Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I’m super excited to share with you my weekend date with my dream car, the BMW i8. A BIG thank you to BMW USA for making this possible! I had the best time of my life driving this uber cool, sexy, and elegant beauty around for 3 days!
If you’ve followed me from the beginning on my Instagram, you already know how much I love the BMW i8… it was literally love-at-first-sight! The i8 made its first appearance in Mission Impossible IV (2011) as a concept car, and it caught my attention right away by how sleek and different it looked. So when the BMW i8 officially launched in 2014 as one of the first luxury hybrid sports cars, I was super stoked!
If you watched my Insta stories this past weekend, you probably saw me, hubby, my little one, and our friend Albi all squeeeeeeezing into the i8, lol… We were surprised we actually all fit as hubby is 6′ and Albi is 6’5! But it worked out and we had a great time driving the i8 around in Venice Beach. 😉
I’ve been a loyal BMW driver for about 10 years now (until just recently after I had my little one). My very first BMW was the 325xi, then the Z4, i3, and finally the 328d. No matter what series I drove though, there was one thing that remained consistent and is the reason why I love BMW so much – the handling. With near-perfect 50:50 weight distribution, it makes the drive feel so smooth and sturdy no matter if I’m accelerating, turning, or braking. BMW really does hold up to their claim to be “The Ultimate Driving Machine”!
Luckily for me, I was given the limited production- Protonic Frozen Black Edition to drive. As you can see, the paint on this i8 is a matte color, or “Frozen Black” as BMW calls it. It was exquisite…I felt like I was driving the Batmobile, haha! I don’t consider myself (or have ever thought) that I’m cool, but for the 3 days while I was driving the i8 around, that changed…I actually did feel cool! 😀
What do you think of the BMW i8? Or what is your dream car? Let me know in the comments below!
