You'll Eat It Right Up: 2015 BMW i8

Once merely a concept car relegated to the drawing board, the 2015 BMW i8 has finally been ushered into the realm of reality.  The result?  We at Rick Hendrick BMW Charleston are wide-eyed and drooling over this latest marvel from our mutually-preferred German automaker.

The i8 is a seamless blend of stunning design, power and sustainability.  It offers a unique, hybrid drivetrain that features a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline three-cylinder to power the rear wheels, and an electric motor to fuel the front.  All told, the i8's powertrain can churn out 357 ponies and 420 pound-feet of torque.

Combine the brand's legendary all-wheel-drive sport performance with the fuel economy of an electric, and you have the i8.  A powerful idea executed into existence by the brilliant minds at BMW.  Check out the i8 in the TV spot below:

If this is the first time you've seen this futuristic beaut, we imagine your jaw likely popped open like the i8's butterfly doors; the sculpture of this car is simply immaculate.  To learn more, or to see or test drive any other BMW models in our current inventory, drop by our dealership, proudly serving the greater Charleston, SC region.
