    A bmw dealership in new Zealand accidentally sells a 1994 bmw worth $2400,for $1. http://www.tecca.com/news/2012/08/09/bmw-sells-for-one-dollar/

    About 4 years ago I was able to get a SUV that was supposed to be sold for $18,000 for $9,000,because the person posting the ads online,put $9,000 instead. It was so funny when I showed the salesman the ad I printed out after he was saying it going to be $18,000 plus tax,title etc.

    I agree with Duffers here, great marketing from car dealers point of view for only $2,400 lol.

    If, as some say, it was a clever marketing tactic then I doubt that "someone" actually even won the car. It was probably a relative or someone related to the dealership. lol
