^ thats cuz it looks like an unfinished design and ppl are confused as to if its a drone, a bomb, or an alien invasion....

meanwhile the 355 still "cracks necks" 15yrs later...

edit: now the McLaren P1... which is similarly as flamboyant, WILL indeed be a future classic...

^ That

The i8 turns heads because it's an outlandish looking vehicle.

Meh, can't please all the people all the time. I'd have one over a Carrera S without a second thought. Others seem to feel the same as I remember there being a pretty hefty markup on these due to demand?

Bring me an AMG GT-S or an R8 and things get more difficult.

i understand the desirability nontheless... its a "hybrid" with sharp edges and basically the first of its kind as a BMW.. its not pretty, but it has swag in a way.. similar to how the Lambo Countach has swag while lacking soft-good looks. But the Countach looks better than this i8 lol... and atleast the countach is as crazy as it looks inside-out..

this being a "green" car should look as best as possible - leave the tacky skinny-wheel hybrids to the japanese and koreans...i3 was probably a response to Merc's ever-dominant Smart For-2 ... that will become a distant memory and is clearly justified to only fuel their "i" fleet of cars across the board [X5 hybrid, 5er, etc etc]

but to each their own... this crap just doesnt look masterful enough for the $$ - seems like more a gimmick to stand out over at silicon valley.. let alone wilshere blvd.

I like the i8 as well sans the blue trim. The solid black is a cool car that looks great in person on the road. I also would rather it have a M5/6 power plant in it but I guess that defeats the point of the car.
