While many GTA Online players are so obsessed with becoming unfathomably rich that they'll spend months relentlessly executing daring heists and dangerous sales missions with their dedicated crews and bizarre buddies, few have ever decided to try and augment their experience via Facebook Marketplace.
After all, unless you’re looking for a copy of GTA 5 badly repackaged to try and convince people it’s GTA 6, you’re probably not going to find anything worthwhile on the platform.
However, it seems that this isn’t the only type of GTA-related scam being tried out on the marketplace, as one bewildered player on Reddit has spotted.
Did you ever think you’d see a car from GTA Online on Facebook Marketplace?
This outrageous find is the subject of a recent thread in the GTA Online subreddit, which began with a post from the player in question, user breezy23d2, who shared an image of an in-game supercar up for sale on Facebook Marketplace for $750,000, with the listing trying to pass it off as a “2021 Ferrari sports car/special edition.”
Despite the listing making the car out to be a bargain, with only 300 miles on the clock, one previous owner and, strangest of all, an automatic gearbox, breezy23d2 wasn’t convinced, captioning their post: “I hope this person isn't seriously trying to make money off of this.”
Their fellow players shared a similar level of disbelief, with user FormulaZR saying: “If someone is dumb enough to think that's a Ferrari, they deserve to lose the money.”
Some even pointed out that, while the car is being advertised as a Ferrari, possibly due to its paint colour, it’s actually a Progen T20, an in-game car modelled after the McLaren P1.
Meanwhile, others responded more sarcastically, with user xJustYourBoi quipping: “That's a steal! It normally goes for 2.2 million (in-game dollars).” and AHUenthusiast909 joking: “I already sent the money. Do you think it's fake? Oh darn it.”
On the other hand, user BroknLuck2077 suggested that this isn’t the first GTA car to end up on Facebook Marketplace, saying: “Someone did the same thing in my area with the new Ruiner.”
We’ve reached out to the car’s mysterious seller via Facebook, mainly to see if we can actually purchase the automobile for ourselves, and will update this article if they get back to us.
In the meantime, regardless of whether you’ve ever accidentally paid three-quarters of a million dollars for a virtual automobile, make sure to follow us for more GTA Online and GTA 6 updates as new vehicles and more arrive.
