The BMW M8 Competition may not sit at the top of the average gearhead’s dream car list, but there’s no denying that it’d be one of the best cars to live with. This two-door sibling of the M5 Competition combines the performance of a supercar with the comfort and luxury of a grand tourer — all wrapped up in an eye-catching body. Of course, a well-rounded car like that doesn’t come cheap — especially if it’s from Germany. If you’re looking to buy one, you’ll need to fork over at least $146,000 before you even take a look at the options list.

Alternately, you could just spend a few bucks and enter to win an M8 Competition — and help out a good cause in the process.

Now, normally, we wouldn’t look twice at a car raffle, but this one is a little different. It’s run by Omaze, which serves as a broker to help charitable organizations raise much-needed funds by auctioning off cool cars and interesting experiences. In this case, the money is going to the UCLA Medical Center. As you might expect, this Los Angeles-area hospital is currently bracing for an onslaught of patients due to the covid-19 pandemic; the funds raised in this raffle will be used to support the medical center’s lifesaving initiatives, such as a new ambulance, which are sure to be needed during this time of need.

Plus, if you win, you won’t just get the M8 Competition; you’ll be getting all the taxes and shipping costs taken care of, too, plus $20,000 in cash to spend as you like. (Pro tip: use a little of it to buy a good radar detector.) If you’re feeling lucky and generous, it’s worth dropping a couple dollars. Even if you don’t win the car, you’ll still be coming out better for it.
