A sports car with a conscience? That’s we think about this 2015 model of BMW’s sleek, petrol/electric hybrid coupe, the i8. The i8 is in stock and available to lease today for £723 per month, this pre-owned i8 is significantly cheaper than a brand new i8 Coupe, which is a stellar saving for a fantastic car. Remember, all Hippo Leasings’ used cars go through our strict 124-point check, so you are getting a car that is in the best condition possible.
The i8 is available in Crystal White with pearl effect and boasts the BMW iBlue accent and bold black accents that make this coupe stand out from the crowd, even if you’re driving through a sea of BMWs. Other bold design features are the gull-wing doors and distinct alloy wheels giving the i8 a look that is ahead of its time and lets the i8 stand out from the crowd.
Inside the 2015 BMW i8, you are treated to a tech-rich interior with plush white leather seats, leather instrument panel and with minimalist leather rear seats that you’d expect in a sports car- if you are after a comfortable ride for the family, then consider a Land Rover Range Rover Evoque?

Under the bonnet
In terms of performance, the i8 is a hybrid beast – elegant as the pterippus Pegasus, but with the attitude of the Chimera. The petrol/electric hybrid engine delivers 49 g/km with a reported fuel efficiency of 135mpg.
What that’ll get you is a 357bhp engine from a 1.5-litre automatic transmission engine. The i8 can accelerate from 0-62mph in a lightning-quick 4.4 seconds and will reach a top speed of 155mph, so your adrenaline will always be pumping behind the wheel of this coupe.
Exciting to drive and cleaner than most performance cars, there’s nothing to dislike about this car, and when it’s available to lease right now for £723 per month, there’s never been a better time to get in the driver’s seat
