Big car crash in Beijing! A BMW i8 crashed into a barrier on the Jiuxianqiao exit of the Airport Expressway. Reader Georg was at the scene of the accident right after it happened, thank you for the photos! It appears that the Bimmer took the corner with too much speed, got into a spin, and banged the barrier with the front.

BMW is a popular brand in China. Yesterday we had one with Jesus and today we have fiery i8 convertible with flames on the sides and a lot of blue purple lights. If the real i8 was this wild BMW would probably sell more of them. BMW also does not make a cabrio. Mirrors are a tad too big.
