I think the value he is talking of is to the "individual". After he/she sells, market value applies. Money can buy satisfaction. I am thinking this was not done to profit.

As for today - the value comes from quality and trusted brand name, support, parts, service etc.

Then again, there are plenty odd folks out there who would not mind blowing money (... like you said - inflated price? ) on one-off pieces, its just that this one looks like crap, hope it drives better.

Not a fan of the car as a whole, but I have to give it to them reducing the weight by 330 lbs, squeezing a V10 in, carbon fiber panels, and the top speed is something to be proud of.

To each his own...


I could def put an appraised value on the car.

I'm really amazed at all the hate on this board. Yes maybe the car is a little over the top and alot of $$ but someone took the time to do it, and props to them whereas half the people on this board couldnt change their own muffler out.

I think this can be done wayyyyy cheaper (e9x 6 speed bolts right up to s85 motor) while keeping the stock body too. The cost with this car is the coachwork mostly.
Not everyone is arguing that the cost is due to all the labor!

Most if the comments are about the car as a whole! Some commented that they wouldn't purchase it at the stock price.

I did give credit where credit was due, but damn bro....that car is not for the masses and it just looks off even for $40,000!

If it's a "2011" why does it have the older tail lights?

Ok, so if I drop $15k into my 135i that should make it resale for $70k? Sure. You got the cash ill sell it in a heartbeat...that being said, $15k into my 135i I would blow this $200k piece of trash into next week. What a waste

Cool concept with the V10 Transplant... BUT!

The interior is a little overdone for the price tag. Losing the dash trim kills the look of the interior imho. They could have worked in a little contrast to make it pop.

And holy hell, those wheels are ugly


Oh, is it just me or is there only one pedal and no carpet in that interior?

Not Really

Cars are toys. Eventually you will want something else. For $200 k I can think on others like Ferrai, McClaren and Porsche.

idk what you guys are all talking about but the wide body kit looks really good, and IMO better than the overdone vorseteiner one. The boser hood look is aggressive and sick IMO as well. And lastly the engine is fucking incredible! You hear that shit? watch the video of it that somebody posted already. The interior is def over done but i love the exterior of the car. The price tag aint too nice but i know it was goin for like 300 grand and some change brand new.

Isn't Brabham Racing the same team that won the Formula 1 World Championship with BMW back in 1983 with the BEASTLY Megatron Engine?
