Description

For your enjoyment I offer access to a limited edition BMW i8 Hybrid vehicle. This is one of those rare concept vehicles which made it to production. Enjoy your visit to Louisiana with a special transportation option. In addition to being an uncommon example of a hybrid sports car with 362 bhp and 420 ft lbs of torque - this $158,000 BMW i8 is a limited "Protonic Red Edition" - only 98 examples are available in the USA. It is outfitted with BMWs uncommon "Laser Headlights" option. This hybrid car has a battery bank and electric motors to drive the front axle and a turbo charged motor to propel the rear for total 4 wheel drive performance while in sport mode. When in Eco mode you will get 36-40 mpg on the freeway. This vehicle comfortably seats two adults and also has two smaller rear seats. Four full sized adults may not comfortably fit. This is is a sports car with unique doors, a unique way to enter and no room for large luggage. It is a smoke free vehicle. It has no damage. It is in immaculate condition with no scuffs or tears on the leather. Please help me keep this vehicle in showroom condition. This vehicle may not be appropriate for someone with mobility issues - the butterfly doors and deep sports seating may be difficult for some people to use. Please contact me prior to booking if you have any concerns - I am happy to answer any questions you may have.

Faqs

  • How far does this car drive on a charge?

    The hybrid portion of the electrical system is for economy cruising and additional acceleration in sport mode. This is not meant to be an "electric" vehicle. On a full charge, electric only, it can go 17 miles - after that, the gasoline engine automatically starts to recharge the batteries and propel the car. There is no plug in charger provided during a rental period.

David is a rock star, very professional and the car is a real looker. At red lights people stop in front and take pictures of the car or by the car. The check in and check out were very through and I learned a lot about how things work. I would recommend this host and car to anyone.
