Goodwood Festival of Speed Hots up with BMW i8

This year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed (FoS) is hotting up already with Honda having already stated their intent to show off the new hybrid NSX and now today’s news sees BMW’s i8 hybrid sports car make an appearance at the famous event too. The event takes place over the 26-29 June 2014.

Touted as being “BMW’s most advanced sport car ever”, the new BMW i8 will be seen in action for the first time in the UK. Along with a line-up of the hottest new BMW M cars on stand, this summer’s Festival is promised to be one of the most exciting displays for the Bavarian manufacturer.

The BMW i8 will steer its way up the famous 1.16 mile course, showcasing the searing acceleration of the new plug-in hybrid sports car. First customer deliveries of the i8 will begin in June 2014, while the introduction of optional BMW laser headlights for the BMW i8 is scheduled for sometime in the autumn. The BMW i8 will be the world’s first production car to offer this innovative lighting technology.
