Since it’s on a Swedish site, this probably doesn’t qualify for the regular NP or CP, but I felt that it should be shared with the world.
The online auction is carried out by what Google tells me is “The Swedish Enforcement Authority”. Basically, it’s the authority that handles repossession and various debts. Normally while browsing their auctions for strange cars I feel bad about the owners who have lost them, but not this time.
The car is listed as a “modified Toyota MR2". As anyone can see, it’s clearly a genuine Ferrari fitted with a Toyota hardtop for weight saving purposes.
The rest of the advert goes as follows (translated for those unfortunate souls who haven’t yet been taught Swedish):
The car has been modified with plastic bodywork. Hard top in contrasting colour is included (soft top has not been checked) Spare keys, winter tires, manuals and service history are all unavailable. Motorsport alloys 19" with 245/35 tires. Lockable wheel nuts, the existence of keys is uncertain (car is registered with 185/55 15) CD player and large speakers are installed, various cables have been cut. Converted to electric doors, left door can not be opened, right door can only be opened manually and from the inside. Dampeners for hood and front boot are missing. Poorly fitting bodywork/certain components are loose, paintwork in poor condition, front wheels cut into fenders at full steering lock, mesh in front of hood missing etc etc. The car is to be considered a project car. Started, not taken for a test drive.
Unfortunately, we can not arrange shipping for this object.
So what do you say, dear Oppos? NP? It should be noted that while the estimated value of the car is set to 20,000 SEK (roughly $2400), the bidding has for some reason reached 43,500 SEK ($5000-ish) at the time of writing.
