BMW i8 Badly Damaged In Terrible Arizona Crash


Is it a complete write off?

As you have likely already determined, the BMW i8 pictured here did not come with a mangled rear axle fresh from the factory. This poor hybrid Bimmer ended up this way after a nasty accident that took place in Arizona. Although details are still emerging regarding the circumstances of the crash, preliminary assessments estimate that at least $30,000 in damage was done to this i8. As is very clear in the photos, the rear-end on the driver’s side is severely damaged.

The suspension is broken, the rear bumper needs to be entirely replaced, and the driver's side door is badly damaged. In addition, the carbon-fiber frame seems to have been damaged beyond repair, leaving us to think this i8 could well be a complete write off. What to you think? Can it be repaired?
