BMW has unveiled their i8 Concept Spyder. It's absolutely incredible.

They say the i8 represents a vision of the future where intelligent thinking, advanced materials and innovative construction techniques fuse together to create a high performance roadster that is outstandingly efficient and environmentally aware. It possesses, they claim, the performance of a sports car with the consumption of a city car. It doesn't look too shabby either.

Strictly a two-seater it boasts on-board equipment including a pair of electric scooters, housed under a transparent tailgate. It makes 406lb ft of torque, which pushes it from 0-62mph in 5.0 seconds and a top speed of 155mph. Plus it can do 20 miles of 4-wheel-drive on the battery alone. Want. Need.
