Yup, you definitely don’t read that everyday. The thought of your own private island seems like something out of a fairy tale. But for some people that is a reality. Back in 2013 there were reports that a man from Florida, named Emilio, put an offer on Craigslist for his $1,000,000 private island for a straight up trade of a Ferrari Enzo. Well Apparently nothing came of that offer because he recently popped up again with the same offer, only this time for a Porsche 918.
When he was asked about why he was looking for a supercar trade versus just selling the undeveloped land and he simply replied, because its easier. He also went on to say that the reason for switching to the 918 over the Enzo or La Ferrari was that the 918 could be used as a daily driver much easier than the other cars in the same category. He said he owns a 911 and uses it all the time and he figures it will carry over to the 918. Which according to everything we have researched on the topic, the 918 does appear to be the easiest and most comfortable to drive.
Emilio said he wouldn’t be apposed to making the trade for a McLaren P1 if an offer presented itself, but for now his fixated on the 918. So if you happen to have a 918 sitting in your garage collecting dust (shame on you) and you have always wanted your own private island, this is the perfect match for you. Apparently he will take $1,000,000 cash also if you don’t have the car, but still want the island. Me personally, i’d probably take the car.
