The I8

The 2018 BMW I8 will do 0-60 in 4.4 seconds,but this is not the fastest acceleration time on BMW,it's actually the 2019 BMW M4 Competition with an acceleration time of 3.8 seconds. The price of the 2018 BMW I8 is £115,105 british pounds($148,758.82 US Dollars). The I8 is a plug in hybrid with an electric range of 33 miles(53 Km). The top speed of the I8 is 155 mph(249 kph). The I8 has butterfly doors,and in my opinion they look fenomenal.

The I8 Roadster

The I8 roadster is basically a convertible version of the I8,but you do lose the back seats in the I8 roadster. The roadster does 0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds. In full electric mode it has a top speed of 75 mph (120km),when the engine is on it has a top speed of 155MPH(249 KPH). The price of the I8 roadster is £127,105 british pounds ($163,444.96 US dollars).

My Opinion

In my opinion the I8 Roadster is not worth the extra £12,000 pounds. Simply because it's got basically all of the same stats. The only thing you would miss out on with the normal I8 is having a convertible.However with the standard I8 you would get the back seats. Personally i would go for the standard I8,but if you're in the market to buy an I8 and you have an extra £12,000 to add to the cost of the standard I8 then buy away.
