    Sounds very fishy to me. A grey market car calling it an 88 with a January 86 VIN. Has TRX wheels proper for a January 86 car but with low mirrors?

    It also has ugly seat covers covering the trashed seats. 3500 miles my butt. Car is a dog.

    has this car been converted to a dual low mirror? Also, what are those two metal things by the front cylinder plenum intake? I don't recognize those. It looks to have an aftermarket alarm/radar detector of some sort.

    I bought a 1986 Testarossa at a Barrett Jackson auction. Never again.

    Must have been. Dual mirror cars came out much later.

    Its has a bunch of stereo and radar crap.

    Don't know what metal things you are asking about. Except for the usual federalization butchery I see nothing unusual under the hood except it is wat too dirty for a 3500 mile car. European version had a different fuel injection system. You may be looking at a component US cars don't have.

    If you are going to lie about a car to sell it at least try and make it believable. .

    115,000 miles is far more believable than 3500.

    Be interesting to see the importation documents and see what those say. That VIN is listed in Mathais Urbans serial number book and cars that spent their life hidden away like a 32 year old car with 3500 miles is would not have found its way in there.

    It's an early euro TR with an F113A engine (K-Jet without Lambda and with WURs) -- very similar to a BB512i, but with a better ignition system ;). The quality (or ill-quality) of the US federalization would be a concern.

    And thats always a concern. Price is typically the most important part of that operation.

    It figures that this car would be a scam as well ! A lot of crooks out there selling 30 year old cars. Have yet to see an honest one, actually :(

    Not shredding the car - it is what it is.

    Shredding the owner for misrepresentation.

    Odd that the barret Jackson auction would have such a large disconnect between the car and information regarding it

    If the info shown above is correct, it reflects poorly on BJ.

    That said however, I have never heard BJ claim (???????) that they research and verify the cars they sell.
