    I was perusing the for sale section on the UK website PistonHeads, and came across a 360 with this dodgy engine bay pic, WTF!

    Do you think it'll catch on? :)

    Looks like a 16 year old owned the car....I'd rather have that car as the stickers could be pulled off faster than this motor could be cleaned up....if the motor looks this bad on the outside, imagine how bad things are on the inside, as I'd assume the car didn't have a careful owner. How could you as a dealer post a picture like this of an exotic high end car you are hoping to sell?? My guess given the seller's name, the car was a lease....essentially a long term rental- ugh!

    I have always thought it was pretty bad when some have an obvious advertisement on their front windscreen.... but this is simply dumb.
    What, was the owner tired of people confusing his car with a Corvette?

    Hey DT!

    Comon', admit it dude.... this is really YOUR car and youre just testing the waters on all of us! Right now you are feverishly scraping those stickers back OFF. :D


    Really though.... not sure I understand the thinking on this. I assume some wealthy kid got hold of a 360 and went crazy???? Can only imagine what the inside of the car looks like.

    What does the inside look like? Well, I want to remind everyone that Zippy asked...I wouldn't do this otherwise :) I'm assuming this is custom imitation suede (only the finest imitation), unless the camera is really bad and it's actually leather on the dash...

    I think he's trying to make it like a Challenge Stradale, but being as it's a standard 360 if I were a betting man I'd bet it looks a lot worse in person and is done with inferior materials. To me it detracts from the car's value to the tune of the cost to replace the interor with stock (to a standard 360) parts...
