To find out how thirty years of evolution has changed the BMW supercar, Auto Express we took along a classic M1 to meet the new i8 at the Auto Express test track. The BMW i8 features a 1.5-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol from the MINI Cooper driving the rear wheels, while an electric motor drives the front. Under the engine cover of the M1 is something altogether much more traditional: a 3.5-litre six-cylinder unit putting out 277bhp and 330Nm of torque. This compares to 357bhp … CONTINUED
U.S. electric carmaker Tesla Motors is in talks with Germany’s BMW over a possible alliance in batteries and light-weight components, Tesla’s Chief Executive Elon Musk told German weekly Der Spiegel.
In an interview published on Sunday, Musk described BMW’s production of carbon fibre reinforced car body parts as “interesting” and “relatively cost efficient.”

Scott Hughes is the first owner of the amazing BMW i8 in South Carolina. He gave us full access to the car and sat down for an interview of his thoughts on it.

Photos and VLOG from a new BMW i8 (and Lamborghini Huracan in same week) owner!
The BMW i3 gets a custom set of wheels from PUR, which may enhance the styling of the full electric car, but of course potentially at the expense of reduced range.
EVO takes the BMW i8 out against the R8 and 911.
Can the i8 possibly keep up against these sports car icons? Read on…
Photoshoot of some of BMW’s most exclusive (and expensive) cars produced to date – the BMW i8 and Z8. And one lucky owner owns both.
Automobile has posted what it thinks are details behind the BMW i8S, a supercar that will celebrate BMW’s 100th anniversary in 2016.
In 2016, BMW turns 100. There will be plenty to celebrate in that centenary year, including the first fuel-cell-powered BMW (based on the 5 Series GT) as well as the first model co-developed with Toyota, namely the Z4 replacement. With the passing of that milestone, BMW will launch a new green supercar — aptly codenamed M100. Almost certain be badged i8S, the … CONTINUED
Congratulations to Mike, an already lucky guy who owns a BMW M1, who has now added the i8 to his garage.
German tuning firm, Manhart, has posted teasers of its supposed upcoming BMW i8. Though these are just photoshopped images for now, it appears that they plan to maintain the factory exterior while adding bright dashes of paints on some accent pieces, as well as aftermarket wheels and lowering the suspension.
The more important question is what, if any, performance modification plans the tuner has for the i8. That should be answered in time.
BIMMERPOST member and i8 owner shares some tips and observations after 880 miles with the car.
To most, the BMW i8 already features a highly stylized modern design, but German Special Customs, a designer of aftermarket exteriors and interiors, thinks that they can do better. They’ve released these renderings of their planned “iTron” kit for the i8.
Jalopnik scores the BMW i8 a 92/100 in their latest review. Their score composite:
Their wrap-up: On performance and price, the i8 technically competes with cars like the Audi R8, Porsche 911, Mercedes-AMG GT, Corvette, and others of that ilk. But in the real world, this is like flying an F22 Raptor in 1945. Compared to everything else in its class, the i8 feels like … CONTINUED
