A burnt BMW i8 just went up for sale on Craigslist for $13,000. Judging by the photos, a fire has destroyed the front part of the hybrid sportscar and now the owner is selling the remains on the popular marketplace.
The ad doesn’t say how the fire occurred, but it gives details around the damage. The 2014 i8 has 3200 miles on the odomoter and apparently it comes with a good rear suspension, rear wheels, rear engine, rear transmission, subframe, doors (good shell, regulators good), calipers, battery, main carbon fiber tub (undamaged), front electric motor and transmission (might need to be rebuilt).
The $13,000, or best offer, includes the whole car with salvage title, but the owner is also willing to separate the parts: complete B38K15T longblock engine with turbo ($6800) and rear transmission ($2200).
With so very few BMW i8 models on the road, it’s a shame to see one of them going out like this.
