BMW i8: Reviewing The Car Of Tomorrow

We were promised flying cars, teleportation and hover boards. We don’t have any of that. But now we have this: The BMW i8 and it’s a future that cannot get here soon enough. My body hurt. My mind was numb. I had just spent a week in Las Vegas for the Consumer Electronics Show and was ready to fly home. But first I had to drive a brand-new 2015 BMW i8 to L.A.

Before you went to sleep it did an already insane 0-100 km/h in 3.4 seconds, but when you wake up it does that speed in 3.3 seconds without you doing a thing. Huh?
