This gold Rolls-Royce is up for sale – but you won’t be able to buy it using cash, or even gold.
The seller wants the £117,995 asking price to be paid in bitcoin.
The value of the cryptocurrency has rocketed in recent months a one bitcoin is now valued at about $10,000, that’s about £7,500.
So, depending on the exchange rate when someone buys the Rolls-Royce, they would have to have about 17 bitcoin.
The car is being advertised on Auto Trader and is the first UK car to be listed purely in the cryptocurrency.
It’s a 2010 four-door Ghost model with 35,000 miles on the clock. It has an in-built fridge and Freeview TV.
The 6.6 litre engine produces 563bhp, which can power the car from 0 to 60mph in 4.7 seconds, with a top speed limited to 155mph.
The numberplate GO07DEN (spelling Golden) is up for sale alongside the car for an extra £8,000.
It also comes with a 360-degree overhead camera system, active cruise control and automatic braking.
The owner, who is based in Oldham, told Auto Trader: “Why not trade in bitcoin? I treat it in exactly the same way as normal currency these days.
“It’s safe, convenient and incredibly valuable right now so, to me, it makes sense to trade my car this way. It’s the future.”
Bitcoin has soared 1,000% in value since the start of the year, to such an extent that someone who had bought just £118-worth of Bitcoin a few months ago would be able to afford the Rolls-Royce.
Erin Baker, Auto Trader editorial director, said: “With the meteoric rise in popularity and value of bitcoin in recent years, it comes as no surprise that sellers are now attempting to trade this way.”
