BMW i8 Spied Winter Testing [Spy Photos]

Looking not all that far from a production model, BMW is out testing its plug-in hybrid sports car in the European arctic. These spy photos, show the camo-clad i8, the flagship of BMW's upcoming lineup of fuel-efficient alternative energy models.

Using the 170 hp electric motor from the entry-level i3, the i8 adds a 3-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine with 223 hp. With power going to the rear wheels BMW says the i8 will deliver a 0-60 time of around 5 seconds, with a 22 mile electric range and an overall 78 mpg rating.

It may seem like a distant reality, but BMW has announced the i8 will go on sale in two year's time.
