New York, New York
There are no interior rattles and in my car and I have driven 65,000 miles. The interior materials look and feel high quality, and have held up well over time. The roof is well built and is still in good shape, I have a very large trunk and can get most thing in it. Over all this is a very reliable car.
Four years from launch and the i8 still feels like itÕs come to earth via a discontinuity in spacetime. Yet now, hereÕs what we earthlings call a facelift. Albeit the face has hardly changed. Main news is the gorgeous Roadster version. The Coupe also gets many of the same under-skin changes, usefully improving both its handling and efficiency. The i8 looks amazingly radical. Minimal-drag shape-work for efficiency is artfully combined with flourishes of crowd-pleasing flamboyance. The powertrain and structure are just as unorthodox and brave as the styling. A small mid-mounted 231bhp petrol engine drives the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic gearbox, while a biggish 143bhp electric motor drives the front wheels.
