THE ONLY TENNIS WEBSITE

… you'll ever need

For Sale: one sweet blue BMW, no (racquet) dents

If you’re in Australia and in the market for a sweet ride with a stellar tennis pedigree, Nick Kyrgios can hook you up.

We have no idea why the 21-year-old Aussie took to Facebook to sell his car – the first car he ever bought. But here’s the pitch:

A few comments in (and the comments are pretty good), someone suggested he auction it off and give the proceeds to charity. Kyrgios seemed quite keen on that notion.

That’s a fairly serious purchase for 19-year-old’s first car. According to this, the retail price was north of $140,000 AU. Even more surprising? It’s a conservative four-door sedan; we’re not sure what we’d expect Kyrgios to be driving at that age, but not this!

In the meantime, a thought for the first cars we mere mortals bought at that age.

Most of them looked something like this (plus or minus a little duct tape and a few rust spots):

We’ll keep you posted on what happens.
