2015 BMW i8 Racetrack Review: The Ultimate Hybrid Racing Machine?

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2015 BMW i8 is a fast and sexy plugin hybrid. But how will the car perform on the racetrack in the capable hands of Justin Wils…


Chris Juarez says:

The race car driver is the sensible one suggesting you lease this thing.
It has no luggage room. Other than the tiny back seats. The front cowl
doesn’t open and the rear is completely occupied by the gas engine. This
is crazy. Over 136G’s US for this???
Get a used Ferrari F430 for this price (in manual to boot!)
Or if you really want a new car, and that’s truly electric (with tons of
room inside to carry people and luggage) the Tesla Model S.
Good publicity stunt BMW. :-)

Brian Catnut says:

another pig ugly BMW did someone put ugly pills in the designers coffee ?

Jonathan Harper says:

i8 engine is not in any way “identical” to the motor in the Mini Cooper @

Yippie says:

Demolished the track record? Nathan gets 1:10 in an Audi S4, which may very
well be a slower car than the BMW I8 around the track, and a Pro gets 1:06
in the BMW. Then you guys try to compare them and act like it’s amazing?
Sorry, but I don’t get it. It might be a hybrid but its a sports car. I
think it just goes to show just how well Nathan did in that S4. Why not
settle it and let Nathan drive it around the track and take it 0-60 as

OG Jawdinz says:

where my fren fries says:

Get that black shit off the car that Color scheme is what makes it ugly 

CanadaCraig says:

It doesn’t seem all that impressive – to be honest. If you paid $5,000 for
a pair of shoes – wouldn’t you except them to have hovering capabilities? I
see no reason whatsoever to buy this car over a new Stingray.

fake exhaust not in the cabin because the engine sounds so bad reminds me
of the type of woman that just fakes it cause he aint big enough anyway

headgamer4297 says:

+The Fast Lane Car I have seen you drive lots of old and new vehicles but I
never seen you test drive the 2003-05 Mercury Marauder, so I was wondering
if you could do so.

C3ByAx says:

I like the channel guys but I feel like you never give me a good look at

The BMW i8 is a joke the electric motor on has 131HP ,ha
And 23 miles of electric range , a Nissan leaf beats this car , and it’s
extremely over priced, guys do tesla model s p85 VS a BMW i8 please , the
tesla owns the electric car market .

It really is a beautiful car but honestly I think that the Porsche 918 is
the engineering miracle. You guys have to test it!

Bazil Prosianos says:

velocity211 says:

tom cruise actually drove a futuristic lexus in minority report

Jorge Nieto says:

Ugliest bmw ever 

Marty Swanson says:

The “artificial” exhaust sounds very similar to the W12 (Bently) & W16
(Veyron) engines.

theaviator06 says:

Would probably have to go with a Cayman GTS or Corvette. Fun review
though! Would be interested in seeing Justin drive that Audi S4.
