Service History

Full BMW Main Dealer






Fast, light and agile with neck-snapping styling are all attributes we associate with supercars, but how many can add an ecologically conscious edge to the package? Not many. And at a reasonable price point? Just one. When it was launched in 2014, BMW’s revolutionary i8 redefined what a supercar could be. By pairing a turbocharged 1.5-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine with a potent electric motor and installing it in a lightweight carbon-fibre tub, the i8 had all the visual and dynamic drama you could want from a supercar, yet the running costs and ecological impact of a plug-in hybrid.

A Roadster variant was launched in 2018 and continued until the end of i8 production in early 2020, adding even greater aural delights and a more involving open-top driving experience, and this particular example, resplendent in a flawless coat of Sophisto grey metallic paint with Frozen grey highlights, must be the very best and last of the breed being a February 2020 car.

Having covered only 861 miles from new with full comprehensive BMW main dealer service history and just one previous keeper, this incredible machine is offered in pristine as-new condition yet at a fraction of its original £127,705 list price.

As one of the very last i8’s to roll of the Leipzig production line, this stunning Roadster benefits from the more powerful later-spec drivetrain with a mid-mounted 231hp petrol engine and 143hp electric motor merging to output an impressive 374hp. Combined with the all-wheel drive transmission and slick shifting six-speed automatic gearbox, this is enough grunt to propel the sleek drop top from 0 to 60mph in just 4.6 seconds and on to an electronically limited 155mph top speed.

The i8’s iconic visuals combine a riot of complex surface treatments, contrasting colours, sharp creases and scalloped sills, all topped off with the theatre that comes with opening the elegantly-hinged dihedral doors. These unique aesthetics are amplified further when the fabric roof is retracted and the equally futuristic interior is revealed.

Like all vehicles sold by Automotive Addiction, this i8 is presented in completely flawless condition, which has been further enhanced by an additional 60 hours of meticulous preparation from our in-house professional detailers including multi-stage paint correction to ensure a truly incomparable finish. You can see this painstaking process for yourself by viewing this car’s exclusive preparation video on the walkaround video on our website.

The standout condition of this future classic is no-doubt attributed to the fact that it is laced in £2,000 of paint protection film, with the application of CarPro Immortal self-healing paint protection film to the front-end impact zones, which has shielded the original paintwork underneath from stone chips and scratches, preserving the originality and immaculate condition of this vehicle for years to come.

Our painstaking inspection process has revealed no instances of non-factory paintwork, with consistent paint micron readings across all body-panels. So you can buy in confidence that this special i8 Roadster has led a life free of damage and is in simply impeccable condition both inside and out.

Please view the comprehensive video for more information on this standout example and be sure to take the time to read the incredible full specification on our website to truly appreciate exactly what this car has to offer.

To ensure you don’t miss this unrepeatable opportunity to invest in acquiring this unique landmark model that is sure to be revered as an appreciating modern classic, please contact us without delay if you wish to discuss this vehicle or secure it with a deposit.
