Not only is Williams accepting Bitcoin as his source of payment, but when asked if he’d ship the car to Chile, he replied, “For the right amount of BTC I will hand deliver.”
A fresh Lamborghini will normally cost up to $200,000 or more than BTC 50. Even so, sales for this luxurious vehicle is growing. During the first nine months of 2018, Lamborghini sold up to 3,554 of its cars, compared to its 21.3% sold during 2017.

Offers for the luxury car came in rapidly, although a large percentage of them were trolls offering their own deals which Williams declined politely. Williams also back talked users who claimed he was gloating about selling his Lambo to risk purchasing Bitcoin. He’s gone off to admit to everyone that he wants to go all the way with BTC as the reason for selling his
