BMW recently unveiled images of their latest BMW i8 Spyder concept car, which is the convertible version of the car Tom Cruise drove in Mission impossible 4 late last year. Unlike the coupe, the Spyder has a two-section folding roof and upward-opening doors. The interior features an 8.8-inch (22.4 cm) screen display, which BMW claims, shows “all the relevant driving information in three-dimensional, high-resolution quality.”

Inside the hood, the hybrid has both a 131 hp electric motor to drive the front wheels and a 223 hp turbocharged gas three-cylinder powering the rear wheels, which allows for front-wheel, rear-wheel, or all-wheel drive. The i8 Spyder tops out at 155 mph, goes from 0-62mph in five seconds, and most impressively, does so while maintaining an impressive 78 miles per gallon!
