BMW has been teasing us for years with concept renderings of the i8, but it looks like the wait is over. The German auto maker has unveiled the official production version of their highly anticipated, highly efficient 2014 BMW i8 plug-in hybrid sports car.

The 2+2 vehicle utilizes a turbo-charged 1.5 liter, 3 cylinder engine that paired with an electric motor, pumps out an impressive 362 horsepower along with 420 lb-ft of torque. Sure the vehicle is extremely efficient, with the ability to achieve 94 miles per gallon, but it’s no slouch when it comes to performance either. The BMW i8 has a top speed of 155 miles per hour, and will reach 62 mph from a standstill in a blazing 4.4 seconds. BMW is also bringing a ton of new technology to the scene including their laser headlights (brighter and more efficient than LED headlights), Surround View camera system giving you a bird’s eye view of this beauty, and so much more. Expect the BMW i8 to be released during the spring of 2014 with a price tag of $136,000. Watch the video below.
