It Came for eBay Hell: Beware of the Flying Ferrari F40 Replica

We would have probably passed this one up if it weren’t for the rather…ahem…artistic – in a primitive sort of way, photoshoped images that the seller uploaded on eBay beginning with the Ferrari F40 replica pictured flying on an American highway with a bunch of cop cars on its tail.

And there’s more where that came from including a shot of the Italian classic-wannabe hovering behind a Bugatti Veyron and alongside a Nissan GT-R. Priceless indeed…

Long time readers will have probably already figured out that this F40 clone was built on a Pontiac Fiero V6.

The car is listed for sale in the United Kingdom with a ‘buy it now‘ price of £9,000 or about US$13,800 / €11,100.
