There was this guy once, who was trying to sell his two-story house in Neville's Cross, Durham, UK. It had been on the market for quite some time, with very little interest, despite several price drops, so the guy decides to throw in his 1998 Ferrari 355 to coax in more buyers.

We don’t really know whether that guy managed to sell his house, but what we do know is that another guy is doing the same thing, but with a car that’s a quite a bit more special, even more so than a Ferrari 355. The house in question is a traditional-looking thing, worth around $1.15- (€0.93-) million, and to spice things up, the owner is throwing in his soon-to-be-delivered Tesla Model S.

What can we say, other than the fact that it’s rather pointless, as the Model S in question could have gone to somebody who actually wanted it, and it’s kind of silly to give away a car with the house, instead of just detracting the car’s value from the house’s. Modern marketing techniques like this one shouldn’t work. But then again, they are – this piece of news is all over the web, so whoever thought it up definitely deserve at least some credit. They even put up a website for it.
