1.5 Inline -3
BMW's i8 is a showcase of futuristic technology coming from Munich. The scissor doors, smooth lines and beautiful BMW Neso interior make it a gorgeous car inside and out. An electric motor powers the front wheels, while a 1.5 liter 3-cylinder provides 228 horsepower in the rear to give the i8 a combined 357 horsepower and 420lb-ft of torque through all wheel drive. That gets the car sprinting to 60mph in 4.2 seconds.
Like its younger sibling, the BMW i3, the i8 has a Carbon Reinforced Plastic tub which helps increase chassis strength and safety for all four passengers inside.
