Ludacris Sings About His BMW i8 for Instagram

With the BMW i8 looking so freakishly good and posting such impressive numbers, it was only a matter of time until famous rappers started noticing it.

The first one to kick-off a possible new trend similar to the Rolls-Royce one was none other than Ludacris. The founder of the Disturbing Tha Peace label just posted a video on Instagram in which he apparently sings about his brand new i8, doing it for ‘the gram’.

We understand his enthusiasm and who wouldn’t, after all? The i8 is a brand new proposition for the eco-conscious people that also want an unusual design and performances to match.

The carbon fibre body and the aluminum underpinnings make it extremely light despite packing a serious battery pack in the center stack. Up front we have an electric motor making 131 HP and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque powered by those batteries while round the back we get to see and hear at work a 1.5-liter 3-cylinder unit making 231 HP and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque for a total, combined figure of 362 HP and 570 Nm (420 lb-ft) of torque.

Since the weight of the thing is only 1,485 kg (3,274 lbs) and it has all-wheel-drive, it will do 100 km/h (62 mph) in a breathtaking 4.4 seconds. Not only that but it will also do 121 mpg (2.1 l/100 km) at the same time. Not that it would be a problem for the famous rapper that has an estimated worth of $25,000,000.

We’re guessing the i8 price tag of just $136,725 is nothing compared to the price tag of some of his other rides that include a Bentley Continental GT Convertible and a McLarne MP4-12C amongst others. You can check out his 'song' about the i8, through the link below.
