Recently, DRIVE Magazine released video from its test of the BMW i8 both on the road and at the track.  Here's the video description:

The BMW i8 is something really different to anything we 've driven in the past. In order to understand it we drove it for as long as we could, not only on the road but also on the best greek track, Serres Racing Circuit.

It is definitely a great gadget, but can it really be an alternative to the more traditional sports cars that are available at the same price?

The conclusion? It's decent on the track and it's one of only a few cars you could drive on the track until the fuel runs out, then drive home in electric mode.

DRIVE was impressed with the i8, both on and off the track.
