Journos are congregating at an undisclosed location near the Chelsea Dog Run Park in downtown Manhattan as I write this, for the first ever unveiling of the BMW i3 and BMW i8 concept cars in North America. The sneak preview is being held before the cars get shipped to Los Angeles for the LA  Auto Show. The  mostly carbon fiber built battery operated and hybrid-electric vehicles had already been shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show, but here they are, on America soil. 

Both are artists previously known as. The BMW i8 Concept is the successor to the BMW Vision Efficient Dynamics car featured in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. The BMW i3 Concept was previously known as the “megacity vehicle.”

You’ll probably never be able to buy anything like that, but you can look at them in, well, person at the LA Auto Show.
