BMW i8

Few cars embody the idea of futuristic design quite like the BMW i8. At first glance, it could be mistaken for a vehicle from Tron or the most recent Batmobile. The i8 is an eye-catching plug-in hybrid sports car that starts at $140,700.

Arguably, the i8’s most futuristic features are its “scissor doors” that open upwards. The doors are made of aluminum, carbon, and thermoplastic, all lightweight materials that make it easy to open and close them.

The i8 is made of carbon fiber materials and weighs just under 3,500 pounds, allowing it to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds. It has a combined fuel economy rating of 76 mpg-equivalent (mpg-e) and a range of 330 miles.
