5. BMW i8

BMW i8

On the subject of electric cars we’d be remiss not mentioning BMW’s brand-new i8 plug-in hybrid, plus AutoGuide.com features editor Sami Haj-Assaad insisted on including it.

This Bimmer coupe looks like something from the future, with unusual surface details, colorful accents and scissor doors. The car’s interior is just as flowing, with a variety of shapes and angles that provide a totally unique look.

Under the hood BMW’s i8 features a three-cylinder gasoline engine that delivers 228 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque. This ICE is augmented by an electric motor and a centrally mounted lithium-ion battery. Running solely on electrons the car offers up to 22 miles of range and a top speed of 75 miles an hour. When the engine is factored in, total output measures 357 ponies, which is enough to propel this car to 60 miles an hour in 4.2 seconds.

    it was a tossup between the TESLA Model S and the 458, Viper, Aventador, and 911.

    How can anyone think the Model S is sexy?

  • johnls39 .

    I understand that the Model S is an incredible car and a complete package. I seen the car in person and I can say that it is beautiful but I do agree that there is nothing sexy about it.

    RS5? I8? Gran turismo? Come on guys..lol

    f12 is much better looking than that cookie cutter lambo. They all look the same, they are like porche.

  • Sarah H

    I’ll give you the RS5 and maybe even the i8… but the Gran Turismo is a sexy sexy car.

  • Sarah H

    F12 FOR SURE!

    i think the mc stradale is alright but the normal one just looks like something is not right, to my eyes at least.

    The 2015 Corvette Z06 convertible belongs in there. Sorry chevy haters, but the Z06 is world class looks, performance and quality. As soon as our Government stop reporting every possible defect, which they don’t even touch on the exotics, American will be recognized again.

  • Khoi Ho

    Nah…The Koenigsegg Agera R is da sexiest in my perspective.

  • John

    No Lotus?

    Performance, no question on the Corvette. But come on, it looks like something i had in my Matchbox car collection as a child. Powerful and aggressive? Yes. Sexy? Far from it.

    Hmmm, definite bias towards Europe here. How about the already mentioned ‘Vette and Viper – both definitely sexier than any Audi out there. Then there’s the Japanese hot wheels – Nissan 370z Nismo, Lexus LFA, Honda NSX – to name just a few. Back in Europe, there’s the Porsche 911 & Jaguar F-Type that easily out-sexy half of the list. And just to stir the pot, none of them hold a candle to the 1963 Corvette Stingray split window coupe.

    Give me a break, The Audi and the Tesla are sexier than the new Corvette. Not one American car on the list. Look at that Audi, talk about a washed out bar of soap with wheels. Since when do a mesh grille, shaped like a snow plow, and aluminum covered side mirrors make a sexy car. Someone got to you guys!

    The Mk3 (not available in the US) VW Scirocco should definitely be on this list
