Electric Dreams: BMW’s i8

The BMW i8 Plug-in Hybrid Stunner defies defies all conventional expectations of a car, most of all because it is silent in its approach. When it comes to a car like this, you expect to hear it coming. No, scratch that. You expect to feel it coming… roaring and thundering towards you, the grill lit up like a futuristic rocketship. Instead, the car glides up to you, silently and practically undetectable unless you are looking in its direction. AND if you are looking? Oh my, what a sight to see.


The i8 is lean, sleak, low to the ground, and is ready for some serious trouble. As you slip into the cabin (through a gull-wing door that is seemingly weightless), you will be surrounded by carbon fiber and leather. The dashboard illuminates, beckoning you take it for a spin. Go ahead. Push the BMW i8 Plug-in Hybrid Stunner into drive and get yourself into some trouble.

How can you resist?

Our model, Hannah Morris, is an aspiring fashion designer. At just 21 years old, Hannah turns everything she touches into gold. Currently a server at Annie Bailey’s Irish Pub, Hannah plans on attending art school in an effort to further her creative career. The budding artist spends most of her time drawing and sewing, but also enjoys playing video games and reading fantasty and adventure novels. “I grew up right outside of Virginia Beach and moved to Lancaster last December,” Hannah explains. Though it’s taken some time to adjust, Hannah is ever thankful for the people she’s met along the way. “I feel fortunate to have met some really down to earth individuals, especially in the local music scene, who share my interests,” Hannah says.
