    Anyone knows anything about this car? The vin # ZFFLA12B000052463. It hasn't moved and has been for sale on eBay a few times already.

    Got a link? If in the US, no DOT/EPA papers would be a problem, and, even if it has those papers, it could be "unconverted" in a way that would make it expen$ive to return it to an emission-tested area.

    The best 308 QV GTB in the US was on the market a couple of months ago. I'm not sure if it's sold or not but IMO, it's the best one of all of them. Miles aren't low, but neither is the care it's been given.

    Good example of how not to write an effective ad for selling a euro version in the US ;)

    Shame they put a hole in the rear bonnet...

    US bumpers, US-style black vents, US corners, and something odd with the defroster vents - I think the dash has been out for something. But it looks like the front grill is still the euro grill, just hidden behind the bumper. Engine lid is correct, mirrors correct. Twin rear fogs usually indicate a UK-market car, but I think there were a couple other LHD markets with the same requirement. It looks like a nice car, really rare in the US, but would take some work to put it right. Still I like the bids, prices are going up!

    I'm definitely tracking this one, with 4 days to go and 19 bids it's just under $46k. Seems like a pretty good benchmark for these cars.

    My 84 Euro GTS QV was delivered new to Jersey, Channel Islands, a British Crown dependency. It has the black vents on the hood (Rosso Corsa car) and the twin rear fog lights, and is LHD (Jersey roads have you drive on the left like UK), and the original speedo/odo measure in miles like the UK. The only point being that the black vents were factory spec on some Euro 308s!

    The auction ended at $53,100.00 but no guarantee yet it sold.

    Strong price, hope it actually goes through. People say these are anomalies, but we're seeing more and more of them lately. I think the market is definitely improving.
