The eco-friendly BMW i8 may have one more feature that will impress potential buyers, a smart key fob that looks – and performs – like no ordinary car key. One BMW insider shared the image above with Bimmerfile, which shows what the i8 smart key could look like. According to the publication, the key will include its own high-resolution LCD screen which will reportedly be able to display various useful information such as charge levels, time on a charge and the distance the vehicle can travel before requiring recharging and/or refueling.

New York’s Auto Show is always packed with debuts, and this year wasn’t any different. From the 2013 BMW X1 and Mercedes-Benz’s 2013 CL-Class and GL-Class, to the 2013 Ford Explorer Sport, 2013 SRT Viper and many more, I took a spin through the show to check out some of the newest cars that will soon hit the market — and of course, look at a bunch of my favorite rides as well. The show-stopper for me? The matte blue Audi R8 GT, though I loved the Ford Explorer Sport, too. Catch all the McLarens, Aston Martins, Rolls Royces, BMWs, Bentleys, Mercedes-Benzes and more in our 2012 New York Auto Show photo gallery, which is linked below.
We’ve always wanted to hit the NY Auto Show and this year, Buick sponsored our trip. There weren’t many brand new announcements (we actually can’t think of a single one that we can remember), but we did spend some quick time going over some of the cars that caught our eyes. Don’t judge us. Check out the brief video we put together after the jump!
This post is part of our “Live Like A Genius” content series sponsored by Buick and the all-new 2010 LaCrosse.
If you’re a car fanatic, you can’t help but being intrigued by Rolls-Royce’s newest announcement; the RR4 due to start production in 2010. It’s the “baby” Rolls-Royce that’s been floating around in the rumor mill for the last couple years. And by baby, we mean smaller. Ever since BMW bought Rolls, their design and technology has slowly made it’s way into Rolls-Royce’s lineup. From the same 7-Series key, to iDrive, to the same driving controls, they’ve integrated a whole lot. Now, the RR4 is set to further expand that line by using the 7-Series framework. Expect it to be similarly sized, but pack that Rolls-Royce punch. Now, who else is getting one with us? Matching cars? Let’s go! We got first dibs on BGR Blue, though…Couple shots of the limited edition sketch and Rolls materials after the jump.
