On the other hand, this would have been an epic way to unveil the M8.
I agree, the i8 will probably have a very timeless design, as there is really nothing in the market with a concept car like design like it (maybe NSX). I only wished they made the powertrain more powerful.

We might see a response from Mercedes since the CEO on this side might be leaving soon

How self indulgent of BMW. How many consumers will even get the point they are trying to communicate. And more than likely these won't see much airtime.

They may not know who he is, specifically, but they can tell this gent is from Mercedes and pretty high level, since he has a chauffeur.

What a cool CEO.

Munich is crying out for such a leadership. Ironic that the youngest ever CEO is staid and conservative while this old timer kept it fresh and took a company from making taxis, limos and commercial vehicles to making cool, desirable cars people admire.
