Wednesday 29th November 2017 15:57 News Oldham Posted by Tom Greggan

Is the one thing missing in your life a gold Rolls-Royce? Have you got a spare £117,995? Then this rare Rolls-Royce Ghost could be yours… but you won’t be paying in sterling!

The lavish gold vehicle, which is being sold through a private seller on Auto Trader, is the first Rolls-Royce for sale to accept payment in Bitcoin only.

It comes complete with 360 degree overhead camera system, active cruise control, automatic breaking, free view television and claims to be the only Rolls-Royce on the market with a rear refrigerator and champagne flutes.

This gold Rolls-Royce Ghost is on sale in Oldham for £117,995 but the seller wants payment in Bitcoin!

Powered by a 6.6-litre engine, the vehicle boasts eye-catching gold bodywork an extravagant interior and features 007 within its number plate; making it the perfect car for a Royal wedding.

But if Prince Harry, or in fact anyone interested, want to snap up the car, you’ll need to get your cryptocurrency out, as the owner of the vehicle is trading solely in Bitcoin; making it a UK first for Auto Trader and an interesting move for the online car selling business overall.

Speaking about his choice to trade in such a niche way, the vehicles owner, based in Oldham, said: “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”. 

Auto Trader Editorial Director, Erin Baker, 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, it’s a huge trend and currently holds a high value. That said, Auto Trader won’t be releasing a ‘search by Bitcoin’ function anytime soon. Our focus is very much on our ‘search by monthly payment’ product that launches next month for car buyers.”
