from what it sounds like this car is gonna be made with almost all carbon fiber, and other expensive materials to keep it light. not easy or cheap to produce. it'll probably cost them $100k to produce one, but they wont be able to charge that much for them

I highly doubt it will cost $100k to produce because of CF.

As low volume CF buyers we spend lots to get custom CF parts, but BMW has an entire factory for making it now. The do it in high volume and drive down the cost.

There is no way BMW makes a $100K car and sells it for no more than $50K
