Autoblog released a funny drag race comparison of a BMW i8 against a… “prehistoric military vehicle” Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG.

Not much value besides fun, but that’s (fun) expected when you’ve got some┬áspare time on the track.

Well, maybe the difference in acceleration under eco mode is something new.

The only surprising thing to me is that old Mercedes brick-looking vehicle was even designed to be fast enough to compete with an i8.

The AMG is very powerful and expensive.

The problem with the i8 is people don’t realize they are paying $150,000 for a car that has a 3 cylinder mini cooper gas engine and an electric motor from the bmw i3. How does this justify the asking price? Looks? People continuously tell others it’s made of carbon fiber when in fact it’s plastic with carbon fiber reinforcement. That’s even more lame. For that price you get a tiny screen that isn’t even touch screen. The mercedes is likely closer to is price tag as far as value. But then again, why are these idiots drag racing an SUV against BMW’s flagship priced car?

It looks “expensive” or I meant to say it looks good. LOL.

I love the I8 but man when you put it like that, I really cannot put up any argument. Everything you said is right on.
