    I do believe that unlike the 2013 Loch Ness version of this story it is legit now, truthful, the 1st and third photos are not photoshop...but if I were the chap buying it I would not have said a word to anybody until the car was back north of the Mediterranean, better not to tempt fate...best of luck to him to get it home, I look forward to a more detailed account after that...maybe this can be my next article, a wonderful tall to tell, hopefully not a tall one:)

    Same thing... my first impression was that the pictures were a scale model but we are not the first of april and the front of the car still wearing the second style trident (different from the one when the car was exhibited in the shows or at the factory).

    Good morning,

    The source referred to in post #4 is a two bit website BUT I just saw that it is copied and pasted from Octane magazine's current issue and they certainly would not have printed such news unless it was properly verified and authenticated.

    Now we just have to wait and see if the Saudi customs give the buyer any hassle, hopefully it will soon be heading to the UK and undergo a sympathetic restoration...
