A BMW i8 for the grand prize

BMW offers up their i8 once again to the winner of the CIMB Classic 2015.

After announcing that they would be the Official Automotive Partner of the CIMB Classic 2015 by deploying a fleet of BMW 5 Series and X5s for the event, BMW Group Malaysia is also proud to give away the grand prize in the form of a BMW i8.
American golfer Scott Brown finds himself the new owner of a brand new BMW i8 after scoring a Hole-in-One on the 199-yard, par 3 on the 15th hole with a six-iron on the first day of the CIMB Classic 2015.
The BMW i8 was launched earlier this year and retails at RM1,188,800.00. It is the first premium plug-in hybrid sports car in the world built from Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic and houses and powered by award winning 1.5-litre three-cylinder combustion engine with Electric Motors. The i8 has the ability to sprint from 0-100kph in 4.4 seconds while only consuming 2.5-litres per 100km of fuel and emits only 5.9g/km of CO2.
But the i8 wasn’t the only car present at the CIMB Classic 2015. BMW has also brought their BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe, the newly CKD-ed BMW X6 and the recently launched BMW X1 sDrive 20i.
David Owen, the Head of Marketing of BMW Group Malaysia did the honours of presenting the all-new i8 to the Hole-in-One winner Scott Brown.
