I think the color scheme is reminding you of Bijan's Veyron.

Awesome ! I'm drooling !!! Guru level. The Bugatti is not close enough for compare. Way to go for tuning the rims, though they are all just rendering, right?

I think it'll take people a while Scott to accept the i8.

It is trying to carve itself a new category and generally people, as history would tell us over past 6000+ years, don't often embrace new belief systems smoothly, without resistance, without question, and without fighting sometimes

I'm sure it's category and purpose will become clear, what exactly it is I don't know, it's a very fast nimble road car but not a track car, so does it fit being called a sports car? It doesn't fit what many would call a hybrid either. Applause to BMW for making it though.

Scott,

I'm not sure what you meant. Are u saying that it defeats the whole purpose of the car with heavy weights of wide body + big rims...etc. ?? Becos the car was meant to be lightweight to be so energy efficient & nimble...

Agreed! That's what it should look like and it'd be nice to have a V8 in it.

All I have to say is, thank you.

You got rid of the gimmicky blue accents (they don't belong on any car, let alone a 100,000 dollar+ BMW), and gave the car a color option outside of silver, grey and blue. Oh I guess there's white too.

BMW are you seeing this????
