BRANDON, FL, June 15, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Ferman BMW of Tampa Bay, Sarasota, Pinellas and Pasco Counties in Florida is pleased to announce the luxury brand's latest award. The stunning BMW i8 Plug-in Hybrid supermodel has been named the 2015 UK Car of the Year.
BMW's incredibly desirable i8 hybrid two-door sports car, which offers jaw-dropping speed and excellent stability on some of the most challenging roads, was judged by 27 of Britain's automotive journalists. Each selects a top performer for each of the 12 categories before the group can zero in on the ultimate choice: the UK Car of the Year.
On the way to claiming the title of UK Car of the Year, the BMW i8 Plug-in Hybrid was named Performance Car of the Year. Other categories included Best Luxury, Family and City Car. The BMW 2 Series Active Tourer won the title of Best MPV.
The luxury automaker's desirable sports car features an efficient drivetrain: a turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine located at the rear of the car and an electric motor up front. Combined, Left Lane says that customers can expect a total output of 362 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque and a top speed of 155 miles per hour. News and reviews also suggest that the new i8 can sprint from zero to 62 mph in only 4.4 seconds, and due to the lithium-ion battery pack, the car can reach a range of up to 22 miles on electricity alone.
