The first automobile purchase with the virtual Bitcoin has happened right here in Southern California.

The Lamborghini Newport Beach dealership in Orange County’s Costa Mesa made the announcement that they sold a used Tesla Model S in exchange for the aforementioned Bitcoin.

In a blogpost the dealership announced: “Lamborghini Newport Beach is proud to announce that we are fully capable of accepting Bitcoin as legal tender for vehicles. We are excited to opening the door to this new currency.”


General Manager Nick Jones made the sale, and handed the vehicle over to a Floridian customer for 91 Bitcoin, or $103,000.
