    Bmw i8

    Saw one of these up close today, and although I am not a huge BMW fan I was impressed! MSRP is around 140K, so I wonder how it will compare to the new NSX? 427 HP Hybrid is pretty impressive!

    Aesthetically it looks better than the NSX imho.

    There isn't much in life that offends me, but that fake engine noise...

    Question Saw a grey-blue I8 at

    Grayson BMW dealership in Knoxville, TN, when we picked up a real nice 46 K mile 2008 TL Type S last month.

    Pretty radical design.

    Pretty radical price.

    I like the flying buttress c pillars, but that design is so busy that it couldn't stop and take time to reconsider.
