Wayne Rooney's BMW supercar has been put up for sale on Auto Trader after he was banned from the roads for drink-driving.

Rooney was banned from driving for two years after he was caught drink-driving during a now infamous night in Cheshire. 

The Everton striker, 32, is the only owner of the 2015 BMW i8, a plug-in hybrid which will do 0-62mph in 4.4 seconds and hit 155mph.

Erin Baker, Auto Trader editorial director, said: '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.

'The trend with more Premier League stars plugging-in also reflects the UK car market.

'Auto Trader data for December 2017 shows that searches for electric vehicles were up 56 per cent year-on-year - with hybrid vehicles also showing a substantial 50 per cent rise in searches.

'Electric and hybrid adoption continues to grow across the UK as manufacturers invest in more affordable and desirable models and car buyers become more aware of the benefits of driving an alternatively fuelled vehicle.'
