I thought scam too, but there is a vin posted, so who knows - I'd still be weary though, even if it isn't a scam, it could be beat to hell and need work that isn't warranty-able

If it was local I'd have my Indy check it out

O well.

I did send an email.. I'll see what he says

I found a prime 1700 mile, 5 Year extended warranty GTR at the lambo dealer recently traded in. Some Shipping layers still ON the car.
Problem... 70k plus tax... With 4.99%....
Cleanest GTR in the US... 4 mi from my house...

that is the one thing that I still don't understand about scammers... I want them all to die, and if I ever meet one, I'll gladly put a bullet in 'em...
but why wouldn't you find the cheapest price for an object on autotrader/etc and just discount by 10-20%? Why go for the RIDICULOUS stuff... raises a lot more red flags

You have to understand that the majoriety of people are underinformed (or just complete idiots) and just like a fishing lure, if it's shiny/sparkles (in this case because it's cheap) they'll all flock and bite.

Never know what the scam is either. Maybe he's just looking for active email addresses/phone numbers that they can sell to other scammers. The low price will most certainly bring him lots of "impressionable" contacts.
