BMW i8 for sale at BCA

The first BMW i8 is up for auction – but how much will it make?

BMW i8 for sale at BCAThe BMW i8 is an electric-hybrid supercar that’s in such demand, secondhand examples are changing hands for more than the official £99,845 list price. 

The waiting list for new models is also two years long – and both are reasons why many car fans will be watching the BCA Top Car Sale auction at Blackbushe next Monday, 23 February.

That’s because the first BMW i8 to be auctioned in the UK goes under the hammer…

Finished in white with 20-inch alloys, with a matching Carpo Light white leather interior, the London Congestion Charge exempt car has covered just 52 miles: it’s effectively brand new, although it does wear a 64-plate registration.

Why it’s come up for auction rather than being sold to an eager buyer for a healthy premium is not clear, but bidding at the auction is expected to be swift from those keen to beat the waiting list.

Which begs the question: how much more than the £100k list price could the ‘pre-registered’ BMW i8 make?

We’ll let you know next week…
