Buy an Apple Watch, get a free second-hand car

The first Apple Watch pre-orders have started to be delivered, with many of those receiving the wearable looking to cash-in on the device’s exclusivity.

Of all the overpriced eBay-based Apple Watch peddlers out there, however, one markt0694 has to be our favourite.

Why? Well, this genius of a man is using his early Apple Watch arrival to help clear his drive of a second-hand Toyota Avensis estate car.

Wanting rid of the 1.8 litre Toyoto, which has a respectable 130,000 miles on the clock, the seller has made it a compulsorily free add-on to anyone looking to snap-up his Apple Watch.

Well, we say free, the bizarre bundle deal will set you back £950, a considerable mark-up on the Watch’s £339 retail price.

“Just delivered, unopened and sealed Apple Sport Watch 42mm Silver Aluminium with Green Strap,” the listing reads.

It adds: “Plus you get a Toyota Avensis estate with only 130000 miles, MOT,d until next year and load of service history.

“Collect in person, wear it today and drive away.”

Other than ‘used’, it is unclear what state the car, which is available alongside the Apple Watch as part of a collection only deal in Derby, is in.

If you’re interested, you might have to act fast, the Apple Watch and add-on is listed under a ‘Buy it Now’ basis.

Although today, April 24, is technically Apple Watch release day, the Moto 360 rival is not available for purchase in any Apple stores. What’s more, with online delivery times now pushed back to June, only the earliest of pre-orders are expected to be fulfilled anytime soon.

Apple Watch prices start at £299 for the 38mm Apple Watch Sport, rising to a staggering £13,500 for the top-of-the-line Apple Watch Edition.
