First launched in 2014, the award-winning BMW i8 boasts a futuristic, uncompromising design language and the latest hybrid technology, making for an unparalleled driving experience.
The exquisite details, Dihedral doors and characteristic flying rear buttresses of the i8 are unmistakable and offer fantastic kerb appeal. Inside, the model features yet more progressive design, with a swooping dash complete with driver oriented controls, and electrically adjustable sports seats. It is, of course, appointed in the most luxurious materials and can be specified and customised to suit your personality.
Power for the i8 comes courtesy of a mid-mounted three-cylinder turbo petrol engine and front-mounted electric motors. These combine to deliver a 0-62mph time of just 4.4 seconds with a limited top speed of 155mph, all while emitting as little as 42g/km of CO2.
The placement of the engine and electric motors affords the i8 excellent weight distribution for ultimate handling. The long wheel-base with short overhangs offers greater stability when cornering, while redesigned Aero Curtains improve aerodynamics and efficiency.
As its futuristic looks would suggest, the BMW i8 is packed full of the latest technology. Even the way that it is constructed, with its LifeDrive Architecture that features an aluminium chassis and carbon-fibre passenger compartment, is cutting-edge.
A drive select switch allows you to cycle between drive modes, enabling you to get the best performance and efficiency in any given situation. The centrally mounted iDrive screen, meanwhile, offers the driver real-time information on battery charge and discharge states, as well as control over the car's many other functions and features.
