My First Drive in the BMW i8 [Shmee’s Adventures]

BMW presented the new i8 hybrid supercar for the official UK launch at an event held in Mayfair, London. With two models on display I take a quick look around the car before jumping in for a test drive.

Thanks to Phil Winders, UK Product Manager for the i8 for joining me and explaining some of the functionality of the car on our drive. I must say the i8 has left me very impressed with the integration of the hybrid systems coupled with the overall feel and experience of the car.

Thanks for watching, Tim
