Rare Bertone Lancia Stratos watch has just been sold on eBay

Renowned Italian coachbuilder Bertone designed the surreal Lancia Stratos Zero Concept that was displayed at the Turin Motor Show. It showcased a different dimension with its futuristic concept, a deviation from the production model that bears the same name, but it was still as eye-catching as ever. Due to its one of a kind aesthetic, it even made a cameo appearance at the 1998 Michael Jackson movie titled Moonwalker.

The fully-functioning prototype was powered by a Lancia V4 engine that belts out a robust 115hp with 2 twin-choke Solex carburetors located under the crazy triangle-shaped engine cover in the center of the concept car. The futuristic design also flaunted a row of headlights across the front with 55 watt bulbs. Its turn signals were consecutive, going from the center to its edges.

Also, the back ribbon of lights has a strip of 84 mini bulbs. Inside, the seats had a near horizontal position, with its windshield extended overhead to provide a great view of the road and of the sky above. The revolutionary instrument panel, positioned to the left, displayed info in green acrylic glass. But the impressive bit that comes with this original concept is that it also generated a range of limited edition watches a few years later after it was displayed.

2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon shows up on eBay with ridiculous $250K price tag

Another day, another news update about the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Just a few days after it was reportedly having issues with its production line, we’re back with news regarding the Demon. If you’re interested to be one of the first owners of the 3,300 units of the said model, then this surely will get your attention.

Last week, Dodge officially announced that the Challenger SRT Demon will have a price tag of $84,995. But what is interesting is that there is already an eBay listing for an example of the fastest quarter-mile production car. So, you don’t have to wait until this fall to get your hands on a $84,995 Dodge from the manufacturer, but you can instead get one for three times the price at $250,000, from the well-rated eBay seller.

The seller described the car as “by far the most powerful, mean looking, rare, and ridiculous production car ever made”. However, based on his description, we have doubts whether this guy already has the car on hand or is still waiting for his appointment at the dealership so he can order one. That is when he said that upon buying, there still has to be a discussion on the exact ordering specifications. He also said that if the purchase is made past the order date then the buyer will have to settle with the options chosen by the eBay seller.

TSportline is selling this Tesla Model X with a Bentley interior on eBay for $180K

We are all aware that certain models and configurations of the Tesla Model X, as well as the Bentley Bentayga, both cost over six figures. So, what if both models were combined together? Well, it had already been done by Tesla tuner, TSportline. It gave this Model X such a grand makeover that anyone on the roads will definitely do a double take.

With over $60,000 worth of customizations, the model is stunning. For instance, it has a bespoke Bentley Red leather interior - with perforated leather and signature diamond stitching. The interior alone costs $25,000. And it’s not just that of course, it comes with two-toned gloss carbon fiber and Bentley leather steering wheel that costs an additional $3,200, plus a gloss carbon fiber interior package, and extra thick hand-carved floor mats.

MINI UK has launched its online store on eBay, allowing its customers to choose and buy items without going to physical stores. Around 1,300 are already up for picking by any MINI customer, which means almost endless ways to personalize one’s MINI – with items to be delivered to where the customer is.

The digital store on eBay features a variety of accessories like wing mirror covers and cleaning products, to alloy wheels and interior trim items. Take note that the only genuine MINI parts are offered on the store, allowing consumers to choose from a selection of popular service-based items.

Customers could also contact MINI Direct to suggest the items that they might want for their MINIs. But that is not all the customers could avail from the online store.

eBay Inc. started this week offering discounts to dealers who purchase national subscriptions to list their vehicles for sale on its Web site. According to Bryan Murphy, general manager of eBay Motors, eBay's automotive division, the site is offering 3- and 12-month subscriptions ranging from five to 100 listings a month at discounted prices, depending on the subscription length and number of listings. For example, a dealer can purchase a 12-month, 50-listing subscription, excluding upgrades, for just $2,000 per month. This reflects 20-percent savings over the $50 per-vehicle listing fee eBay typically charges.

According to Murphy, the discount program includes support from consultants and tools to help dealers improve their listings and track sales. He remarked that the program is in response to dealers who asked for volume discounts. Murphy said that subscriptions provide dealers a program where they can list a portfolio of vehicles consistently, “week in and week out, and do so consistently, with discounts."

Prior to the program, eBay's price for basic, no-frills listings was the same for all dealers, regardless of volume. With the program, dealers who list as few as five vehicles a month under a subscription will receive a call from consultants to provide with information like number of page views, number of unique contacts and vehicle sales numbers.

There’s no way that a $140,000 Bentley would sell for just $14,000 but Andre Souang won this vehicle on eBay last month for this amount. Unfortunately, he received the disappointment of his life when the managers at Bentley Scottsdale told him that the auction listing was a mistake and that the car isn’t for sale. eBay later sent a form message to say that the auction was canceled for unspecified reasons.

Any hint of an auction was removed from Souang's account and from the Website. After just a few hours of the auction on Oct. 25, it seemed like the car was never on sale.

Typically, Bentleys sell for six figures. This 2008 convertible that Souang made for a bid for was in pristine condition and had very low mileage. It also had just one prior owner. Souang said that he had a suspicion that there was something awry when the "Buy It Now" offer was accepted. He believed that the dealer would make a counteroffer instead of shutting him down.
