BMW i8

The BMW i8 is an exceptionally efficient plug-in hybrid car that offers the sort of performance levels that would leave most fuel-powered vehicles trailing in its dust. What’s more, there aren’t many automobiles that can compete with this supercar’s stunning good looks.


The breathtakingly striking i8 boasts a sporty coupé profile, complete with dramatically swooping roofline – and a smoothly muscular body that contributes to the car’s aerodynamic qualities. The vehicle’s sporty appearance strongly hints at the power contained within, while futuristic touches, such as a pair of butterfly doors, complete a wholly contemporary appearance that looks to the future. Even at night, the i8 is unmistakable, thanks to its distinctive LED light signature. Despite its athletic capabilities, the car offers room for four inside, with a rear compartment that is especially suited to conveying younger travellers.

A 228bhp petrol engine and a 139bhp electric motor combine to produce 357bhp and 570Nm of torque. The i8 goes from 0-60mph in a little more than four seconds, aided by six-speed automatic transmission that reacts to every change in tempo. The car’s lightweight body and aluminium chassis work to deliver perfect balance. This helps to ensure that the i8 is a joy to handle, whether you’re travelling in the city, winding round country lanes or accelerating along the motorway. Last but not least, BMW’s xDrive system transfers power to each wheel, delivering increased stability in the process.

Technology and Safety

Wherever you go, enjoy your favourite tunes or speech-based content courtesy of an 11-speaker Harman Kardon sound system. Plan every journey down to a tee with the car’s 8.8-inch touchscreen satellite navigation system, making last-minute alterations whenever necessary.
The i8’s body might be lightweight but it’s also exceptionally strong. In any case, front, side and curtain airbags are included as standard, as is an Electronic Stability Program, which delivers enhanced traction. Super-bright LED front and rear lights illuminate the way ahead and make the i8 easy for other motorists to spot.
