BMW has managed to come up with the beautiful and extraordinary BMW i8, the model which is now the youngsters` preferred hot ride. It is also the case of a video launched by a BMW i8 “fanatic”, Marques Brownlee, who have revealed a video with the BMW`s first super hybrid.
The video doesn’t reveal the real performance of the BMW i8, so do not see it yet as another typical BMW i8 video reveal. But instead, the video is trying to bring up close the young generation and this amazing piece of technology and ingenuity. But the video speaks for itself.
To be a reminder, the BMW i8 was first unveiled last year, being manufactured at the company`s plant in Leipzig, Germany and coming with a two-door body coupe style.
The BMW i8 is quite revolutionary in terms of performance, as it packs a conventional 1.5-liter turbocharged inline three-cylinder engine, backed up by an electric motor. The overall power it produces stands at 357 horsepower and 570 Nm of torque, which makes the hybrid sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds, at a top speed of 250 km/h.
The BMW i8 was also voted the Car of the Year, by Top Gear auto magazine and is the direct competitor of other powerful hybrids like the Porsche 918 Spyder, McLaren P1 or the Ferrari LaFerrari.
