Rolls-Royce used to be a British gentleman’s limousine. A gifted driver named Alfred wearing white gloves would chauffeur some oil tycoon in the iconic high-end car. Today, if it’s not encrusted with diamonds or wrapped in velvet black, it will most likely be a car rappers rent and pose next to in their flashy videos.
Like it or not, the day has come for the BMW i8 to take that same path.

Oh, no! Oh, yes!

It is what it is, so you should better get ready to see pierced rappers with full-body tattoos stirring 20-dollar bills in a can and drive the German plug-in hybrid sportscar in their videos. It has come to our attention that Rabat, Morocco-born rapper French Montana has recently bought one for himself, and we simply had to say something.

The purchase was a matter of pride, of course since this piece of innovation is a petrolhead’s delight. Naturally, the 30-year-old artist - rather renown for being Khloe Kardashian’s on-again, off-again boyfriend, than for his music - has been bragging about it on his social networks.

Maybe he didn't wake up in a new Bugatti like his fellow Ace Hood, but the BMW i8 sure is a beauty. It also represents a masterpiece we’re not yet ready to see ruined in cheap video clips in which the so-called artists usually step on the vehicle’s hoods. That is if they don’t go straight to burning them just for fun.

However, let us all virtually join hopes and trust in Montana’s common sense. Let us all hope he will know how to appreciate the low vehicle weight, the low drag coefficient and especially its hybrid performance.

Special delivery !! new babe !! #i8
