A few videos of the new BMW i8
undergoing winter testing have managed to make their way to the web courtesy of YouTube. The clips surfaced after our spy photographers
managed to lay eyes on the green supercar frolicking through the snow. The clips give us a good idea of what the i8 will look like in motion. We're still not completely smitten with the roof-mounted sideview mirrors, and watching the i8 drive around on the ice and snow hasn't done anything to sway our opinion. We can't help but think that the pieces look like hippopotamus ears.
It's impossible to tell whether the mule we see dashing through the snow is equipped with the same small-displacement diesel engine of the concept or whether this machine wears the turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine that's rumored to debut with the production version. Either way, the clips are worth a look. Hit the jump
to see BMW's next flagship in action for yourself.
