It doesn’t happen often, but there are times when collecting cars for evaluation reveals more than a slightly jaded writer bids for.

A Beemer is a Beemer right? No, not when it has a boot full of batteries. The new hybrid models show a new direction for the German posh-barge maker. Have a look at this for gorgeous. Mind you getting in and out requires the dexterity of a schoolboy, the wallet of an old boy and the driving ability of a wildboy.

The petrol and electric engines drive rear and front wheel individually.

Together the pair accelerates the BMW i8 from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds*. And this with an enormous saving in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, as it uses just 2.1* l per 100 km and emits 49 g/km*.

Stay tuned for a test.
