BMW i8 Roadster trims
RRP from £126,935

All i8s come with 20-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, cruise control and a surround-view camera system. Inside there’s leather upholstery on the seats, door trims and dashboard alongside brushed aluminium trims on the doors and centre console. You get two 8.8-inch displays as standard – one instead of analogue dials and another on the dashboard – through which you’ll control the built-in sat nav and Harman Kardon stereo. Unfortunately, Apple CarPlay smartphone mirroring costs extra.
