Apple Pay used to buy a $1 million Aston Martin DB5

“What’s the most you’ve ever spent with Apple Pay? I’ll bet it’s nowhere near as much as $1 million,” Killian Bell reports for Cult of Mac. That’s how much one user spent to claim a 1964 Aston Martin DB5 that was recently auctioned off through Coys of Kensington.”

“The largest Apple Pay transaction to date could well be a vintage Aston Martin DB5 — the first historic vehicle to be sold through social media,” Bell reports. “The Vero app for iPhone was used to place bids on the car, which had been fully restored with a new engine, gearbox, and more.”

Bell reports, “The winning bid was £825,000 (just over $1 million), and the buyer paid with Apple Pay, according to a report from Columnm, which says the car ‘will remain the highest selling ‘in-app’ purchase via a social media platform for a little bit longer.'”
