Guess What the Winning Bid Was on Justin Bieber’s ‘First Ferrari’
Justin Bieber bid adieu to his old blue Ferrari at an auction over the weekend, but its selling price was a comparable consolation prize.
According to TMZ, Bieber sold his 2011 Ferrari 458 at the Barrett-Jackson collector car auction in Scottsdale, Arizona for $434,500. Autotrader states that the base price of the vehicle “hovers right around $225,000.”
“I’ve had it for roughly two years now. And it was my first Ferrari,” said Bieber. “I have to say goodbye to my baby! … I’m gonna leave a pair of my old Calvins in there.”
The highest bidder also walked away with two tickets to one of Bieber’s U.S. shows.
The auctioneer and Bieber both noted the rough patches in the car’s history, like when it was hit by a paparazzo on an L.A. freeway and when another paparazzo was struck and killed by a car when it was following Bieber’s friend Lil Twist, who was driving the vehicle.
