The BMW i8 plug-in hybrid has won the prestigious title “UK Car of the Year 2015”.

The i8 also walked off with the “Performance Car of the Year” title – no mean feat for a car with a three cylinder engine!

2015 is proving to be a good year for the i8, which has already been named Top Gear Car of the Year.

More than 450 i8s have already been registered in the UK, but if you want to get your hands on one, you’ll have to wait a while – there’s currently a 9 month waiting list.

This is the second consecutive year that BMW’s i Cars have won the title “UK Car of the Year”, as 2014 saw their i3 electric car take the crown.

The UK Car of the Year awards are judged by 27 of the UK’s most popular motoring journalists, and divides cars into 12 categories before choosing a winner for each category, and an overall victor.
