    Check out this 512BBi for sale at Checkered Flag motors and on ebay now...

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=6212&item=2483425651&rd=1


    It has 460hp and only weighs 2500lb! It also has a 6-speed transmission!


    Wouldnt you think a place like Checkered Flag would make at least a small attempt at NOT being total morons when it comes to selling such a car?

    The price seems reasonable, but how can you believe anything they say about the car when they clearly have no clue.

    I can see 460 hp as there is a road BB up here with a BBLM engine but 2500# w a full interior is pure BS, so is the 6 speed box

    Not that Ferrari ever exaggerated the specs of Boxer, of course...!!

    (188mph top speed, anyone.?) :)

    i wonder how many of us have pinged the seller asking/ridiculing about the weight and hp figures. poor guy

    seems like a great price. i'd assume 75k, maybe even 79 if it had a major service.

    group concensus on that?

    Seems to me that those guys count reverse as a speed.

    I have no idea how the weight at 2500 and 460hp. This car looks stock, and pretty nice to me. Buy it now 69k.

    I'm not sure about the claims as they conflict with everything I've seen and read. One thing is for sure, these guys have a future writing press material for the factory with imaginations like that.
