    • No M version of the BMW i8 - Getting horsepower boost instead and expected to cost over $130k

      No M version of the BMW i8 is coming. Kind of disappointing as it would be nice to finally have a halo M car or BMW supercar so to speak. The 1.5 liter turbo 3 cylinder has been upped to 223 horsepower and 295 pound-feet or torque. The total horsepower rating is now 393 horses and 406 lb-ft of torque. That is more like it! The car will also be switchable from front, to rear, to all wheel drive at the drivers discretion. Imagine using all wheel drive only from a stop for example.

      Tuning the turbo powerplant should prove to be fun and this car with its proposed 3,125 pound curb weight may prove to be a lot of fun to drive.
