Bridgestone organized a journey from Munich to Rome with the all new electric BMW i3 and BMW i8 hybrid.

Only three lucky winners were invited to attend and be part of this journey after they won a contest that was organized by Bridgestone and Autobild.

Both cars, the BMW i3 and the BMW i8 were fitted with Bridgestone , the exclusive supplier of tires for the cars. Both the BMW i3 and the BMW i8 were put into different road conditions as the journey began.

The whole journey is made of 4 days adventures . The first day was to reach Zell. The second day drivers traveled around 325 km and reachd Mira city, near Venice. Passing by the twists and turns provided a great opportunity to test the electric car’s handling in winter condition.

To ensure enough grip in the snow and on wet roads, the BMW i3 was fitted with Blizzak LM-500 and the BMW i8 was fitted with Blizzak LM-32 winter tires.

The third day was the longest one, the drivers traveled around 600 km heading towards Florence. The drivers took a break before covering the 340 to Rocca di Papa southeast of Rome.

The final day posed a particular challenge for our intrepid drivers: the chaotic traffic in Rome. But this is where an electric car comes into its own and the cars reached their final destination of the Hannibal Tour, the Colosseum.
