This is BMW's Spyder version of its i8 Hybrid concept, and it looks even more appetizing than the coupe version in my opinion. With the absence of those fantasy glass doors that we used to see on the coupe, this sypder version looks closer to the production phase, which is a good thing.

Power is provided by a hybrid powertrain featuring a three cylinder petrol engine developping 220 Hp and driving the rear wheels and an electric motor developping 129 Hp that powers the front wheels. Which gives us an all-wheel drive hybrid sports car with a total output of 349 Hp. Naught to 62 mph is expected to be hit in 5 seconds with a top speed of 250 Km/h (155mph). The i8 Spyder is has a range of 30 Km when using nothing but electricity.

After this, and the Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid concept, I learned to love hybrids. What about you?
