Bow Wow Selling BMW i8 for $147K Cuz of a Broken Heart
Sometimes you hear a story and think, “That’s just crazy.” Such is the case with the 28-year-old rapper Bow Wow. He’s selling his 2014 BMW i8 for $147,999 to make room in his garage for his new Range Rover Autobiography. (And that’s marked down from $169,999.) At least that’s the story he’s peddling to TMZ in an exclusive entitled, “I’m Selling My Spaceship on Wheels.” But it turns out a broken heart may be behind the sale of the BMW.

According to Edmunds, a 2014 BMW i8 in excellent condition with leather seats and cornering lights should sell for about $114,000. That’s assuming it’s in excellent condition and has about 15,000 miles on it.
OK, so maybe Bow Wow has been busy touring. It only has 1,516 miles on it. That only bumps the price up to $116,688.

Maybe there’s some Bow Wow bonus to buying his used BMW that’s not talked about? Heck, a 2015 BMW i8 new starts at $136,500. Looking at the photo gallery of his car, it’s hard to see where the extra $35,000 comes in. Maybe it’s been tricked out in subtle ways with diamond encrusted glove boxes and brake pedals.
It appears this all has something to do with the fact his engagement to reality star Erica Mena has been broken. According to Music Times, she gave him the car. That’s probably the real reason he’s dumping the car — and not to make room in his garage for his Range Rover Autobiography. No word yet on if he bought that car or it was a gift from another mistress.

But wait a minute, let me get this straight—He was gifted a car by his lover. They break up. He keeps the car and then tries to sell it for $150,000 pure profit. Man, I am in the wrong business.
