What Would You Pay for an Empty BMW i8 Shell?

Consider this: wouldn't maintaining a blow-up rubber doll be way cheaper and simpler than keeping your girlfriend's material needs satisfied? If you agree with that, this might be just the car for you. Rather than paying full price for a functioning, moving and gas-sipping new BMW sports car, why not just purchase this hollow body shell, currently listed on eBay. The i8 shell, previously used by BMW dealers for promotional efforts, will do nothing except sit there and look pretty.

If you still aren't convinced, you may want to know that the seller is a legit BMW dealer, who claims that the shell was "professionally crafted just for BMW dealers." While it may sound preposterous to some, at the time of writing the current top-bid on this make-believe BMW is $19,100, and is yet to meet the reserve.
