BMW i8 Spyder gets production nod

Tuesday, December 31st, 2013

Filed under: , , , ,

BMW i8 Spyder Concept

BMW could be poised to expand its i8 range, beyond the hardtop version of the plug-in hybrid supercar. A report from Bimmerpost is claiming that the i8 Spyder, which we showed you in concept form at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show, will be heading to production.

The website claims the open-roof fuel-sipper was shown to BMW management last Friday as a production-intent model. Other than that, there’s not a lot to tell here. The i8 Spyder should feature all the same mechanical and aesthetic features found on the i8 Coupe, just without the confining nature of a roof. It’s unclear when we’ll see a production i8 droptop make its debut, although this certainly strikes us as the kind of car that should arrive at the Geneva Motor Show.

While an i8 Spyder does seem like a logical leap for BMW’s i sub-brand, we’re going to keep this one filed under the rumors category until we hear more.

Santa upgrades to Lamborghini Gallardo, spreads joy in LA

Sunday, December 29th, 2013

Filed under: , , , , , ,

Santa and an elf drive around Los Angeles in a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder.

We understand. It’s hard to slow down and really take in the holiday season, so it often comes and goes in a blur. That’s especially so in Los Angeles, where almost everything moves fast and you feel like a face in the crowd. Determined to keep up with the fast pace and be noticed, one Santa Clause and his “elf” assistant decided to upgrade their “sleigh” – to a Lamborghini Gallardo (no reindeer needed).

We commend Santa’s choice in the beloved Lamborghini and think Los Angelenos did notice him (though we’re not sure he wanted to be approached by Freddy Krueger up there). Head below to watch Santa and his helper spread holiday joy with V10-powered goodness.
