World’s most expensive sheep just sold for the price of a Rolls-Royce Phantom 8.

A sheep, named Double Diamond, was sold for an eye-popping record price of 350,000 guineas — or around $490,000 (N189.8 million) at an auction in Scotland last week.





The bidding war, which started at 10000 guineas (about $13,000), escalated quickly until an agreement was reached for the sheep to be shared between three farms.

The previous record for one sheep was $307,000 (N118.9 million) for a sheep named Deveronvale Perfection in 2009.

One of the winning bidders told reporters that :

“It’s just like every other business — horse racing or the cattle business,”

“Every once in a while something special comes along and yesterday an extra special Texel turned up. Everyone wanted a piece of it.”

To put the price in perspective, a brand new Rolls-Royce Phantom 8 luxury sedan has a base price of $450,000 without options. But bespoke options could push it to an average order price of $600,000.

The ultra-luxurious Phantom 8 features rear suicide doors and a Panoramic Sky Lounge LED roof that lights up when it gets dark. Power comes exclusively from a twin-turbocharged 6.75-litre V12 engine.
