BMW i8 Visits Birkdale

On Monday the 20th June students from S1 and S2 got the opportunity to look at some cutting edge technology from BMW in the form of an i8 and the new 7 series.


The BMW i8, was first introduced as a concept supercar, and is one of the only road worthy 'plug-in' hybrid sports cars on sale today - valued in excess of £100,000. The 7 series was equally as impressive jammed pack with all sorts of tech and gadgets from remote control parking, carbon fibre body panels to massage seats.

Students were given a short talk by Mark and Jamie two representatives from Sytner BMW and also had a chance to ask questions about the cars. They were then given the opportunity to sit in the cars and take photos.

Phil Offer, Head of Design & Technology said: "We were most grateful to Synter BMW for letting students look at the cars. It was fantastic to bring design and technology to life for students here at Birkdale, and for them to see cutting edge technology in a real and interactive way opening their eyes to future possible careers".
