eBay: 2023’s Most Expensive Car Parts

Purchased Custom Ferrari 512 TR Luggage for $11K+

eBay recently published their top 10 most exorbitant car components traded in 2023, and it’s a fascinating list. The virtual marketplace carries practically every vehicle piece required, from alternative light units to full engines – eBay can be a great place when searching for rare or highly-priced items. Evidently, some people are happy to dig seriously deep into their pockets whilst shopping on this digital retail channel.

Topping the UK’s list is a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 from a 2020 BMW M5. This powertrain, accomplished with only 15,000 miles on the clock, traded for £13,500 (which amounts to around $17,700). This may appear to be a costly purchase, however if repurchased from BMW, one can expect an exorbitant total. We can only wonder if the used S63B44T3 has made its way into an M5 facing engine failure or destroyed in an incident. Hopefully, it is being kept for an over the top engine transplant project!

It is remarkable that the runner-up on the list is another BMW V8 engine. This powerhouse, which measures 4.4 liters, was dismounted from one of the regular 5-Series models (probably a 550i) and sold for approximately twelve thousand four hundred fifty US dollars ($12,450). Brits appear to be greatly attracted to German-made automobiles as evidenced by the third priciest part listed, a ceramic brake caliper with component parts for the AMG GT, fetching £9,250 ($12,120).

Provided with supply chain difficulties that still impact the automotive sector, it appears there are some people who have been forced to explore uncommon destinations for obtaining components for their expensive vehicles. Conversely, another possibility is attempting a low-price repair. In fourth place on the list for a truly remarkable engine, we’d like to present a 2.4-liter device which was made for a classic Porsche 911 created between 1970–1973. Apparently, spending around £9,000 (close to $11,800) seems to be linked to a larger restoration plan.

Trailing carefully is a full 3.0-liter turbocharged diesel motor for the Maserati Levante, absorbing a cost of £8,890.20 ($11,650).

The sixth-place ranking is secured by a totally reconstructed transmission system built for a Nissan GT-R, that was sold for £8,700 ($11,400). If you thought that was unexpected, seventh position is even more so, as a special tailor-made Schedoni suitcase collection was purchased for £8,493 ($11,130) that fits properly into a Ferrari 512 TR.

A more conventional compilation of the list shows that a full LS7 V8 motor and transmission for a Corvette, including its subframes, sells for £8,099 ($10,600) in the UK. On the other end of motoring spectrum is the 40-kilowatt-hour battery pack from a Nissan Leaf, offered at £7,859.99 ($10,300). Finishing of the lineup is an entire 3.0-liter turbodiesel engine intended for an Audi Q7, and sold for £7,700 ($10,090).
