If that wasn’t enough, rumors also state that the US buyers are also in tight spot, after the stock with the i8 has also dried out in a blink of an eye.

The pricing list concerning sales in the UK starts from 99,125 GBP, while in the US, the hybrid can be yours for 135,700 dollars.

The BMW i8 hybrid supermodel is powered by a 1.5-liter three-cylinder turbocharged TwinPower Turbo petrol burner, backed by an electric motor with the BMW`s eDrive technology.

The 1.5-liter combustion unit outputs 231 horsepower, sending the power to the rear wheels, while the electric motor develops an additional 131 horsepower on the front wheels.

The BMW i8 also comes with an all-electric range of around 35 kilometers, at a top speed of 120 km/h.
