OG Pokémon fans will surely remember the Pikachu Volkswagen Beetle. In 1998, Nintendo partnered with Volkswagen to have ten of these cars produced. They were used in various Pokémon events and promotions over the years, then eventually given away as contest prizes.

Just recently, one of those rare Pikachu bugs went up for sale on Facebook Marketplace in Madison, Wisconsin. The vehicle is being listed for $125,000 with 170,000 miles on it. In addition to being a functional car, it also comes with a remote that can make trigger four different Pikachu sounds. Unfortunately, some aspects have been changed from the original model, including the engine, wheels, and some decals. The originally included playable N64 hookup has also been removed.

Speaking to The Drive, current owner Kerry K. says that she originally bought the car for her two sons, but took a liking to it herself eventually. It’s a manual car, so buyers will need to be able to drive stick if they’re serious about driving the thing!
