TIME checks out the BMW i8 and offers up its opinion on this futuristic Plug-In.

TIME concludes that the i8 is worth its starting price of ~ $137,000.

Really? How can it be worth that price?  TIME says it's incredible looks, quickness, handling, etc., coupled with its low fuel consumption, put the i8 in a league of its own, thus making it worth its high price simply because there's nothing else out there like it.

Do you think that the i8 is a bargain at ~ $137,000?  Can we consider any car a bargain with a price over $100,000?

We should point out that getting an i8 for that ~ $137,000 price is not easy.  You'll likely find mark ups like this and even this insane premium at over $230,000.  Oh, wait times are approaching forever too.
