This car belongs to a person known to us. Apparently he got fuel worth Rs. 2L free. One of the two in India as per what he told. Beautiful piece of machinery, but irony is the car is chauffeur driven and only he can enjoy the car

It is one of the eight i8's that have been alloted to India for this year. A chauffeur driven i8??
Why would someone ride shotgun in a 2-seater car?? Total disrespect to the car

I think two deliveries so far. Not sure about bookings. Regarding being driven, not that the owner doesnt drive, but it will be the drivers who will actually enjoy this car. Thats all I can divulge in a public forum keeping the owners identity in private.

I am not too sure here, but from what I have seen, the young chap, owner's son that is, is quite a driving enthusiast. He is usually seen out in his S Class with his friends' luxo barges.
And this is the first delivery. The second will be delivered in Delhi in a few days' time.


PS :: About 10 i8s have landed I hear. Looks like they're selling really well.

Bangaloreans love their white cars. The i8 comes in such beautiful shades, wish he went for dark metallic grey.

Still proud that Bangalore was given the first customer i8. Dont think Navneet has it on display even.

Apparently the i8 was a gift from the husband to his wife. Probably explains why it's chauffeur driven.

I feel it's normal for a Billionaire's wife to travel in a Bimmer i8. But just think about the driver and how lucky he is

Sheer beauty! I don't say this often but it leaves you speechless .
I have been seeing the i8 advert on OSN network and it is excellent. Fits the car perfectly.

It looks good, like it just landed from Mars. Fine. But if I remember correctly then Jeremy told in his review of the i8 that it just has a 7 gallon ~ 26 litre fuel tank.

Now doesn't this make it one of the most impractical supercars to own?

And rich people do have weird tastes.. Buy a two seater 'supercar' to be chauffeured around? Insane!

Wow, Never knew we had one of those in India too. Before the 911 GTS, this would be me favourite. But since this was limited edition, I never thought that it was available in India. The wheels on this are plain poetry in my eyes.

I think this is mechanically almost same as the 911 Carrera GTS, probably with a few suspension setup differences. The 911 GTS Coupe, Rear Wheel Drive with Manual would be me my favourite car.

Rachit.
