Eight years from its launch and the i8 still feels like it’s come to earth via a discontinuity in spacetime. The radical styling and minimal-drag shape is artfully combined with flourishes of crowd-pleasing flamboyance such as those scultpted hip and iconic ‘gullwing-style’ doors
Presented in Crystal White Pearl metallic with Black Giga Amido fully perforated seats, our 2015 i8 is genuinely a sight to behold and is nicely spec’d with upgraded Harmon kardon sound system, 360 surround cameras and heads up display to name but a few of the tasteful extras.
Arguably, however, the biggest talking point is the impressive petrol plugin-hybrid drivetrain which combines a small mid-mounted 231bhp 1.5 3-cylinder turbo petrol engine which drives the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic gearbox, with a 143bhp electric motor drives the front wheels.
In Sport mode you’ve got an AWD sports car delivering comparable peformance to an M4. Hybrid mode is peaceful and ultra-efficient and fully electric mode can travel purely on battery power up to 75mph, using the plug-in battery reserve.
Having just had a major service including all oils, filters and brand new tyres all round plus a fresh NCT, this i8 is ready to be enjoyed and must be one of the best presented examples on the Irish market.
An immensley impressive car and a true modern classic.
