So who owns this sleek Sh14.2m BMW that Nairobians are drooling over?

A brand new sleek BMW that has been shipped by a prominent business man in the country has not gone unnoticed by Kenyans.

The brand new BMW i8 series which retails at Sh 14.2 million ($141,000) hit the streets of Nairobi to the delight of onlookers who were quick to take pictures and share it online.

The car, whose pictures have been doing rounds on social media for the past two days, has a Kenyan number plate placed on its windscreen but still bearing European number plates.

According to a document from National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) which Nairobi News cannot authenticate, the sleek car was imported by one Kevin Mulei.

Mr Kevin Mulei, is the owner of Mo Sound Events and the pioneer of Groove Awards in Kenya.


However, when contacted by Nairobi News, Mr Mulei declined to comment on the speculation and ownership of the car.

The car is similar to the ones gifted to every member of Leicester City’s squad in August after lifting the English Premier League trophy by its Thai chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

The players were presented with the cars at the King Power Stadium on August 5th.

The BMW i8 can go from 0–100 km/h (0 to 60 mph) in 4.4 seconds and has a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). The BMW i8 has a fuel efficiency of 2.1 L/100 km.

All one can speculate is how the owner will reach these speeds on our Kenyan roads.
