Puerto Rico Receives the First BMW i8

The BMW i8 officially unveiled last year at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, has recently made its way to Puerto Rico in a premiere, the model being bought by a BMW fan.

The BMW i8 bought and brought to Puerto Rico is wearing a one-off body paintjob and it might be regarded quite exclusive, especially in Puerto Rico, where life is expensive as it can be.
