The BMW i8 is powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine and an electric motor.  It scoots from 0 to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds and boasts a top speed of 155 mph.

Both vehicles will be sold in Dubai and are expected to be popular there.  The Panamera S E-Hybrid is readily available in several countries around the globe.  The BMW i8 launches in select countries this summer.

I fell in love with BMW 635csi many years ago and still enjoy them to this day. I have a sneaky feeling I’ll feel the same about the i8 many years from now.
