Far from average, this 2016 BMW i8 has incredible design both inside and out and the electric motors make all the mid-range torque you could possibly want. Today there are fewer than 5,000 of them on the road, so it is quite the treat to have not one but TWO of these beauties in our fleet.
A mid-mounted 1.5-liter three cylinder turbocharged engine puts 228 horsepower to the rear wheels, while two electric motors, one mounted near the engine, one living up front, throws power to the front. Combined, the power-train kicks out 357 horsepower, and is tuned to 407 horsepower on this beast with 420 pound-feet of torque to all four wheels. Extra go-go juice is stored in a 7.1-kWh battery, good for 15 miles of all-electric range. Total driving range is 330 miles and the EPA gives the i8 an MPGe rating of 76 in hybrid mode or 28 miles per gallon combined using just the gasoline engine.
