Bernie's quick Merc goes up for sale


The latest F1-related item to be offered on Ebay is a Mercedes C32 AMG, previously owned by F1 supremo, Bernie Ecclestone, and serviced and tuned by McLaren.

According to the blurb: "Acceleration is amazing. This is the fastest stock Mercedes ever produced: the C 32 AMG sedan loaded with two adults and luggage takes only 5 seconds to reach 62 mph according to Mercedes. The AMG high performance brake system with ventilated disk brakes all round and perforated brake disks at the front cooperates with the AMG sports suspension to achieve even faster standstill."

The highest bid thus far is 30,100 ($57,000), but apparently the reserve price has not yet been met.

"For the first 2 years of it's life this car was serviced and tuned by McLaren," reads the Ebay listing. "This is probably the fastest C32 on the planet and the BHP has been increased to over 400BHP. The descriptions are the specs of the standard car, but the one for sale was been super tuned by McLaren for added performance, making it the fastest C32 on the road."

Serious bidders, with the necessary insurance and dosh, are invited to take the car for a test drive.

Who knows what you might find stuffed down the back of the seats.
