This anonymous clan of slack-jawed troglodytes has cost me the election, and yet if I were to have them killed, I would be the one to go to jail. That's democracy for you. - C Montgomery Burns.

That's better. However, it costs more than a 911 and doesn't corner as well so I'm not sure of its intended role. Commuter? Too impractically shaped. Posing on the high street? Getting warmer now I think...

C'mon...this is exciting....this alone.....

everything works in perfect harmony to deliver a blisteringly smooth 4.4-second 0-62mph time

.....but with 135mpg economy and 49g/km CO2 emissions. Itís a definite game-changer,

I'm a fan but I'm still not sure what is the best use for the car. The Tesla S is a competitive luxury sedan. The i3 is a straight up commuter. What's the i8 for?

One thing I will say about the looks.
Remember what it must have been like when the Lamborghini Countach started arriving on suburban streets - like something had landed from outer space.
The i8 is the first car in many years that would cause a similar reaction...it looks like the future.

For some people, that will be enough.

Personally at the price point I'd pick a GT3 any day of the week, even with the engine fire issue hanging over its head.

But if I had a bottomless pit of cash, I'd get an i8 as well.

It looks like the past to me, like a bad mix of the M1 and a Subaru SVX. Going by the pics if I saw it on the street I'd think it was a concept car from the 80's that never got released.

This is the BMW that will turn heads. The i8 is ugly.
