Want a BMW i8 Now? Greedy eBay Sellers Mark Up Prices from $60,000 to Over $116,000!

BMW’s new i8 hybrid sports car is very hot commodity these days; just look at what eBay sellers are demanding for their allocations.

We found six BMW i8’s listed for sale from as low as a minimum of $60,000 over the MSRP of $137,500 (plus $950 destination) to as high as $263,900.

We know what you may be thinking; perhaps it’s the extras, but that’s not really the case.

Whereas on other BMW cars optional equipment prices can pile up, the roundel brand has followed a different path with the i8 that is offered with three trim levels priced at $2,000(Giga World), $3,000 (Tera World) and $10,800 (Pure Impulse World).

So what it is aside from free enterprise and super-greedy dealers? Plain and simple, limited production combined with high demand that stems from the car itself and the buzz created by all the positive to rave press reviews.

While we strongly doubt that all dealers will get their asking price, they could end up pocketing a hefty profit.

    Maybe you could word that differently? It makes it sound like the original msrp was 60k and new their asking 116k for them. It confused me because I thought there was no way the i8 was that cheap…

      That’s exactly what I was going to say. Thank you!

    Notice how most of them have a “good” amount of test miles on them. No thanks. That’s outrageous. If you’re going gouge someone, at least have a zero miles car, not one the dealership people have abused. Again, no thanks.

    That is the worst most misleading article title that I have ever read.

  • i8’s are only worth $60,000 at best.

    • Miami Built

      That would probably be the NSX. The Bimmer is worth wayyyy more.

    Or you can purchase one from San Francisco BMW for $710,000 (price as of last Wednesday) when I was at the dealership!

      Makes me glad I bought mine ahead of time. Though for that price we are entering Porsche 918 Territory.

        and now they’re discounted to just over $100k. Many lease deals for the same price as a new F250 diesel.
