yes, and also the air curtain effect.

The standard (no cost, narrow) wheels have the optimal weight and air curtain effect though. But less grip.
