One of the great things about going to auto shows is the bags of swag you get to take home. Most of the time, the “swag” is a throw-away USB drive, but sometimes it’s a bit better.

In the case of the BMW display at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, we got a great little hardcover book covering all the new releases and cleverly incorporating a USB drive bookmark loaded with high-quality pictures of their new releases- including our favorite new supercar, the sold-out BMW i8 hybrid.

You can take a look at the 2014 BMW i8 hybrid super car in all its glory in the BMW provided photo-gallery. I’ve also included an i8 video. Enjoy!

BMW’s already ‘Sold Out’ i8 Hybrid supercar + VIDEO

BMW’s i8 hybrid supercar is the first over-the-top exotic since the original M1 that debuted nearly forty years ago. The car promises to combine BMW’s world-renowned driving dynamics, state-of-the-art hybrid technology, and supercar performance in a package that’s hard to ignore. So hard, in fact, that the BMW i8 is already sold out.

Since you won’t be able to buy your own BMW i8 for a while, I thought I’d share these videos from BMW that highlight some of the car’s slickest high-tech features — one is above (as you can see) and one is in the Gas2 repost below. Hopefully, this will help satiate your i8 lust until the cars start hitting used car market… maybe you’ll be able to get one on the cheap! Enjoy!

There has been no shortage of superlatives in articles about BMW’s new i8 hybrid. It’s a beautiful, powerful, capable, technologically advanced, and relatively affordable car (compared to, say, a Ferrari 458 or Lamborghini Gallardo) that pushes BMW’s Chris Bangle-developed “flame surfacing” design language in a compelling new direction.

What’s not to love?

If you have the means to buy a new BMW i8, I guess the only thing “not to love” is the fact that you can’t buy one. They are 100% sold out, and BMW is making noises to the effect that this run of the 360 hp, 300 km/h hybrid supercar is going to be the ONLY run.

Here’s hoping that’s not true and there are many more years of fresh BMW i8s to come. Either way, you’ll have to satisfy your i8 lusts by finding a used one (fat chance!), or by cozy-ing up to the YouTube video, below, which BMW PR mavens claim will give you “a closer look at the BMW i8. This time you can get more information about the performance of the BMW i8 as an integral part of the vehicle.”

Enjoy the latest video, then, and let us know what you think of the newest BMW i8 supercar in the comments section at the bottom of the page.
