Bringing you the latest in luxury cars with the BMW i8 Roadster
Take the sports car of tomorrow out for a spin. With its rear-mounted combustion engine and front-mounted electric motor, the BMW i8 Roadster combines the best of old and new technology in one thrilling ride. With futuristic looks and a top speed of 155 mph, it has everything you want from a luxury car rental, plus an enviably green footprint. It even has enough luggage space for a romantic weekend behind the seats, making it perfect for those special getaways.
A break from the luxury saloon market, the original BMW 8 Series was a two-door Grand Tourer with a V8 or V12 under the bonnet and a 6-speed gearbox. Available from 1989 to 1999, the series was replaced in 2017 with the i8 Coupé. The new BMW i8 Roadster is a soft top petrol-electric hybrid. The roof can be operated on the move and retracts in just 15 seconds, while the rear windscreen rises automatically by a fraction of an inch for better aerodynamics. The car's high-tech credentials also extend to its fabrication, with 3D printing being used to create some of its components.
The BMW i8 Roadster has a nimbly adaptive four wheel drive system. The 1.5 litre turbocharged 3-cylinder petrol engine engine feeds power to the rear axle, while the 11.6 kWh lithium-on battery battery does the same for the front wheels. Meanwhile, mapping technology ensures that the steering is instantly responsive yet has a reassuring feeling of weight.

BMW's success as a luxury brand has a foundation in true sporting excellence. Its commitment to endurance racing dates back to the 1930s, a decade in which the company celebrated podium finishes in the Mille Miglia and Le Mans. During its stellar history, BMW has won 24 European Touring Car Championships and numerous other prizes. Meanwhile, cars with BMW engines have finished first in over 20 Formula One races. Another chapter in this ongoing legacy, an enhanced version of the new 8 Series is scheduled to take part in several key grand touring endurance events in the near future. Although it has some worthy rivals like the Jaguar F-type and Porsche 911, the BMW i8 Roadster's cutting edge design and impeccable pedigree makes it hard to beat.
