Lamborghini tops list of most expensive vehicles sold on eBay Motors in 2016

There is no shortage of interesting vehicles for sale on eBay Motors. This year we covered some special one-of-a-kind vehicles offered for sale on the marketplace, including the Scorpion Art Car and the Jellyfish 12000 Mutant Vehicle, both built for the annual Burning Man summer desert celebration. Bruce Springsteen’s iconic 1957 Chevy convertible was also recently listed on eBay Motors. The site isn’t only for unique vehicles. You’ll find a wide range of vehicles of all types, ages, and conditions.

eBay Motors provided Digital Trends with a list of 20 of the most expensive vehicles that not only were listed on the online marketplace and auction site, but actually sold. They range from luxury sports cars and motorcoaches to small airplanes. There’s even a project vehicle, a GM Futurliner waiting for a full frame-up restoration.

According to eBay, the online marketplace and auction site has 165 million active buyers globally, and at any time there are approximately 1 billion live listings on the site, 81 percent of which are new. In the U.S., a car or truck is purchased on eBay Motors every five minutes, while three vehicle parts or accessories are sold every second.

If you’re thinking about shopping for a vehicle on eBay, the site’s Vehicle Purchase Protection (VPP) protects against certain losses associated with fraud, up to a maximum amount of your purchase price paid not exceeding $100,000, which means none of the 20 vehicles above would be fully covered. Because remote buyers often want an objective, knowledgeable inspection, eBay partners with WeGoLook for on-site inspections for a small fee.
