Launched in April 2014, BMW's groundbreaking i8 hybrid sports car was a revelation. Even in 2022, two years after production ended, it looks futuristic. The i8 was well received wherever it was offered, with over 20,000 produced. That's not bad for something capable of scaring a variety of European and North American sports cars. This 2015 BMW i8 Pure Impulse World Coupe is your chance to own one of BMW's icons, and with just 21,000 miles on the clock, it's got a lifetime ahead.
Take away the wheels, and the BMW i8 could almost pass for an interstellar object. Its slick shape, butterfly doors, and ability to silently pass by on electric power make it a head-turner wherever you take it. This 2015 BMW i8 Pure Impulse World Coupe wears a Sophisto Gray Metallic paint job with Frozen Blue accents and rolls on 20-inch staggered wheels. Its LED headlamps with cornering lamps pierce the darkness with great efficiency. Black brake calipers starkly contrast with the brightly colored units that one might expect on a sports car, but the i8 isn't about conforming to the typical sports car stereotype. The interior color theme is Pure Impulse Carom Spice, and it offers seating for two adults and two children. Fully perforated leather adorns the interior with an Anthracite headliner. As you might expect, this 2015 BMW i8 Pure Impulse World Coupe offers a comprehensive feature set. Dual-zone climate control, heated and electrically adjustable front seats, digital instrument cluster, and BMW's iDrive infotainment system are all standard. A Harman/Kardon speaker system is on hand for music lovers. There's some luggage space available in the front trunk and storage spaces in the cabin.
Just like the look of the i8, its powertrain was equally impressive. This 2015 BMW i8 Pure Impulse World Coupe packs an electric motor to drive the front wheels and a 1.5-liter 3-cylinder turbocharged engine behind the passenger cabin. This gasoline powerplant drives the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic gearbox. These two powerplants combine to give a system total of 357hp. Zero to sixty is a 4.4-second affair, with top speed electronically limited at 155mph. The i8 can also travel for up to 15 miles at a time purely on electric power.
