BMW i8 - Exhaust/Interior Sound Feature Video

Hey guys - I film high quality exhaust/intake sound videos so I was up for a new challenge with the i8. My first hybrid but definitely not my first supercar! I also played with some TopGear style editing this time.



BONUS: Let's see how the i8 launches in the snow with snow tires. It's cool to see the electrically driven front wheels spin first, lose grip, and send power to the rear gas engine.

Interesting to hear a different version of the i8's exterior exhaust notes. Thanks for putting together and for sharing the excellent videos!

No problem, glad you enjoyed it!

I thoroughly enjoyed driving it, lots of torque at any speed. Plus the attention it gets is nearly comical. I've been around many supercars (watch some of my other videos). While filming this one, some guy flew by, slammed on the brakes, reversed, and busted out his phone and took a bunch of pics. Granted, we did have the doors open and it looked like a commercial video shoot but so did the other supercars I've filmed.
