When we saw the suburban Detroit dealer Auto Europe advertise a rare $800,000 1965 Shelby Mustang GT on Craigslist, we thought it would be a high water mark for quite some time. It was until today. We learned Specialty Sales, a San Francisco-area dealer, has listed a Bugatti Veyron for the jaw-dropping sum of $1.3 million.
We placed a call to Specialty Sales to make sure this wasn't one of those oh-so-funny Craigslist scammers and spoke with sales associate Bill. Bill told us that yes indeed the car was for real and one of many cars he'd be happy to sell us if we came down to their showroom. The Veyron has been at Specialty for about four days now and listed nearly as long, though Craigslist isn't the only place it's being advertised. According to our sales associate, hopes are high the car will move within the next few days as the offers have been rolling in, but none to their liking. We suspect that may be a result of pitching a $1.3 million car at folks used to low-balling owner-sellers on their $1,250 1985 Chevy Camaro that ran when originally parked.
