    208s were 308 bodies with small (2 litre) engines built to escape higher taxation in the domestic Italy market on larger engines. Less powerful, less well equipped, less desirable. I'm not sure why someone would want one when there are 308s around. Some dealers try to upsell them as "rare". More expertise on the 308 section.

    Isn't the price too low ? Pictures look to be Europe (eg text on door)

    Yes, seems very low. Maybe a typo, but then there are no pictures of the motor. j/k ;)

    The writing on the door is in Dutch and roughly translates to "Customers Suppliers".

    Why would you pay a shipping company for the purchase of something they are shipping? You pay the shipping company to ship!! Scam all day long.

    59 is far more ball park. If you are interested might be worth contacting Stephan at Redbay cars and seeing if he can have a look for you etc.
