A ride in BMW’s cars of the future

It's still almost a year before anyone can to buy one, but TopGear has been poking its nose into the arctic testing of BMW's radical i cars. We've had a ride with the engineers on roads and a frozen lake. And? They really do feel like machines from the next generation.


The BMW i8

The BMW i8 is the cleverest sports car… in the world. It's not just about a new petrol-electric 4WD system. It uses new materials, fresh aerodynamics and a new approach to tyres and chassis. And on the road it can keep up with a M3 or 911 Carrera, using only half the fuel as it goes.
