    Engine #1003.050 was owned by someone in Germany. I brokered the original engine of this car 3 years ago to a new owner in Germany.

    Many years ago the flywheel went off damaging the bellhouse seriously. It could not repaired in those days. Today thats not a problem anymore - and it was done perfectly.

    Here comes a photo of the refurbished engine block. Marked and clearly visible is the bellhouse that was repaired. This was done by the factory that designed the Phaeton-engine for VW and the engine-block for the Bugatti Veyron.

    Yes (...and this was a very stupid decision of the owner of #050!), and Mr. Postert sold it on via my help 2 years ago.
