Can't wait for BMW to possibly unleash a new
green vehicle? Got enough cash in the bank to (almost) buy two Tesla Roadsters? Then say hello to your new ride: an all electric 1995 BMW 840Ci. The car has been converted by Eco-Conversions
to run on Xellerion nickel-zinc batteries that will move the vehicle for 100+ miles
between charges and, according to the description
, "provide enough power to maintain the feel and performance of a luxury sports car" (read: go over 100 mph). The all-electric BMW is currently on sale on eBay for the low, low price of $160,000 (want it without waiting? The Buy It Now option is just $165,000). The car is currently in Lisle, Illinois and there are another five days before the auction ends. My birthday's coming up, in case you're feeing generous. Thanks to James H for the tip!
