Bitcoins have been dominating financial headlines lately, and more and more retailers have begun to accept them as a form of payment. Even Virgin Galactic allows future astronauts to pay for space flight using bitcoins. There’s also a Subway location which will accept bitcoins as payment for sandwiches, and a number of online retailers will accept them as well. Now a dealership in California has accepted its very first payment in the digital currency. Perhaps fittingly, the buyer purchased a Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) Model S.

Used Tesla sold for bitcoins

The announcement was made on Lamborghini Newport Beach‘s company blog and spotted by Electrek. The auto dealer apparently happened to have one of Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA)’s Performance package Model S sedans in their inventory. Since Tesla sells its vehicles directly to consumers through its website, it’s a good bet that the vehicle was used.
