BMW i8 Replica For Sale on eBay


Laurel BMW of Westmont, IL, is selling on eBay a full scale replica of the new BMW i8. Ahead of its launch, most of the BMW i-certified dealerships around the country have received a full scale BMW i8 model to be showcased to customers in their show rooms.
Made of fiberglass, the i8 replica comes with functional LED lights but there’s a slight catch- It does not drive, doesn’t have an engine or transmission. You cannot open the doors and it does not have an interior. And furthermore, the wheels do not roll. So as you can probably tell, you won’t get very far at any speed in this BMW i8.
The eBay advertisement say that the BMW i8 replica should weight about 500 lbs since it was “carried in” by four guys. It is hollow underneath, about a quarter inch thick and it has bracing inside so it is very stable.

Essentially the car looks in its place in any spot you put it so we can see this popping up in the future in clubs, bar, restaurants or even in design exhibitions.
As of midnight, August 23, the bidding price was up to $8,200, not bad for a purposeless vehicle that doesn’t function like a car should.

The 2014 BMW i8 has a base price of $135,700. A recent one-off BMW i8 sold for $825,000 in Pebble Beach.
