Chinese entrepreneur buys BMW with small change

Employees at a Chinese car dealership spend six hours counting bundles of cash weighing 220lb. Employees of a Chinese car showroom were left flabbergasted this week after a woman marched into their shop and paid for a luxury BMW with small change.

The businesswoman, who was named only as Ms Li, reportedly turned up at a dealership in the city of Zhengzhou and used 100,000 small denomination bank notes to purchase the BMW 730Li. The wrinkled green notes – each worth one yuan or around 10p – came to a total of around £10,000 and weighed around 220lb.

In an interview with the Zhengzhou Evening Post, Jia Tinghai, the dealership’s marketing director, captured her reaction to the purchase in three words. “Oh my God,” she said. Ms Li told local media that because she was “often busy she had decided to keep the banknotes until she was able to spend them all at once when buying a car”.
