So, car fans, how would you feel if you had to sell your Supercar hybrid? Not good. Not good at all.
But hey, that’s what often happens following a drink driving ban, so many of you reading this article, we are sure, won’t be too sympathetic.
This is exactly what happened to former England football captain Wayne Rooney, who has been banned for two years from driving after being caught at almost three times the legal alcohol limit. And whilst we are sure he didn’t have to sell it to ‘stay afloat’, it was the right thing to do given his current circumstances and taking depreciation into account.
The Everton FC icon has sent the silver BMW i8 back to his local BMW dealer for them to sell it on his behalf for around £65,000 – when it was new, the model would have set him back approximately £112,000. This amazing hybrid is stunning and hits 62mph in just 4.4 seconds.
It has been rumoured that this car is only one of Rooney’s vehicles that will be sold following the ban.
