2014 BMW i8 Review

What's New for 2014
The 2014 BMW i8 is an all-new model.
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
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
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
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.

1 -1.5 bar Boost after break in ...
The 745i was a special high-performance model offered in left-hand-drive
European markets between 1979 and 1986. It was originally fitted with a
specially prepared 3.2 L type-M30 six-cylinder engine and a turbocharger producing 10 psi of Boost, BMW engine code M102.
In 1984 the engine grew to 3.4 L, BMW engine code M106, produced 6 psi
intake pressure, and produced the same power output as the M102. These cars
were all built with automatic transmissions (although there is
documentation supporting how the ECU was modified at the factory to work
with Getrag 5 speeds) and could be ordered with exotic options such as
heated front and rear power reclining seats, auto-on aux interior gasoline
fired heaters, leather covered cellular telephones, front and rear seat
heaters, rear-armrest radio control, water buffalo hide upholstery, and
burl wood trim. The water buffalo interior model was the Executive trim
option, while the High Line trim package offered ivory leather interior
trim including a leather dash board, sun visors, headliner, and other
leather bits not offered on the Executive...
1100HP BMW E30 M3 w/ Toyota Supra Engine!
A couple of weeks ago, I have recorded this stunning blue BMW E30 M3.
Although it appears relatively standard from the outside, it actually packs
an 1100 horsepower
punch underneath its ventilated hood. It is heavily tweaked by a turbocharged 2JZ from Toyota's Supra. On E85
Ethanol it will producing around the 1100HP! Never have seen something
before, it's ridiculous fast on the track!
