Even for people who are not autophiles, the Italian brand Ferrari is synonymous with speed, power, and exclusivity. Now in its eighth decade, the brand—along with its iconic shield featuring a prancing black thoroughbred on a yellow background—is nearly a generic metonym for supercar. But with over years of constant innovation, contemporary automobiles have become so sophisticated that an average Toyota Camry sedan, or Ford pickup, is now as fast as a Ferrari sports car was just 20 years ago. Ferrari has upped its game as well, creating supercars that nearly defy the laws of physics. We recently had the opportunity to test a number of these vehicles, as well as their corresponding models from the prancing-horse brand.
According to Autocar , BMW is already working on its next post-i8 project. But unlike the i8, which is not a supercar, this unnamed vehicle will serve as a direct competitor to the likes of the McLaren S and even the Acura NSX. Furthermore, it'll incorporate all of the German automaker's latest advancements in electrification, lightweight components, and other exotic materials. Klaus Frohlich, the BMW board member who's in charge of product development, told Autocar that "If you are an engineer, once in your life, you want to make a super-sports car. I think partial electrification will enable that. Although the vehicle would not serve as a direct i8 successor, it will in many ways pick up where the i8 leaves off, such as an improved carbon fiber chassis and compact and powerful electric driving units.
It took all of two days before the first supercar news of arrived. BMW, it seems, is cooking up an indirect replacement for the i8 hybrid sports coupe, only this time, the model in question is pegged as a new flagship M Performance model that could produce a combined horsepower. If this rumor has legs to it, we could be seeing that very car: a proper BMW supercar that can compete with the best the segment has to offer. This is the kind of news you want ringing in The M cars are solid performance vehicles, but they hardly qualify as supercars.
If you are lucky enough to see a BMW i8 rolling down the street, you'll immediately take notice. Unfortunately, the i8's plug-in-hybrid powertrain can't cash the checks written by its supercar design. With horsepower and an estimated 18 miles of all-electric range, the i8 can't keep up with either the best sports cars or the best plug-in hybrids on the market. But for drivers who value curb appeal and exclusivity above all else, none of that may matter. The big news for is that the i8 is now available as a roadster , with a folding soft top and two seats instead of the two-plus-two arrangement found in the coupe. BMW also tweaked the i8's plug-in powertrain to produce 12 extra horsepower and an estimated three extra miles of EV range.
After being absent from the market for nearly 20 years, BMW has finally brought back the beloved 8 Series for a second generation. Clearly, this has made render artist Rain Prisk reminisce about the original 8 Series from the s and inspired the designer to imagine a new take on the glorious grand-tourer. What you're looking at here is the classic 8 Series reimagined as a mid-engined Ferrari fighter. The design shares more than a few similarities with the Ferrari F, which is no coincidence. Both cars have pop-up headlights, and the F's shape lends itself well to BMW's s design philosophy. The Ferrari's side scoops have been removed, but we can't help but wish BMW had put this sleek mid-engined supercar into production. Sadly, BMW hasn't produced a mid-engined supercar since the M1 finished production in
