BMW i8
Here’s the latest diary from Harry Metcalfe, which sees the evo magazine founder travel to an icy northern Sweden to hitch a ride in a prototype version of BMW’s i8 performance hybrid, which is being touted as a Porsche 911 rival.

Expected to feature the same unit as the i8 Concept, the production car will use a turbocharged three-cylinder petrol unit, developing 164 kW (223 hp) and 300 Nm of torque, to drive the rear wheels, along with a 96 kW (131 hp) motor powering the front axle.
