TORONTO - Someone is paying $40,000 to drive away with Justin Bieber's autograph.

The last minute-bid this afternoon was enough to win the eBay auction for a car signed by the Canadian pop sensation.

Bieber had autographed the red 2012 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0 Turbo over the Christmas holidays.

The money raised by the auction is to be used to fix up the skateboard park in Stratford, Ont., Bieber's hometown.

Bidding for the car had stalled earlier today at just over $30,000 which was less than the reserve amount — the minimum the seller would accept.

But the winning bid came through in the final minutes of the auction.

The identity of the winning bidder was not immediately known.

Bieber had dropped by the Hyundai dealership during the holidays and signed the car in two places — the dashboard and the sun visor.
