actually, I contacted the seller. Problem is:
He gives 2FFXA20A5J0077045 as the correct vin. That might look wrong since all Ferraris start with ZFF, but CARFAX does give a record for it. This means at some time a record was made for that vin. But you can see the vin is not normal because it does not give any further info like model or country made etc. Now try ZFFXA20A5J0077045, and a lot more appears. I believe something like 8 records. I have no idea what records each VIN inclues, since I do not pay for CARFAX, so I can not see what is in those records. I am curious for that info.

BUT, that still is carfax, and those records are hand inserted, and mistaking a Z for a S is possible. I'm not saying the car is not ok, but I would definately check these things out before buying. Aspecially because there is only 1 record on the false VIN, and the false VIN is also given. Maybe, and I say maybe, because I do not want to ruin somebodies auction while it may be a perfect car, the normal vin has a bad carfax, and the new false one a good one. But this is offcourse all speculation. Please do not feel bad about this car before you know for sure, because I only want to give the info I have. And I'm not an expert at these things :lol:

Nevermind what I just said, I see the seller already gives the right vin in his auction at the bottom after I contacted him about it. So like I already said, it is probably nothing.

OK, what's going on here? Now, there are no bids and it's at $25K. Dr Bob, have any idea? Something's suspicious here...It's just too good to be true!

Forza.

My bet is something is wrong with the car. Why would people bid on it and then drop their bid. If it is really a bargain, it would be gone. Ebay has enough viewers to have at least 1 person to look at it and steal it for that money. If somebody here has acces to CARFAX of CARCHECK, please look up both VINs, and please advise us about the info that it gives. If that info is suspicious, we know enough. If it doesn't maybe all services haven't been done? (Didn't read the auction) Maybe all the people inspected the car by either themselves or another person, and decided to retract the bid (for whatever reason). Something is not ok with that car, that is clear to me.

The car was removed early before bidding closed. It had been up to just under $32,000. When an item is removed the price resets back to its starting price.

I don't know if it was sold or if the owner just got cold feet. I'll try to find out.
