If you've recently seen a mysterious badass bimmer stealing the ending scenes of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, then let us introduce you to, (or re-introduce, if you're a car fanatic) the BMW i8 Concept.

This smokin' hot, futuristic ride is one of the first models of the new BMW i sub-brand which starts launching emission-friendly vehicles in 2013. This hybrid-electric utilizes an impressive dual-fuel system that allows it to operate at around an amazing 80mpg. Combined with the capability to go 0-60 in a reported 4.8 seconds, this car is made for those who want the speed without sacrificing fuel.

The Playboy Stats:

ENGINE: 1.5L 3-cylinder turbo

HORSES: 328bhp

TANK: 24 litres, diesel

EMISSIONS: 1.3 l CO2 per 100km

HYBRID CONSUMPTION: 3.8L/100km

PROJECTED RANGE: 700km

PLAYMATES: Three plus you (not included, but it won't take long)

Details are scarce at the moment, but look for more to surface at the North American International Auto Show that starts this week in Detroit. For now however, check this out:
