Masterfully walks both sides of the automotive spectrum, punchy powertrain, flashy styling. �€" Car and Driver, February 2015 Test-driving the i8 in Los Angeles, Car and Driver went on to describe the experience of being behind the wheel of this unique hybrid supercar: In EV mode, the i8 is hushed. Removing sound and vibration when you're impeded by commuters brings some peace to the whole experience. The 129-hp motor between the front wheels tugs the i8 along with 184 pound-feet of torque up to 75 mph. A lithium-ion battery pack that looks like a giant Lego block sits between the seats in the carbon-fiber structure. ... push the gear selector into sport mode to call upon the full 357 horsepower, changing the character of the i8. In sport, the gauges glow red, a tachometer appears in the cluster, and the 1.5-liter three-cylinder turbo aided by an 11-hp electric motor kicks to life, stays lit, and remains at the ready. If you never plug the i8 in to recharge, keeping the engine in sport mode replenishes the battery pack. In comfort or eco-pro modes, the gas engine switches on and off depending on acceleration demands. As long as the three-cylinder is running, the car's two electric motors, two transmissions, and one engine work together in harmony. There's no surging, no turbo lag, just uninterrupted, linear thrust. It's magic when a tiny 1.5-liter eating 22 psi of boost behaves like an engine three times its size. Like-priced sports cars can't match the i8's efficiency, nor do they offer the multiple personalities of the i8. You'd have to look to the Porsche 918 Spyder to find something analogous....

The car shows just 18,602 miles, fewer than 2,700 miles per year on average since new. The car's extensive list of original equipment is available from mdecoder.com at: https://www.mdecoder.com/decode/wby2z2c58fv392978 The condition is exceptional, the result of fastidious owner-care and commitment to proper maintenance. It could easily be mistaken for brand new. The car's exterior paint and trim is free of signs of wear. The sculpted body panels show no damage. The graphite gray color is accented with gloss black on several surfaces and tasteful bright blue flashes on trim, notably on the bodysides, rear panel, and front grille. Blue is the color BMW chose to identify its eDrive vehicles. All BMW roundel logos on the car are surrounded by a subtle border in the same blue color. Tinted cabin glass and all lighting lenses-including LED lighting front and rear-are clear and unmarred. Model-specific 20-inch multi-split-spoke wheels with BMW-logo center caps wear Pirelli® P Zero 215/45 tires. Cross-drilled brake rotors can be seen between the wheel openings. The upward-tilting cabin doors are in keeping with the i8's unique design and build, and their visible carbon-fiber composite structure shows this is anything-but-superfici
