    There is no single owner 250 LM in the world.
    And not 25 but 32 units were built.
    No sane person would buy a 250 LM thru the internet.

    Stay away, far away, from such scammers.

    Romano, it's a type of automatic transmission 'Dual-clutch transmission'. Clearly The Mayor is enjoying picking apart this bogus listing by suggesting an absurd specification like this which had no relation to a real 250 LM. :D

    I pulled my interest in this car. I found out there is no Climate Control and the stereo sucks!

    Brad, my Nigerian uncle recently died in a fiery auto crash and left $51.4 million USD in cash so if you would just send me your bank account so I can claim the money I will get it deposited and throw the 250LM (and a royal title) in for free.

    Hehe. Right But I must also have the right to engage in signing a treaty (as stated in the listing). This will increase the value of my vintage racer tremendously and will be passed down eventually to my son Prince Hakeem

    I think your sales pitch is closer to this one below :)
