While filming an upcoming episode of The Smoking Tire, an unusual vehicle appeared on scene.

The unsuspecting BMW i8 (still dressed in full blue swirly camo) immediately became the center of attention and the test driver didn't seem too keen on being caught on film.

As the video shows, upon noticing the rolling cameras, the BMW i8 driver took it upon himself to put on a bit of a show (or flee the scene).

Rather than just roll out of view, the i8 driver decided to put the hammer down, which oddly enough reveals something we've not yet heard from the i8: the roar of its exhaust.

So, as a note to test drivers caught on film in the future, don't hammer it in haste, as you just might end up revealing more than you or the automaker had hoped.
