You Can Now Buy Steve Jobs' Old BMW For Thousands More Than It's Worth


Step 1: Buy car. Step 2: ? Step 3: Tech millions.

It’s just a fact of life that cars owned by celebrities will always cost more than cars owned by normies. For example, take this 1995 BMW 325i convertible with 138,000 miles on it. On the surface it seems like a well-maintained Bimmer that could maybe go for $3,000 to $4,000 on Craigslist, if the owner has all of the receipts for the maintenance and upgrades he mentions in the ad. So why is this BMW selling for $15,000 and what makes it so damn special? This BMW was—pause—once owned by Steve Jobs.

Yes, Steve Jobs of Apple and turtleneck fame. The current (and third) owner has California DMV documents that indicate the car was purchased new by Laurene Powell Jobs, the late Steve Jobs’ wife. Now the current owner knows he is asking for a lot of money and says so in his ad. He’s hoping to find a Steve Jobs’ fan who wants a prized collector item. He’s also doing this for the “thrill of trading up.” Yeah, he’s accepting trades of “newer vehicles, art, timepieces or other collectibles” in addition to cash. If you want a shortcut to startup success then we recommend buying this BMW and driving around the San Francisco Bay Area until inspiration strikes.
