Is that genuine?? I can't beleive nobody bid on it - for the £7500 starting bid, someone could have had all that and two motors - how about stripping the batteries and motor etc and using them in a custom conversion? Now THERE'S a project for ya :lol:

I've spoken to the people selling the car. It's a very sad story, but the upshot is that here is a car that is pretty much ready to go and break a couple of world records.

They have had some interest so far, but lots of morons on eBay which is why they cancelled all the bids and closed the auction. If anyone is seriously interested in doing something with this car, it is available and open for offers.

Oh dear , I did wonder if the e-bay idiots had got to it :roll:

I had heard that they had backing issues along with some management failures :cry: and hence it was going to go, didnt know how true this was but I suppose as the vehicles up for sale it must be fairly true, great shame :cry:
