For us, eBay is a place to buy vintage concert T-shirts and discount headphones. For others, it’s apparently a place to buy luxury cars for hundreds of thousands of dollars. 

This week, eBay released its annual roundup of the “Most Interesting and Expensive Purchases” made on the site. There are the collector’s items you’d expect, like the comic book where Spider Man first appears which sold for $32K, and an autographed Tom Brady trading card that went for a preposterous $400,100. But of the top 20 most expensive purchases, 12 were cars.

Here’s a list of the top 10 most expensive cars that changed hands, as cited by eBay, and sold between January 1 and December 6, 2019:

  1. 2015 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster: $349,800
  2. 2019 Lamborghini Urus Bianco Icarus: $245,995
  3. 2005 Ford GT: $220,000
  4. 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class: $219,000
  5. 2019 Lamborghini Huracan LP 580-2: $209,900
  6. 2012 Lamborghini Aventador Two-Door Coupe: $200,000
  7. 2019 Porsche 911:$199,000
  8. 2009 Lamborghini Murcielago: $190,000
  9. 2013 Ferrari 458 Italia: $185,000
  10. 2014 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder: $174,995

Lamborghini is by far the most popular marque, nabbing six of the spots. But while eBay didn’t disclose the buyers or sellers for these luxury vehicles, it should be noted that these are not all consumer-to-consumer transactions; dealerships also sell vehicles on the site, which is certainly less sketchy than forking over $300K to “speed_demon13” via the internet. 

Despite the gargantuan sum paid for the 2015 Aventador, which defies the logic of ecommerce, it was not the biggest ticket item sold in 2019 — not by a long shot. 

That accolade goes to a private lunch with Warren Buffett, an experience which has been auctioned off annually for the last 20 years to benefit San Francisco’s Glide Foundation. The anonymous winner set a new record by bidding — are you sitting down? — $4,567,888. 

Is anyone going to tell the bidder Buffett doesn’t discuss investments at these lunches, or should we?
