How to upgrade your car chassis from $5k to $10k with Crypto Coins
If you’re one of the lucky few that owns a 2016 Tesla Model S sedan, then you’ll be able to unlock the supercar with a few simple crypto-currency exchanges.
The crypto-backed vehicle was initially announced as a “first-ever” vehicle to be delivered to consumers through the Tesla Store in Los Angeles in December 2016.
But as the company began accepting the vehicle in November, the cryptocurrency world quickly caught up with the vehicle’s release date.
Tesla was soon selling the car for $20,000 on a pre-sale website and then sold for $35,000 and $40,000, respectively, in January 2017.
The car now stands at a total value of $35.5 million.
The CryptoCar’s price tag also made it the most expensive car in the world when the crypto-market value was measured back in February.
The $10,000 vehicle is available in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Peru, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Canada and Portugal.
It is priced at $55,000 in the UK and $70,000 elsewhere.
The crypto-car has a $1,000 price tag and can be unlocked by sending coins to a Bitcoin address.
The Tesla Store has a preorder page for the Tesla Model C car with the price set at $7,500.
A pre-order page also exists for the 2018 Tesla Model X SUV with a $8,000 pre-shipment fee.
But it is not clear if any of the Tesla cars will ship with the crypto cars pre-paid or if they will remain locked up until a later date.
Tesla is also offering a free “Tesla Car Upgrade Pack,” which will enable the vehicle to go from a base price of $7K to $25,000.
This is the first Tesla car upgrade pack available outside of the US, according to Tesla.
It can also be upgraded with “Tesla Certified Pre-Owned” parts or a “Tesla Service Center.”
The upgrade will add a 3.0-liter four-cylinder V6 diesel to the car, which Tesla says can “recover up to 33% of the total energy consumption of the vehicle.”
In addition, it will add $6,000 to the base price.
A “Service Center” option allows the vehicle owners to request a service and repair at a service center near them.
These services can include an installation, tune up and maintenance, repairs, and more.
The vehicle also comes with a Tesla Security Package, which is $20 per year.
