i8 The Road, Now For A Swim

Just when you thought you had seen it all.  Not to be out done by Tesla, BMW decided to give their i8 a try in the soft.  I mean if you can out perform just about every car on the road, may as well go for broke.  This new i8 features, the skate wing sand release system.  You just floor it, then the doors flap up and down and lift you to safety.  This is also a great evasion option, if you put it in reverse the doors will dig you in to hide and await your next victim.   

    I have seen some expensive cars stuck on the beach, this BMW i8 definitely makes the top five.  First person to drive a Ferrari on the beach wins a free T-shirt.  A Lamborghini gets you a hoodie.  Last year we had a Jaguar on Cape Henlopen, a mercedes, and two Mustangs stuck on Conquest beach.

This year’s theme must be AWD luxury vehicles and the things they can do better than regular cars.  The Tesla drove off the beach, we don’t know how this i8 fared. 

By the way people are catching fish today, since it is not a good drinking day at the beach, it is less crowded and no one is in the water.  Assateague is seeing a lot of drum action.  Few weird fish in the surf we have rarely seen, some are rather freaky and ugly-looking.  

Fish On!
