Lightweight technologies, hugh? Hmmmm....carbon fiber is lightweight.

And why stuff is still made from derivatives of iron and aluminum is a mystery to me.
Yeah, also something I'd like to buy. Definitely a thought of consideration. Although with a Toyota pricing is something I highly doubt. Anything and everything branded with BMW is far from cheap. Hopefully though, they'll be willing enough to take the collaboration between the two companies into consideration and find a compromise between prices.
