FULL REVIEW BMW I8 FIRST US DRIVE
ANCHOR: MILESTONES IN THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY ARE MARKED BY INVENTIONS. THINGS LIKE THE DIESEL ENGINE, THE FIRST SPORTS CAR, THE FIRST SEAT BELT, THE FIRST AIRBAG AND I AM SURE YOU CAN NAME MANY MORE. NIK MILES OUR AUTOMOTIVE EXPERT WAS ONE OF ONLY 20 JOURNALISTS TO DRIVE THE LATEST MILESTONE IN THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY GOOD MORNING NIK. NIK ON CAM: WELL THANKS AND GOOD MORNING GUYS THIS IS THE NEW BMW I8. IT IS THE MOST SIGNIFICANT CAR IN THE COMPANIES 98 YEAR HISTORY IT IS CLEARLY A GAME CHANGER, THIS IS THE BEST CAR I HAVE DRIVEN IN THE LAST 60 MONTHS. BUT THERE ARE TWO THINGS I DON'T LIKE ABOUT YOUR I8 BMW. I DON'T OWN ONE AND IT IS OUT OF MY PRICE RANGE. BUT BMW YOU HAD ME AT I8 NIK VO: BEFORE BMW DESIGNED THE NEW I8 THEY TOOK A LONG LOOK AT THEIR OWN EXISTENCE. SOME OF THE QUESTIONS THEY ARMED THEMSELVES WERE: WHO ARE ARE WE, WHY DO WE EXIST AND WHAT IS OUR PURPOSE. AFTER SOME REFLECTION THE ANSWERS CAME IN THE FORM OF THE WORLD'S FIRST PLUG IN HYBRID ELECTRIC SUPER CAR. THE I8 IS INNOVATIVE AND NOVEL APPROACH TO TRANSPORTATION PROBLEMS. IT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT LAUNCH IN RECENT HISTORY AND SHOWS THE COMPANYS PATH FORWARD WILL BE INVESTING HEAVILY IN HYBRID AND PLUG IN HYBRIDS. OFFICIALLY IT GOES 0-60 IN 4.2 SECONDS BUT IN MY UN SCIENTIFIC TEST I DID IT UNDER 4 SECONDS. IT HAS THE TWO ENGINES. AN ELECTRIC IN THE FRONT AND A 3 CYLINDER turbo GAS ENGINE IN THE BACK GIVING IT AWD, 357 TOTAL HP, A 22 MILES RANGE ON ELECTRICITY ALONE AND AN UNOFFICIAL FUEL CONSUMPTION OFUP TO 94 MPGE THE STUNNING DESIGN EXTERIOR IS DESIGNED FROM A DROP OF WATER AND EVERY ELEMENT SEEN HAS A REAL FUNCTION TO THE CAR. THE FENDERS AND BUMBERS ARE THERMO TREATED PLASTIC AND THE ROOF IS MADE OUT OF RECYCLED CARBON FIBER LEFT OVER FROM THE SHELL. IN ELECTRIC DRIVING MODE THE MAXIMUM SPEED IS 75 MPH WITH A RANGE AROUND 20 MILES. THE CAR CAN BE PLUGGED IN AND CHARGED AT HOME TAKING 3.5 HOURS TO REPLENISH WITH A 110 VOLT SYSTEM OR ONLY 1.5 HOURS WITH A 240 VOLT SYSTEM. AND LIKE ANY GOOD HYBRID THE CAR REGAINS POWER WITH ITS REGENERATIVE BRAKES. THE BATTERY CAN ALSO BE RECHARGED WHEN THE ENGINE IS RUNNING YOU WILL RECOGNIZE IT AS A BMW ON THE INSIDE BUT WITH SOME AMAZING GAUGE GRAPHICS AND A FEW UNIQUE CONTROLS. NIK ON CAM. IF YOU WANT TO BUY YOURSELF A BMW I8 I SUGGEST YOU GO TO EVERY BMW DEALER THAT SELLS ONE, PUT YOURSELF ON A COMFY CHAIR AND WAITY. IT WILL BE A WHILE. I AM NIK MILES

