A 4chan user has purchased a 2014 Lamborghini Gallardo using Bitcoin. The buyer spent 216.8433 bitcoins, or $209,995, on the yellow supercar.

Since then, and following subsequent press publicity, the dealership has received about 20 serious calls about people interested in purchasing cars using Bitcoins.
