Back in 2009, Cristiano Ronaldo slammed his Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano F1 sports car into a roadside barrier on the way to training in Manchester. Nearly four years later, the same car—still wrecked—popped up on eBay France with an asking price of $64,380. For almost the same price as an emotive robotic avatar from Hammacher Schlemmer, you could have owned the twisted hunk of metal that used to be one of Cristiano’s many rides. Except, the buyer pulled the listing after media caught wind, an indication that it might soon cost you even more to buy an undriveable car that may or may not contain enough of Ronaldo’s DNA to start the cloning process. If you’re into that sort of thing.
Spanish newspaper ABC reports that it comes with 1,925 miles on the clock and various documents with the name of the 27-year-old Portuguese striker on them.
A brand-new edition of the car would cost $321,900. It is being offered at the low price, by a professional scrap dealer from Duppigheim in the east of France because of its poor condition.
But, according to the listing, it is “certainly repairable.”
The seller has papers with Cristiano’s name on them, including the car’s registration in Portugal and a 2008 bill of sale.
