Manchester United’s skipper cruises in his new eco-friendly BMW i8 hybrid sports car.
It’s become the norm seeing the world’s top football stars revving engines of the latest luxury vehicles, however not many can boast taking the environmentally friendly route when it comes to their choice of sports car.
Wayne Rooney has added the first plug-in hybrid vehicle from the BMW group- the BMW i8- to his already impressive collection.
The BMW i8 is leaps a head of many hybrid vehicles launched over the last couple of years in terms of performance and design, which justifies its R1.7 million price tag.
The i8 accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 4.4 seconds and top speeds at 250 km/h using a combination of an electric motor and a powerful low emission petrol engine.