$1,000,000 Ferrari Restoration Detail
This Ferrari is a good friend and customers car that was flown in the night before from the UK. It needed a bit of work to get it looking presentable again, and after a 2 day restoration... shouldn't need anything more than layers of sealant and wax for the rest of its life. (if cleaned and maintained properly in the future) This video shows you what I'm thinking about as I restore a $1 million car, and how understanding the interaction between different materials will effect the outcome of your work. The purpose of this video is not about "step by step" demonstration, but rather a glimpse of what professional detailers think about when working on extremely rare cars. Thanks for watching and send me an email if you have any questions. larry@ammonyc.com -Larry

2014 BMW M5 Competition vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S Model! - Head 2 Head Ep. 44
On this episode of Head 2 Head Jonny Lieberman is joined by Mike Shaffer and two extremely potent hyper sedans, the 2014 BMW M5 Competition and the 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S Model. Between the two of them, these two mighty Germans produce 1152horsepower and 1092 pound-feet of torque. On paper. After a day of horsing around/testing Shaffer and Lieberman grow suspicious of each twin-turbo V-8's actual output. So, they take them to the Dyno gurus at K&N engineering to learn what's what. The results very well may shock and amaze you. However, the boys come to the conclusion that numbers are only exactly that: only numbers, and numbers only matter so much. One true test of a super sedan is how it handles a twisting stretch of tarmac. The other is how much you yearn for the car after you've walked away from it. How much the keys itch in your pocket. While the results are definitive, this Head 2 Head is much closer than most. Have a watch! Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=motortrend Facebook - http://facebook.com/motortrendmag Twitter - http://twitter.com/motortrend Google+ - https://plus.google.com/1018679678590...

2014 BMW i8 Review
Subscribe : http://www.youtube.com/user/Auto1News?sub_confirmation=1 What's New for 2014 The 2014 BMW i8 is an all-new model. Introduction Based on the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept car shown a few years ago, the 2014 BMW i8 represents the German automaker's vision of a high-performance plug-in hybrid. If this is what the future looks like, sign us up. Zero to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds? A full charge in three hours from a regular garage outlet? Approximately 95 mpg? Yes, please. For the i8, BMW chops its classic 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine formula in half. The i8 uses a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline three-cylinder paired with an electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack. The three-cylinder drives the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission, while the electric motor powers the front wheels through a two-speed automatic. The engine and electric motor combine for 362 horsepower, 420 pound-feet of torque and all-wheel-drive performance, all integrated into a chassis that is 10 pounds lighter and 1.5 inches longer than the 3 Series. The i8 also delivers stellar handling thanks to 50/50 weight distribution and a low, centrally mounted battery pack, although standard 20-inch wheels seem like a suspect choice for maximizing corner-to-corner performance. BMW says the i8 can also travel 22 miles and reach a top speed of 75 mph on electrons alone. Uncorked with the gasoline engine in the lead, it will reach a top speed of 155 mph. Sounds like a pretty good future to us. Lightweight construction helps bring lofty performance within reach, notably an aluminum chassis, chemically hardened glass (similar to that used in smartphones) and extensive use of carbon-fiber-reinforced panels within the 2+2 passenger cabin. Those plus-2 rear seats are small, however, smaller than even a Porsche 911's, and are best considered auxiliary luggage space. Even settling into the front seats requires some practice given its unique scissor-lift-style doors. We drove a recent i8 prototype and found the i8's easy thrust in all-electric mode a close match for the Tesla Model S. In its Sport mode (there are also Comfort and Eco Pro settings), the i8 further awakens, feeling light, agile and averse to body roll. The hybrid never quite overwhelms with acceleration, but it also never feels winded, the electric motor's torque nicely covering for the small turbo as the latter winds up to deliver its power contribution. Whatever the i8 lacks in competitive performance, it won't lack for style. Its low-slung profile is punctuated by standard U-shaped LED headlights. You can even order the i8 with laser headlights where regulations allow (sorry, U.S. shoppers). Inside, a multitiered and layered cockpit design uses recycled materials and naturally treated leather for upholstery and panel surfaces Like the smaller i3 electric car, the i8 will offer three trim levels -- Mega, Giga and Tera -- all with varying degrees of sport and luxury appointments. The 2014 BMW i8 arrives in the spring and starts around $136,000. That's well above its most obvious target, the Tesla Model S, and that kind of money also buys a lot of Porsche 911. Performance aficionados won't likely be swayed and may even look across the BMW lineup to the "M" cars. But for the hybrid buyer seeking power, performance and efficiency through a lower profile, the 2014 BMW i8 presents a unique choice. Check back for more information on the 2014 BMW i8, including specs, driving impressions and buying advice as it becomes available.
