Australian T3 - - HOT 100 -

As far as planet-sav­ing cars go, BMW has nailed it. Not only does the BMW i8 look like a shock­ingly beau­ti­ful con­cept that some­how made it be­yond the draw­ing board, it also has sen­sa­tional su­per­car-es­que per­for­mance, with a 0-100 of just over 4 sec­onds. It’s green too, with an ef­fi­cient petrol/elec­tric en­gine and light­weight, aero­dy­namic body promis­ing 48km/l. It’s packed with smart fea­tures too, such as laser LED head­lights – no, re­ally. It’s gen­uinely a step in the right di­rec­tion for the mo­tor­ing in­dus­try; less oil-de­pen­dent, while still re­main­ing fast and cool (and look­ing it). $323,000, BMW.COM.AU, OUT NOW
