Man Attempting To Swap His Island For A Porsche 918 Spyder
Yes, you did read that right! Emilio Cirelli wants to swap his private island in Florida for a Porsche 918 Spyder. Emilio Cirelli is no stranger to this type of trade-in. You may recall he previously made a failed attempt to become the owner of a Ferrari Enzo in exchange for his private island. Not one to be defeated, Cirelli is trying for a second time, although this time he is asking for a Porsche 918 Spyder in exchange for his Florida-based island.
The advert is genuine and is currently displaying on ‘Racing Junk’. Cirelli is a car fanatic as you may have guessed, claiming he likes the car due to its practicality. Already the proud owner of a Porsche 911 Turbo S, he states;
“I believe there would be less maintenance, and it’s more drivable. It’s more of a car you could use daily. The others, after 5,000 miles you have to bring them in and have a $30,000 service.”
If unsuccessful in his bid, Cirelli is very selective about what he would accept in exchange for his 3 acre island. A LaFerrari and a McLaren P1 are the only other vehicles he would settle for.
The island, located close to the much-loved Daytona Beach, is currently a blank canvas, awaiting its new owner to make their mark. The value of the island is decreasing quickly however, which may affect the success of a swap. Its current value is $1 million, although it is expected to be considerably less in just a couple of years.
