The secret behind Rory McIlroy’s luxury super car can be revealed – it’s a gift from BMW.

The World Number One’s arrival at Royal County Down this week turned almost as many heads as his car.

The BMW i8 is the fastest electric car in the world and already there’s a waiting list for eager Irish buyers for the recently released dream machine.

However, if you’re Rory McIlroy, it’s easy to jump the queue and the world’s best took the delivery of the car upon his arrival in County Down earlier this week.

The car was picked out by Rory when Irish Open car suppliers BMW asked the golden question: ‘What car would you like, Rory?’

BMW refuse to comment on such matters when contacted by, however sources revealed that the car was delivered to him personally by the German automakers.

The i8 is a gull winged sports car which is powered by an electric engine, which is backed up by a petrol engine.

It can cost up to €150k, but despite the hefty pricetag it is in huge demand amongst petrol heads.
