BMW i8 A Sportscar From The Future
This car has made the world sit up and check this out for a number of reasons. One is the styling that is not beautiful in all traditional sense but a car that comes straight out of some science fiction movie. Be it traffic loaded city roads or the fast highways, when you are driving this car, the driver in the car next to you will certainly give you a thumbs up and the onlookers will make effort to catch a glimpse. Another crucial reason why the world is talking about this car is the stuff under the hood i.e. the hybrid set-up. The 1.5L turbocharged produces 228bhp and 320Nm of torque and before you laugh at its engine capacity, let me tell you that the 7.1 kWh electric motor adds 129bhp and 270Nm of torque totaling the value to 362bhp and 570Nm of torque. Paired with the proficient 6-speed automatic gearbox, the car sprints from 0-100kmph in just 4.4 seconds gaining the top speed of 250kmph. When both the modes are used, it can deliver an excellent mileage of 47kmpl. The internals are also breathtaking and revolutionary in every sense with each and every unit centered towards the driver. Despite it's all the advantages and the way this eco-friendly car is being advertised, it is still an expensive (Rs. 2.40 crore on road) piece of machine to buy in India.
