Since then it has been in storage and was recently sold to a dealer who is discontinuing it auction with Trade Me.

The ad reads: “This car was one of two Cadillacs bought in New Zealand by internet mogul Kim Dotcom circa 2010.

“This car was then held by the government for a decade and ended up in my possession a few days ago.

“The car is delivered without any mechanical problems.

“Small oil leaks are to be expected in every classic car of this era and also after a conversion.

‘I will include a drip tray for the buyer :)’

The auction is still running for nine days and the bid is already around £60,000.
