Continuing the of the i3, the i8 is the second model in the “i” lineup of BMW cars.

But the i8 coupe will likely twice as much as the i3, perhaps and it appeals to a different audience—those who fast performance in a light car the bulk and fuel consumption of a V-8 or engine fitted with turbochargers.
