You must think that the buyer was crazy, as the Fiat 500
can be bought in the dealer
for about £10,000. Why would someone pay £200,000 for one? The car was sold at an auction
last week for the benefit of the ARK (Absolute Return for Kids)
charity. The auction raised a total of £25 million at a gala reception in the Royal Naval College, Greenwich, England and the car wasn't just any 500. This was one of four specially designed and painted versions created by English artist Tracey Emin. The work, entitled 'Dark, Dark, Dark', was among lots which included diamonds, a safari holiday, a speaking role in actress Uma Thurman's next film, Eloise in Paris
, use of a luxury yacht, fashion pieces and other works of art. Still, £200,000 for a Fiat 500 is a lot.
