We’ve been hearing about the BMW i8 concept for over a year.

Now, however, it’s goodbye, pipe dream, hello, checkbook.

The Bavarian marque has announced a spring 2014 delivery date for the highly desirable hybrid sports car, as well as a price tag of $135,700. 


The first plug-in hybrid from the BMW Group combines BMW TwinPower Turbo and BMW eDrive technology plus intelligent energy management for a total system output of 362 hp.

It can do 0 to 62 mph in 4.4 secondsand it gets 94 miles to the gallon.

Kind of like a porn star with a PhD…
