A practically brand new BMW i8 is already scheduled for its first major service after the driver somehow managed to flip it over during a test drive in Mexico.
According to Wrecked Exotics, the plug-in hybrid sports car was being test driven by a journalist around what appears to be a private track. The journalist clearly lost control sending the car out through a wire-mesh fence, though details on how he/she actually managed to flip the car over remains a mystery.
The condition of the driver was not stated though given that the roof is still somewhat intact, we’re guessing they only suffered a few scratches and a bruised ego.
Superficially, the car appears to have only suffered a damaged roof though the pool of fluid seen on the second image begs to differ.
What is more depressing is that this particular i8 is supposedly one of the first few production models.
