8. BMW i8 Concept Roadster
With progressive design and sporty performance, this is a car you just gotta have as a show-off piece. A plug-in hybrid concept, it combines a turbocharged 3-cylinder with electric motors to deliver performance worthy of the BMW badge.
Set to go into production in 2014, no official specs are yet available, but it should deliver environmentally responsible fuel economy as well, meaning looking like you’ve arrived from the future is guilt free.
There’s only one thing wrong with the i8, and that’s the fact that people will recognize it from that terrible Tom Cruise flick.
