True? or a sales pitch?

Have a look at this:

http://search.newsmotoring.news.com....2&make_id=FORD

or if you can't be bothered here is what it says:

FALCON XR8 97, factory chipped, p/ built for Jacques A Nasser, met burg, heart rims, w/grain+ lux, reg 02/04, $21, 950 Ph 0411 286 155

Is this BS or could this be true?

Re: True? or a sales pitch?

Wouldn't Nasser have been in the United States at that time? Or not long after anyway. Sounds like an interesting EL!

Nasser needed a car when he got back from the US to visit Oz.

That's a point. Well it should be a low km example then.

That is true. There was a 1 off EL XR8 built for Nasser during one of his local visits and yes it was Regency Red

Re: True? or a sales pitch?

its just the fact that its a one off from the factory really which make me think it should be worth more.

Re: True? or a sales pitch?

Ahh mate, its only my opinion, Ill probably eat my own words now, haha. I just don't get how some people can perceive extraordinary value from some "common assets", although some people seem to make a bit of money on licence plates for instance.

I dunno what special options it has, but I reckon in most cases you'd be pushing shit uphill with a pointy stick trying to get much extra value on it, beyond what you could account as standard factory options.
Personally: Built for Nasser = :wgaf:
