BMW i8 versus M4 - track battle
Autocar recently set a BMW i8 against a BMW M4 on the track to see which is faster and more fun to drive. Similar tests were done by many other media outets too, which makes us think that this is some kind of marketing campaign put on by BMW in the UK.
The M4, without a doubt, is the more powerful car with similar weight, but is way faster. However, the pace of the i8 wasn't too far off.
The unique i8 was very fun to drive, eclipsing a little bit of an advantage here against the M4.
