Money can buy you love
Let’s compare it to its rival, the Audi R8, shall we? The BMW i8 costs £99,845, while the R8 is priced from £93,735. A pricing victory for Audi, you say? Wrong.
Thanks to the model’s eco-friendly low emissions, which we’ll get to in a moment, the BMW i8 is eligible for the Government’s £5,000 Plug-in Car Grant. This takes the price of an i8 down to £94,845.
Still more expensive than an Audi R8, you add? True, but once you consider the BMW i8’s savings on road tax and fuel, then the £1,110 difference between the supercars price tag is pretty much void.
As a side note, the BMW i8 is also SIX times cheaper than Porsche’s hybrid supercar offering, the 918 Spyder.
So, for that kind of money, can it get you from ‘A’ to ‘B’?
Range anxiety? A thing of the past
