I’ll Take One of Those, Please: BMW i8

The new BMW i8  is the second model in the automaker’s i-brand lineup (the first is the i3). The i8’s plug-in hybrid powertrain combines a turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine with a 96 kilowatt electric motor to make 362 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. Together, this gas-electric mechanical duo is capable of propelling the futuristic sports coupe from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 4.2 seconds.
