Someone Is Selling A McLaren 720S For 25 Bitcoins On Craigslist

The McLaren 720S has been stunning car enthusiasts ever since its Geneva Motor Show premiere but it seems one owner in the United States is more interested in making the most of the Bitcoin boom.

This 720S has been listed for sale on Craigslist in Atlanta and the owner is asking for 25 Bitcoins, roughly $418,523 at current prices, well over $100,000 more than a brand new 720S will cost you.

The seller claims that the British supercar has just 750 miles under its belt and has been outfitted with a plethora of options, including the 10-spoke lightweight wheels, vehicle lift system, electric and heated seats, stealth pack, sports exhaust, gorilla glass roof panels, and the McLaren track telemetry system.

As the price of Bitcoin continues to increase, the 25 Bitcoin asking price becomes more and more unrealistic. At the time of writing, a price of 20 Bitcoin would be more appropriate and in a couple of weeks, that figure could drop to 15.

Either way, the owner is clearly not interested in holding on to the McLaren, which is a very expensive depreciating asset. However, we suspect they may have some difficulty selling it.

    Do bitcoins have any value outside of illegal sites operating in the deep web?

    • Six_Tymes

      nope. all douche bags of the world support them, they want to destabilize economies, period.

        Sadly not just those corrupt scumbags, but plenty of greedy Western Speculators as well who think they can get rich as it continues to rise ad infinitum. The thing is, I truly fail to see the intrinsic value of bitcoin beyond a speculative curiosity. Does anyone know?

      Our company was hacked last year and gangs wanted some amount of bitcoin to release our datas.This no direct answer for your question but i have heard same story few times,so..

        Sounds like the go to currency for criminals and hackers IMO.

      If you count ‘value’ as retailers outside of the deep web, then yes it does have value. If people are willing to sell something for bitcoins, then it has value.

      Value of course, is relative, as both the person buying and the person selling both believe that the currency has value. People traded seashells as currency because at least 2 people believed they had value. The more people who believed in the value of a seashell, the greater it’s acceptance. 360 million Americans believe in the value of their dollars, while 1 billion Chinese don’t believe the American dollar has any value.

      As for bitcoin’s value, ask someone who uses it.

    Imagine selling this for whatever number of Bitcoins and the next day its value crashes. What an epic but hilarious fail it’d be

      Better yet, stolen, seeing how unsecure it is.

    I never believe in these digital currencies. Call me old-schooled, but whenever I have chances, I always exchange my cash with gold bars, as my investments. Because I believe, the real currency in the world that always in stable value is real gold. No matter what happens, be it world war, apocalypse, or massive global economic recession, gold will always be valuable. Always. Gold was the best currency in the ancient era, is the best currency in this modern era, and will still be the best currency in the future.

      Plus you can’t destroy it. Bitcoin on the other hand…

        …can’t be destroyed either because the data is stored in the blockchain.

    Bitcoin is already obsolete. Better cryptos are coming out everyday. Get used to it.
