The BMW i8 dropped the jaws of the journalists on hand and turned the streets of LA into a sea of curious gawkers.

Such a lot of PR and hype for a car you cannot buy. This is what is known as an uber-halo, halo car.

As proof-of-concept, I like it. Now BMW, make one that seats 5-7 and hauls my kids and groceries, doesn’t cost twice my annual income and can actually be purchased.

From the back end it looks like an angry bird.

Neat how the airflow is channeled around the tires and through various channels in the bodywork. I’d like to see more of that on affordable cars.

If it was filmed in LA, why do all the plates read Georgia? Cool cutaway version of the car.

The opening shot of the third video is a sunset over the ocean – definitely west coast anyway.
