The Sebring is one vehicle series that the folks under the Pentastar would rather forget, as evidenced by the change of name on its facelifted replacement, the 200.
On the face of it, some customers share the feeling with Chrysler. Like this owner who transformed a 2003 Sebring Convertible V6 into a fairly accurate replica of the pre-facelift Bentley Continental GTC SuperSports cabriolet.
On the outside, that is, because once you check out the photos of the interior, there's no question about the pedigree or…lack thereof, something that the seller admits in his description of the car on eBay that follows below:
"2012 Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible Replica built on a 2003 Chrysler Sebring LXi convertible with a 2.7 V6. Runs and drives great and everything works. Ice cold a/c, power windows, locks, seat, convertible top, am/fm/cd stereo, brand new Dub 22" Chrome wheels with brand new tires which cost over $3000.
All real Bentley lights, emblems and exhaust tips. All lights work as the should (the factory xenons, high beams, reverse lights, tail lights, turn signals, tag lights) Brand new battery has been relocated to the trunk.
New brakes, radiator, a/c compressor, tranny replaced before build. Oil changed just done in the past 30 days.
The interior is all factory Sebring. It is leather, but the drivers seat has a couple tears and it does show wear and has some stains. This car is awesome and gets ALOT of attention. The car does need a real good cleaning as it sits most of the time in the garage. Also will need a good buffing. "
Last time we checked, the highest bid on eBay was US$20,619 with four days left (June 8) until the sale ends.
