When it comes to car auction sites, it’s not really that shocking to see insanely high prices. Throughout the history of Bring A Trailer, there have been plenty of auctions that have seen crazy numbers in excess of six or even seven. However, not all auction sites carry cars of the same caliber as the others. A former celebrity-owned Lamborghini Aventador was sold at a fairly reasonable price.
This blue Lamborghini Aventador currently holds the record
This beautiful blue Lamborghini Aventador was recently sold on Autos and Auctions, and currently holds the record for the most expensive car sold at Autos and Auctions. The final hammer price for her was $270,000. It should be noted that two other auctions received higher bids. However, none of these auctions met their reserve, so they either didn’t sell or sold after the auction ended.
The 2012 Lamborghini Aventador started its life as a standard gray car. However, it now wears a more pronounced Miami Blue paint. According to the paragraph at the top of the page written by Cars and Bids founder Doug DeMuro, it’s actually paint, not a wrap. This is an expensive job!
However, the price of a paint job gets dull when you find out that the original owner was Chris Brown. According to TMZ, this is indeed Braun’s previous car, and he was the one who got the custom paint job done. Honestly, the color suits the glamor of the Aventador nicely. It’s always interesting to see what celebrities do with their supercars.
Paint isn’t the only modification. The listing indicates that it has modified the suspension components but does not explicitly detail what they are. Additionally, the car has a paint protection coating to help preserve Miami’s blue paint.
Overall, $270,000 is a good deal, considering TMZ reports that the second owner paid Chris Brown $300,000 for the car.
This Lamborghini is for sale again too
It seems that this Lamborghini buyer is somehow connected to Austin’s direct sales of cars in Austin, Texas, because this dealer is now selling this car.
It took a pretty big profit off the auction price as well, with an Austin dealer asking for $349,900. If you are looking to buy an Aventador, this is a good opportunity. You have some leverage in knowing what they paid for it.
The Aventador is clearly not a car to drop in. So, it makes sense to paint it loud and it can be spotted easily! It doesn’t mean that you really need to draw attention to it. The screeching V12 behind the seats making a whopping 691 horsepower should do a lot of attention grabbing on its own.
As mentioned earlier, this is not the highest bidding car in the history of motoring and auctions. However, it is the most expensive car already sold on the platform. Interestingly, the highest bid in automotive history and bidding is a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ, with a price tag of $557,000. Additionally, the Countach was bid for $390,000, and the Huracan EVO was bid for $281,500.
Now, we’re just waiting for the next record holder to come out of the woodwork! For now, keep scrolling to read about the cheapest car ever sold at Autos & Auctions!
