Wayne Rooney’s BMW supercar up for sale

Wayne Rooney has put his BMW i8 hybrid supercar up for sale – four months after being banned from driving for two years.

The stunning sports car, bought new in 2015 for around £112,000, is listed at £64,995 on Auto Trader at a BMW dealership in Blackpool.

It’ is showing less than 8,000 miles on the clock, meaning Rooney has averaged less than 3,000 miles a year since it was bought.

Rooney arrived at Goodison Park in the car for his introductory press conference in August.

Auto Express describes the vehicle as “really does redefine what a supercar can be, with looks that are the stuff of a bedroom poster including ground-hugging proportions and ‘butterfly’ doors. It is BMW’s most striking car ever and the performance is brutal too, with a 4.4-second 0-62mph sprint, while the handling us up there with the very best sports cars.”

Wayne Rooney, leaves Goodison Park in his sports car, after re-signing for Everton FC.

But Rooney has now returned the hybrid supercar to his local dealer and asked them to sell it on his behalf.

“It’s refreshing to see a footballer driving a hybrid, rather than a Chelsea tractor or gas-guzzling supercar, and even more so to see a footballer’s car in a sober colour,” said Auto Trader’s editorial director, Erin Baker.

After pleading guilty to drink driving in September Rooney was banned from driving for two years and handed a 12-month community order with over 120 hours of unpaid work.

Wayne Rooney leaves Everton's Finch Farm training complex in Liverpool in the passenger seat of his black Range Rover, a day after he was banned from driving for two years.

Since then he has been pictured being driven to Finch Farm for training in a Range Rover.
