The Hyundai Genesis Coupe pop star Justin Bieber signed and put on auction for charity sold late yesterday for $40,000.
Most of the time when a celebrity has something to do with cars, it means there’s a specialty line being made, like a Funkmaster Flex edition Ford Explorer – ugh! This wasn’t one of those cases. Bieber decided to sign the car’s dashboard in silver pen ink and set it up for sale on Ebay. The goal? Raising money for a good cause.
The cause in question? Well, the young lad wanted to fix up the skate park in his home town of Stratford, Ontario up in Canada. It didn’t look like the car would actually bring in the minimum bid he had hoped for, but at the last minute someone swooped in to scoop the car up, though we don’t know who.
Don’t be surprised if it shows up on an upcoming episode of something like MTV’s My Super Sweet 16 series. There really aren’t too many people willing to drop that much cash on a car that starts at $22,250 aside from a one percenter with a spoiled 15-year-old who’s crushing on the Biebs.

Have you got Bieber Fever? If so, you’ll want to bid on a Justin Bieber autographed car that’s going to be on eBay this Friday.
We know, it’s easy to make fun of all the Bieber fanatics out there, but the proceeds of this sale are going to a good cause. Beiber wants to raise money to refurbish a skate park in his hometown of Stratford, Ontario.
The car that’s been autographed is a 2012 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0 Turbo. Beiber took time out of his busy Christmas schedule when he was in town to sign the car, when he told Frank Sandola of Stratford Hyundai that he wanted the money raised from the auction to go to the skate park.
If you’re wondering where the teen idol signed his famous moniker, you’ll find it on the dashboard and the sun visor. If you’re interested, it goes up for auction this Friday, January 20 and will be up for 10 days. There’s no word if there will be a “Buy it Now” option, but we think it’ll do pretty well without it.
