Following a concept shown at the 2012 Beijing Auto Show, the production BMW i8 Roadster was first announced in 2016 with the car entering production in early 2018. For the roadster, battery cell capacity was increased and electric power output was increased by 12 bhp to 143 bhp. Along with the car’s existing 1.5-litre three-cylinder gasoline powered engine, this made for a combined total output of 369 bhp. The i8 Roadster boats a 0-100 km/h time of 4.6 seconds, leading to a top speed of 250 km/h, with an all-electric range of 53 km.

This single owner i8 Roadster was ordered in the truly stunning colour scheme of E-Copper over a i-Blue leather interior. E-Copper was chosen as the i8 Roadster’s launch colour and it is easy to see why it was a BMW favorite, as it accentuates the i8’s modern shape and adds to the car’s 21st century level of sophistication. Delivered new to Norway, it has been driven just shy of 10,000 km with its original owner, showing how usable and versatile a car like this can be. It is accompanied by its original owners manuals, charger, and two sets of keys, one Display Key with a small screen, and a more traditional “valet” key.

Combining both cutting edge looks and technology, this i8 Roadster is ready to be used and enjoyed by its second owner.
