Journalist Flips BMW i8 During Test Drive
We've all had bad days at work. The boss is a jerk, coworkers drive you nuts, and that damn printer never works. All of that pales in comparison to the bad day one auto journalist had when he managed to flip a BMW i8 onto its roof. The crash happened in Mexico near the capital of Mexico City and according to CarScoops, this was a media test drive that went horribly wrong. These pictures captured by WreckedExotics show the damaged car on its roof in the middle of the road. RELATED: See More of the 2014 BMW i8
The fence running alongside the road now sports a gaping hole and is partly under the car. It looks like he ran off into the fence and flipped when he tried to recover, taking a little of the fence along with him for good measure.
The car looks to be in rough shape and probably won't be taking any other journalists for a ride anytime soon. As for the driver, we see some event staff on hand but no emergency responders, to it seems he or she emerged without major injury. Still, flipping a $160,000 hybrid sports car is going to make for one very bad day for whoever was behind the wheel.
