Former Liverpool and England soccer star Michael Owen recently tested out the BMW i8.

The impressions from the plug-in newbie are quite positive:

"It looks sporty and you've got the calm, cooling influence of the electric side of things. But when you turn to the sport side it's like an animal."

Owen's dream garage would consist of only conventional models like Ferrari, Bentley (for every day... you know), and Range Rover.   No Tesla yet Michael?
