Put away your rare Pokemon and Candy Crush medals, high roller. A well-heeled punter has just taken the record for the most expensive in-app purchase ever and it’s not what you think.
What on Earth did he buy?
The fully restored model went on sale via the prestigious U.K motoring auction house, Coys of Kensington, with the company’s CEO Chris Routledge writing on the website: “[The buyer] was overjoyed to see the car of his dreams, and didn’t want to lose it. He was keen to quickly get in front of the queue, so a few days later he hit the ‘Buy Now’ button on Vero to guarantee the purchase, leaving two other collectors disappointed in his wake.”
So there you have it. The next time you’re thinking of cheaping out on a $3 Tinder boost, think of the guy who parted ways with $1 million instead. It might not score you a date but at least you’ll be out of pocket by a bit. Wait, what?
