Conan O’Brien, late night show host of ‘Conan’ on TBS, just got his hands on a BMW i8, and he is seen in the video below taking it up to very high speeds on the Autobahn in Germany. He took the hybrid supercar beyond 140 miles per hour but it wasn’t the speed that had us in stitches. His comedic nature and ability to strike joy/fear in other people (especially his passenger) is something you really have to see.
We wish Conan would do a lot more of these in the future. Perhaps he has a future as a James May replacement?
*EDIT* We’ve heard reports that this video may not work on mobile platforms. Watch it on desktop!
