R8 E-Tron laps 'Ring in 8:09 will the BMW i8 come close?

Respectable time for a All Electric car. Even more considering it weighs substantially more than the R8 V8 which laps the ring in 8:05 . The question is will the i8 even come close?

Yes the i8 is likely to beat it, if it really weighs 1400 kg as claimed.

I've never met a single person that thinks the R8 looks bad. How can you think that is not good looking?
