Even though Murray’s match against Philipp Kohlschreiber was postponed due to rain, it may have given the Scottish player time to think about the car he would be getting in case of a win.
On a more serious note, he probably didn’t need any extra motivation considering the fact he’s already one of the best in the world at what he does – currently ranked world No.3.
Murray went on to win his first ever ATP title on clay, saying that “This title means an awful lot to me. I really enjoyed the week here in Munich. It was a magnificent tournament. Philipp was actually the better player in the third set today, but the key points went my way.”
He also added that the bad weather didn’t really bother him because “as a Scot, I’m used to the rain.”
Peter van Binsbergen, Head of Sales & Marketing for BMW was also there to present Murray with the trophy and the keys to the i8. “Congratulations to Andy Murray on his victory at the 100th anniversary of this tournament. We now look ahead with great joy to 2016 and the next anniversary: the 100th anniversary of BMW. I hope Andy Murray enjoys driving the BMW i8,” added van Binsbergen.
The i8’s hybrid powerunit is good for 362 HP and 570 Nm (420 lb-ft) of torque, helping you reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.4 seconds. Add that to the excellent fuel economy and the car’s looks, and you’re sure to be one very satisfied BMW owner.
