Let's get one thing straight: Berkshire Hathaway CEO and extremely randy individual Warren Buffett did not have relations in the car you have the opportunity to bid on later this week. That's not because a Cadillac DTS with beige leather seats isn't an extremely sensual vehicle or because women don't go crazy for automatically dimming side mirrors. It's just that, in your 80s, things are less flexible than they used to be. But oh, if he'd gotten his hands this puppy some 60-odd years ago? Hoo-boy, the stories it could tell. Stories of heavy petting. Stories of "churned butter." Stories of "Is that the gear shift or...?" Trust him when he says, a young Buffett would've put some serious miles on this thing.
The last car Buffett sold off, a Lincoln Town Car, went for $70,000 in 2006, or roughly three times its ordinary value. This time, Buffett is auctioning a beige 2006 Cadillac DTS. The DTS is a roomy, comfortable front-wheel drive car powered by a 275-horsepower V8 engine...The car is a "cream puff," Buffett told CNNMoney in a phone interview. "If I were a used car salesman, this would be a cinch for me to sell," he said. The Cadillac, with only 20,000 miles on it, has leather in the interior with heated and cooled power seats, automatically dimming side mirrors, a parking sensor system and it is equipped for satellite radio. Nothing particularly memorable ever happened in the car, Buffett said. "If I was 16 or 17 I would have had a few memorable moments it the car," he said in jest.
