Description

THIS IS THE PERFECT CAR FOR LA!!! 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 over $150,000, 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. Must put only 91 + gas in car. Must provide gas receipts. ** NO SMOKING **
