Bitcoin is the hot new currency amongst uber nerds It’s virtual, meaning it only exists within the Interwebs and so can’t be used to bulk out your leather wallet.
However, if you are a car freak with a huge amount of Bitcoins burning a hole in your online account, then here are a few things you can buy for your Bitcoins
If your car has Wiki in the name, wouldn’t you be worried about it leaking? The
Wikispeed SGT01automobile incorporates open-source software and scrum
development techniques at the heart of its design and to run. The manufacturers
brag about the fact that it has NOTHING in it. No cup holders, no roof, no lockable
boot, just an iPhone dock. But you can buy it with Bitcoins. Here is what Forbes has to say about it
VINTAGE RUSSIAN DOCUMENTS
Imagine the look on the Parking Enforcement Officer’s face when they check your
windscreen for a resident’s permit and sees this historical USSR document. They will
probably smile with bemusement before administering an enormous fixed penalty
charge. Yours for only 0.199 BTC (which is currently about £30). Check out the auction here
A DOORLESS MERCEDES
Ok, so it is slightly beat-up, missing a door, features a few dramatic dents and seems
to more bin-bag than car, but this Mercedes 2002 CLK430 does have a really clean
interior. Perhaps they used the rubbish bag door to have a bit of a tidy up before the
sale. This primo vehicle is available for sale on Craigslist, with the vendor accepting
16 Bitcoins for the keys (or roughly £2500).
SOLAR CAR OVEN
Over at Survivalfood.com they accept Bitcoins. And as None of us are eating properly these days, especially when we are on the go. Chocolate bars,

bodies to satisfy our needs while in motion. So why not take the time to prepare a
proper delicious meal? This solar powered oven is reaches temperatures of 400 F
and can easily roast a whole quail. Delicious!
GLOW IN THE DARK SKULL GEARSTICK

this super, though scary, skull. It not only accurately represents to interior of the
human head, but it also eerily illuminates in darkness. Just don’t forget all about it

causing you to get frightened and swerve into a verge or copse. And a steal at 25
cents or 0.001059 BTC.
AK-47 KEYRING FOR CAR KEYS
Tired of that boring old key-ring, possibly featuring images of friends and family?
Yes, it is all very pleasant, but couldn’t it be slightly more ballistic. This authentic
looking killing machine will surely add a little vigour when you’re turning over the
engine on a cold day. But just so we’re clear, it doesn’t actually fire, it’s purely for
decoration. Incredibly, it’s 0.31BTC, which at current exchange rates is nearly fifty

propelling cockroach. Sure to elicit screams and turn stomachs no matter where it’s
placed. Just let the little fella free and the sun will make it shimmy, move and waggle
its disgusting feeler things. Surely that is worth 0.03461 BTC?

aggressive way you are staring at me. So you need to check those emails, Tweets
and funny YouTube videos no matter where you are. This handy device will affix
your tablet right in front of you for handy access. When you’re parked of course,
don’t do that stuff when you’re moving. Only 0.1068 BTC. Bargain!
Though they are not advertised as such, these mini-cannons could easily be placed
upon your dash to add a distinct air of medieval classiness. Except that I’m sure it’s
completely illegal and you shouldn’t do it. Especially as they actually use gunpowder
and fire pellets. But if you did sidle up to another vehicle on the motorway and they
also had a dash-mounted mini-cannon, a pretty entertaining pirate style battle could ensue.
