    One of them smells like incense and camel farts. That lowers the value.

    Plus it might be a little more dangerous to pick up and drive home.

    With 150 miles on the motor, it hardly could have picked up too much of a camel smell. And for a price tag difference of $800,000 I think I could have it airlifted to my driveway and still have a few hundred thousand to spare.

    Make sure that auction's not run from an Internet Cafe in Romania!

    That's just too much money for an eBay deal! I'd take one from a reputable source.

    Do a search here for "Andrewgavi" he had two! He had a least one person vouch he was a real person!

    The english one looks a bit iffy as well... i'm really suspicious of anything like this anyway.. but..

    It says its in England

    - Then why has the car in the background of one of the pics not got a British numberplate??? (Brit rear plates are yellow background by law, not white like the pic)

    - Why are the pics crap?

    I'm just really suspicious of Enzos on ebay for the simple fact that if you can afford an Enzo you can afford to take a shed load of 5MP photos and host them on a website for people to view if they're interested.

    :)

    You got it brother!

    I'm so tired of the bottom feeders these cars attract.

    I'm negotiating now on my next one, from a 78 year old private owner!

    5,000 miles in twenty years!

    the whole thing seems like a crock of **** to me. the UK enzo has a bunch of bidders that don't have a very clean record. no s/n or vin # posted for it either. i dunno, unless i was Steve275, i wouldn't bother with something like that.

    Yup. See my post regarding the numberplates not being British either.

    It's probably someone thinking if they can get 2million or similar then they'll just buy an Enzo off automobile or similar that have a few Enzos for sale all the time.

    Very dodgy and theres no way i'd buy a car off FleaBay...

    i think ebay is becoming something for people who are frustrated (sellers) and jokers

    they are selling Ferrari enzo's on EBAY, (yes from mattel) ...????, f"&é'((§(-off

    go to : www.ferraribuy.com and you have

    17 ENZO'S for sale in Europe starting 655.000 euro
    and
    18 ENZO'S for sale in USA starting price 1.150.000 $

    all cars can be seen in dealership....

    so why pay more on ebay ?

    I don't believe one person in the world will buy his enzo on ebay, NEVER.

    that's my opinion, ebay auctions for such cars are jokes and sometimes dangerous to lose your money too.

    Well, at least the person in "Saudi Arabia" listed a serial number. Let's see:
    ZFFYT53AX40136154 =
    ZFF=Italy, Ferrari, Ferrari: got that correct
    Y=412 or 360; be kind, call it a 360 (see later proof of mfg date)
    T=Air bags, manl seat belt w/ pretensioner
    53=360 Spider & Spider F1
    A= LHD North America (T is Middle East)
    X= USA check digit
    4= 2004 model year
    0 = Assembly plant, will always be a "0" (zero)
    136154 = chassis number

    Draw your own conclusion.

    sorry, but we are talking about an ENZO, not a boxer.....and why wasn't it sold ?

    Enzo for 1.5 million dollar, you can have some boxers for that......

    by the way, the Testarossa in the other thread, was on ebay is retired....
    because 2 people selling the same car in 1 months on 2 continents was a little bit to much to be good....

    WARNING FOR EBAY......

    The 512 boxer, with carbs had travelled over 180,000KM, or 108,000 miles.

    Amazing! Still looked great, a little leather wear.

    Wouldn't go past $34K with a $50K reserve. No sale. Owner still has it!

    and the joke continues.....

    no bids for the arabian one at 800.000 $

    and 2 bids today in england, for 1.800.000 $, if they continue bidding like that, it will be a record price for an enzo in 2004 (lol)

    to be continued

    i actually found one of my cars on ebay but i didnt buy it there...though the day before i went to inspect it some crazy scammer stole the pictures and vin from the legit auction and as soon as the legit auction ended he tried to relist it making it look like the orignal seller, this scared me at first because i had a deposit on the car. over all ebay seems to get owrse and worse everyday when it comes to scams

    2.680.000 $

    so just a joke of course, the seller has a -1 on ebay....

    and i am sure that the seller and buyer are the same guy.

    just another scam on this stupid ebay site again.

    as some of us told, its getting worse.
