A person is selling on eBay what he claims to be the beloved motorhome of Lars von Trier, acclaimed director of such family friendly hits as The Idiots and Antichrist.
The vehicle is a 1992 Dethleffs Advange, with 74,520 miles. The “buy it now” price is $150,000.
Von Trier is known to have a deathly fear of flying, adding some credibility to the listing, which describes the vehicle as: “Lars´ only way of travel for a period of more than 10 years…” Yet not only was it a means of transportation, but also an incubator of creativity. Adds the listing, “Some of Lars´ biggest ideas went from idea to script in this vehicle.”
One downside, though: the smell. The director states, “Looking forward to get rid of the smell of Diesel. Hope a potential buyer likes this smell, as Diesel has been poured over the floor several times.”
Apart from the odor, the disturbing and baffling pouring of fuel inside one’s own travel and living quarters, and of course the price, it’s totally worth it because it’s not only a vehicle, it’s also a home. In other words, it’s a house you can race. Plus, it was Lars von Trier’s racehouse. Even better. And if you’re a fan of his, this is your chance to own the very place that may have inspired his scenes of appalling torture, mutilation, and graphic Willem Dafoe sex. A total win-win!
