After Uber gave rides in Cape Town and Johannesburg for a select lucky Uber users in a Mclaren 650S, the guys at Uber SA didn't want to leave Durban out on the action, hence they teamed up with the guys at BMW Supertech to bring Durbanites a once in a lifetime chance to request an i8 as your Uber car!
Yes, on Friday the 6th of November, users of Uber in Durban can request to be picked up in the future of mobility, the futuristic i8 between 10am and 4pm. Having driven one, I can say even if you are a passenger in this phenominal car, it is an experience of note.
How does it work? If you have the Uber app and your are registered, simply open the app at, toggle over BMW Supertech logo and request the i8 like you would a normal Uber, if you're fast enough, the i8 could be on it's way to pick you up! There is only one car on the road tomorrow so demand will be high, so remember to be quick on the draw!
Don't have Uber? Not a problem, simply download thea app, register using the promo code available and you're good to go.
Lucky users who request the car mustt note that rides are limited to 5km, only one trip is allowed per person and the BMW i8 only seats one person. For more info, read their blog.
