We already know that the Master Blaster owns a BMW i8 sports car, but ever thought that he will get so much into it that he will do custom paint job. Yes! Sachin Tendulkar, BMW India’s brand ambassador has got his BMW i8 custom paint job in a shade of red. And just to add this to your notice that it is not a temporary wraparound and a full body paint job.

Being the first BMW with TwinPower technology and an electric motor, the i8 sports car is the costliest offering by Bavarian Motor Works. Inside the cabin, the futuristic layering design theme of the i8 will steal your eyes with steering wheel and multimedia control over it, Harman Kardon Surround Sound System, BMW iDrive, BMW Navigation, etc.

The interesting part comes under the skin, where this hybrid sports car gets its power from a 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine that transmits 228bhp of strong power to the rear axle combined with a lithium-ion battery powered electric motor that is good to develop some extra 129bhp of power. The combined system can make a power of 357PS with a torque of 570Nm. It can bolt from 0 to 100kmph in a mere 4.4 seconds before hitting a top speed of 250kmph.
