    I made him an offer, he'll contact me today ???? same answer as the other reply !

    I know an ex driver from this cars (even i'm in contact with 3 ex drivers from this cars), who asked the owner to sell me the cars, and the answer was no !

    I've always been told that the engines were gone, and that the cars didn't have any vin n° or road legal papers any more...

    The guy on the website is also advertising 4 times the same cars on the same site ?

    So, I'm surprised ... and waiting.....

    And the seller is using pictures from the net, and didn't answer my questions for 3 weeks to visit the cars....

    we'll see, but I don(t really believe in the advert, I keep you informed.

    greetings, Vincent.

    Looks like some funny guy raised the bid from 20.001 to... 250.000 euro!!! Must have been a typo... :)

    So, a little update...

    I contacted the guy yesterday, and he let me know the highest bid for the moment.....

    I told him that the price isn't any problem, that i have a budget with sponsors, and that I want to see the cars !

    Oupssss, no reply anymore.

    I did some research on the internet and found out that the guy is living on 5 km of my home, but didn't find out his adress already.


    Oh, the other funny guy from the 20.001 euro bid, is ME.

    greetings, and i'll keep you update.

    greetings, Vincent.

    Hello All.......

    Made an email to the funny guy, after some research, asking him how he wanted to finish the deal....

    Or if he is just a big fake dreamer, and...... he woke up ! TODAY...

    He is telling me to stop to be agressive, and that now, he doen't want to sell ME the cars anymore (ha ha ha, bla bla bla)

    I asked him, why he didn't have any other buyers like me, after more than 11.000 visitors on the website ?


    SO, I think the case can be closed (as I thought from the beginning)

    Greetings to all, just a shame for our time we lost on this case, because I really wanted to invest in such a project.

    So your bid of 20001 euros, was it for the 2 Ferrari's or only one?

    I really want to see these cars, so I keep on searching for more info.
    I really think an enthousiast has bought them to restore them. Who would pay about 30000 euro (what I've heard) to part them out? They'll never be worth this amount of money in parts I think.

    So I hope that we can see and enjoy these cars sooner or later on a race track!

    If only I had the money...

    I think you're right because it seems there aren't many parts left on those cars. I suspect they were made as light as possible anyway for racing so not much left inside and the pictures show a few body parts missing too.

    I do hope an enthusiast bought them and will bring them back to race spec.

    They're not talkactive... The wouldn't tell me who the buyer was, or where he's from.
    And I didn't see the cars at the company. I went there to take a look because it's very near where I live.
