Golf Cart vs. BMW i8 – Which One Is Faster?


Golf Cart vs. BMW i8 – 

Which One Is Faster?

A golf cart takes on the new and powerful BMW i8. Unlike most races, this race is not on a race track or normal roads, but around a golf course….the odds are fifty-fifty.

So what’s so special about BMW i8? BMW i8 uses a plug-in hybrid system consisting of a turbocharged three-cylinder BMW TwinPower Turbo petrol engine and BMW eDrive technology in the form of an electric drive system. The 1.5-liter combustion engine develops 170 kW/231 hp and drives the rear wheels of the BMW i8, while the 96 kW/131 hp electric drive sends its power to the front wheels and allows an all-electric range of up to 35 kilometers (22 miles) and a top speed of 120 km/h (75 mph). It’s pretty spectacular.
The BMW golf cart seen in the video probably packs around 10-20 horsepower, but is that enough? Take a look to see the outcome:
