ALBANY - A number of very big ticket items were auctioned off in Albany on Wednesday. While items at the auction included an old, rusted chain, a snowplow and a car without keys, the highlight was three cars. They included a Lamborghini, Porsche and BMW.
The cars were auctioned by New York State Office of General Services. The 2012 BMW 650 convertible was seized by the attorney general's Medicaid Fraud Unit. It sold for $30,500.
The 1986 Porsche 911 Turbo Carrera and 2007 Lamborghini seized by the DMV after each was separately reported stolen. The Porsche went for $46,000 and to a man from New York City. The Lamborghini, with 6,316 miles and valued at $120,000 went for $98,000 to a man from Clifton Park.
The question was why?
"It's a Lamborghini. It's the ultimate car." said Mark Carota, the buyer. "If you can own a world-class car for $100,000, that's a heck of a deal."
Carota runs Mark's Automotive in Clifton Park.
Three cars for a total of $174,500. The auctions go on periodically, held by New York State Office of General Services.
The rules are you have to pay for the item right there and you get it as-is.
