SEBASTIAN, Fla., Sept. 23 (UPI) -- A Florida man who put his custom-built car, dubbed the "Extra Terrestrial Vehicle" up for sale on eBay said the vehicle sold for $100,000.

Mike Vetter of Sebastian said he set out to create a unique vehicle and the result features a 270 horsepower engine, Lamborghini doors, a Ferrari-style body, an LED lighting system under the car that changes color and a front-mounted camera to avoid hitting curbs, the Orlando Sentinel reported Monday.

Vetter said he made sure the vehicle had a back seat so his 6-year-old daughter could ride along.

"I'm not going to drive a car and leave my wife and baby at home," Vetter said.

Vetter said he listed the car on eBay and it was purchased by a New Jersey exotic car dealer for $100,000.

Vetter said his company, MTV Concepts, made seven previous ETVs, but the most recent was the only one with rear seat space, a manual transmission and a super-charged motor. He said the previous models were sold to athletes, private companies and entrepreneurs.

He said he decided to sell the most recent version to fund his next project, which he called a "highly-customized limousine, which will be the first one on the planet of its kind."
