This weekend BMW held a very special 4-day event, presenting each of their fascinating Next 100 Concepts at the Santa Monica Airport. Since BMW was offering test drives, we took the opportunity to test drive the BMW i8, and we’ll have a full review for it shortly.
For now, let’s get up close and personal with the BMW Vision Next 100 Concepts:
