The underlying beauty of this engine is that it is an integral part of the i8 progressive sports car and with testing commencing in stealth prototypes - completely black body for driving to BMW facilities under the cover of darkness, one tester put a batman logo on the rear.
With the three cylinder combined with the electric motor The i8 is now running faster than the current M3. Of course this is achieved by a lot of factors such as the lightweight body etc... But it proves that we mean business with the BMW i8. Of course testing continues but we are progressing full speed ahead to deliver a car that is groundbreaking in everyway, The i8 brings everything that BMW stands for but applies this to a revolutionary new drive concept.
The BMW i8 will be THE car of 2014.
