Dotcom, who legally changed his last name in 2005, founded several Internet companies and lived all over the world.

However, in 2012, Dotcom’s home was raided at the request of US authorities and this pink Caddy was taken along with other cars.

It has been in storage since then and was recently sold to a dealer who is placing it the auction with Trade Me.

The ad says: “This car was one of two Cadillacs bought in New Zealand by internet mogul Kim Dotcom in about 2010.

“This car has been restricted by the government for a decade and ended up in my possession a few days ago.

‘The car will come free of any mechanical problems.

“Minor oil leaks are to be expected with any classic car of this era and are to be expected even after a rebuild.

“I will include a drip tray for the buyer :)”

The auction has another nine days to run and the bid is already around 60,000 euros.

The car is painted in the same shade of pink that Elvis favors in his Caddys
