Description

It's summer and there is nothing better than a convertible Introducing the brand new for 2019, BMW i8 Roadster. With an MSRP of $170,000 this is the most expensive BMW currently on sale and has many improvements from the previous years. Delivering the performance of a sports car, the efficiency of a hybrid-electric vehicle and looks that turn heads and raise cameras; the i8 Roadster is an EXPERIENCE. From cruising on the Pacific Coast Hwy in Malibu, to parking along Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, this car embodies the spirit of LA. Options include: - Larger-capacity Fuel Tank - 20” BMW Jet Black Wheels - 360 Degree Camera - Carbon Fiber Interior Trim - Harmon Kardon Premium Audio - Apple CarPlay - Navigation with Real Time Traffic - SiriusXM Radio - Head-up Display - Heated Seats - Active Driving Assistant - Keyless Entry If you're seriously considering renting this car, you most likely already know what it's all about. The i8 is legitimately a car from the future, disguised as a sports/GT car. Ringing in at just around $170,000, this is close to triple the cost of the abundant corvette's you'll see all over Turo, and I've priced it similarly! The BMW i8 is an icon of progress, marking an extraordinary evolution of The Ultimate Driving Machine.® As an innovative plug-in hybrid, it uses eDrive technology to combine the efficiency of an all-electric motor and the power of a TwinPower Turbo engine for an exhilarating driving experience that's every bit BMW. STRIKING EXTERIOR. The long wheelbase, short overhangs, precise lines, and sweeping silhouette give the appearance that the BMW i8 is surging forward even when it is standing still. The scissor doors of the BMW i8 provide an undeniable emotional and sporty allure that make it truly one-of-a-kind. TURBOCHARGED PERFORMANCE. When a car looks this fast, it better live up to its appearance. The BMW i8 does exactly this with its innovative electric motor that sits on the front axle and the TwinPower Turbo 3-cylinder engine that drives the rear axle. When combined, they deliver a total output of 357 horsepower, 420 lb-ft of torque, and can reach 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds. The interior of this car is flawless. The car is extremely pleasurable to drive and comfortable when in the comfort setting, and fierce when in the sports setting. The ideal car for cruising PCH, going through the canyons, and then crushing the city through sunset Blvd and Rodeo drive. Please respect this car as it is your own, and return it in the same condition as received. Please note the car is a sports car with limited trunk space. Trunk volume is 2-3 Cu ft. Please note all cars have a tracker and dash cam for your safety and the safety is the vehicle. Please note that performance vehicles, such as these, are not quiet vehicles. Brakes do squeak, and it is not a luxury car for around town, due to the car being low to the ground, low profile sport tires, and tight suspension.

my first minor accident on Turo — nicked a curb taking a left hand turn and scraped the right front tire and fender. Shy was calm and kind and worked with me on getting the car towed. The car was drivable but I wanted to make sure no more damage was done. Shy is a pro level host.
