BMW i8 Spyder

By Jason Bacchetta on April 2, 2012

Could this beauty be what the future holds for the automotive industry? We sure hope so.

For starters, the BMW i8 Spyder sports a 131 hp electric motor pushing the front wheels while a 223 hp turbocharged gas three-cylinder powers the rear. This unique combination allows for front-wheel, rear-wheel, or all-wheel drive – your choice. Efficiency is an understatement, boasting 78 mpg, and speed is plentiful, clocking 0-62 mph in five seconds with a top speed of 155 mph.

Throw in a two-section folding roof, upward-opening doors, and two electric scooters under the rear glass panel… then you’ve got yourself a machine. Even if it is still just a concept.
