BMW i8 Pure Impulse Up for Sale in Germany for Just €156,000

Price tags for BMW’s i8 plug-in hybrid car have been going over the roof lately as demand has far outpaced production. The press has been reporting lately that cars like the one we’re about to show you fetch around twice the starting price even though they are considered ‘second-hand’.

Well, a second-hand model we found in Germany is priced at €156,000 by its owner and we think it’s a fair deal, even in the given situation and the fact that it has only 10 km on the odometer. The seller claims that the car is fitted with the Pure Impulse package that costs €19,000 alone. Chip in the €126,000 starting price tag and you’re close to the asking price.

So what’s included in the Pure Impulse package, you might ask. Well, first of all, you get all the available optional features you can and also a selection of exquisite details around the cabin and the body of the car.

The interior will be done in Carpo Carum Grey that is only available as part of this exclusive package. The seat leather is perforated while specific BMW i Blue accents decorate the rest of the cabin and the headrests have the i8 moniker embroidered on.

Other details include BMW i lettering on the brake calipers, ceramic application for the gearshift lever, i8 lettering on the door sill, and a black leather cover for the engine.

The best bit about it, though, is that you get a BMW i Pure Impulse Card that gives you access to the Pure Impulse Experience Programme which “offers a wealth of ideas and opportunities tailored to the individual interest and passion of its members.” We’re not sure what that means but according to BMW, you’ll get invited to all sorts of events where ‘innovative ideas and trends in a variety of areas’ are discussed.

Considering the fact that the waiting list for an i8 is currently around 1 year long, this car right here seems like a pretty good deal to us. That’s if you have €156,000 to spare...
