Charlie Sheen Puts Custom-Made Car on eBay
Charlie Sheen’s bulletproof custom-made car has been listed on eBay, with the star selling it because he’s “done dodging bullets.”
The Maybach, a luxury car by Mercedes-Benz, was built to cater to Sheen’s every need, and it was put on the auction site on Saturday for a starting price of a mere $200.
However, the listing was soon changed, and the price currently stands at $240,500 after 145 bids on Sunday. It is still a bargain considering a custom-built Maybach costs in the region of $400,000, editors at TMZ report.
The car, bought by Sheen in 2009, is black and has 27,000 miles on the odometer, according to the eBay listing.
Sheen’s reason for selling the car is not immediately clear, with the star apparently telling TMZ writers he is “done dodging bullets. An expired fear mongering caucus lost their vote.”
The actor also posted a rambling message referring to the sale of the vehicle on Twitter on Saturday, writing: “It’s a sad glimpse into global entropy, when the sale of my car, can defocus a drowning & gasping social Herderian zeitgeist…”
The seller who listed the Maybach on eBay goes by the username of hobbs_1000, and he has told potential buyers he is auctioning it on behalf of the former Two and a Half Men star.
He wrote in the listing description, “I am a friend of the seller and he does not see the messages that are sent. The car is still with the owner and I am not a car dealer. The winner of the auction will meet with the owner for the sale if needed.”
