Cars are looked at both as essential commodities and luxury. People who can afford to splurge a million or two on unnecessary belongings generally look for the pricey cars available on eBay. From time to time, eBay kept featuring some of the most extravagant cars, which may or may not be worth the price; however, they definitely made heads turn. Some cars are priced high not for their features, capability or design, but for their history of ownership. The car collectors and automobile frantic have never been daunted by economic crisis. They always manage to survive while setting newer records at eBay car auctions.
1. Kate Middleton’s VW Golf
The VW Golf once used by the now Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton and Prince William, has been put up on Ebay by Sonny Brazil. Though this car was purchased for £10,818, in 2011, he has put it up for a reserved price of £20,000. Surely, he is trying to cash on the royalty link that this car has. However, Sonny’s plans of getting easy bucks have not worked as no one has shown any interest in purchasing the car yet. The sterling silver cufflinks found in the car by Sonny were also supposed to be put on sale but later on, he decided to return them to the Middleton family.
2. 1959 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder
One of the most coveted models created by Ferrari, the 250 GT California Spyder was auctioned for $3.26 million in Ebay. This car features a 12-cylinder engine and exciting cloth top cover.
