Auction house Sotheby's is selling Steve Jobs’ old BMW Z8. 

According to CNBC, Jobs ordered the BMW Z8 when it was first mass-produced in the early 2000s. The car’s sleek style and elegant design has also made it more valuable over the years. 

According to Sotheby’s website, Jobs bought the car after Oracle CEO Larry Ellison convinced him that its design and engineering reflected his work.
