BMW i8 Spyder

The BMW i8 Spyder is still a concept, but like the 8-legged insect it’s named after, it’s quietly approaching you as you sleep.┬áBased on the i8 coupe that debuted last year, the i8 Spyder is a plug-in hybrid with a 96 kW electric motor up front and a turbocharged three-cylinder gas engine mounted in the middle. On electricity alone, the i8 Spyder can go about 19 miles before the gas engine turns on to recharge the batteries. Most impressively, the car can be front-wheel-drive, rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive depending on your needs. Plus, word is the seats will be made out of 100% tarantula hair.
