TCC’s Bottom Line
German precision and handling combines with Italian power to create a superb supercar that's also fit for daily use. No matter whether it's a coupe, convertible, or Gran Coupe, the 2014 BMW 6-Series covers soft and elegant as well as it does sharp and athletic. The 2014 BMW i8 is a new kind of sport coupe--an ultra-efficient one with advanced materials, electric and gas propulsion, and a lot more--and buyers will have to recalibrate their idea of what performance means to appreciate it fully.
