Although the BMW i8 plug-in hybrid sports car was released in 2014, it’s already sold out through 2015. I saw this one in West LA. The MSRP is $135,925 but because it’s so hard to get, it has been sold at auction for 6 times that amount. It will go from 50 to 75 mph in 2.6 seconds with a top speed of 160 mph.
Update September 20, 2015:
Apparently, the BMW i8 is not as rare as I initially thought because I saw another one a few days later in downtown.
