Magnificent performance

It is not a sports car; there is a glimpse of luxury in everything especially the comfortable platform. The company do emphasized on this factor more than giving more speed.

  1. BMW should make an electric car to complete with Tesla. I guess they can’t design the same performance so they paid someone to write this article that doesn’t even mention an specific performance or price. This was a very boring article about an obsolete car. I wish I never wasted my time reading it.
