Selling already

There's a PE on EBay right now. 300 miles on it. Anybody know who's selling it?

Another speculator/opportunist. There have been a couple dozen for sale, dating from present back to when the cars were just a claimed number. There's a Prima registry out there if you want to find out the name of the guilty party. Of course, I shouldn't assume...there could be any number of good reasons someone needs to sell a new, serial-numbered, special-edition, historically-important car. :^)

seller says they have a baby on the way. Seems to be asking what they paid, based on what I'm reading around here.

Now there is another one. First one I posted is #84 and second one is #168... I hope these cars don't disappear into the darkness. It'd be nice to have a registry that is still accurate in a few years...

W I appreciate the "limited-ness" of the PE, Fiat has a tradition of, and continues in Euro to sell numbered editions fairly frequently.

A used PE is a used 500. its gonna take a depreciation hit. Listing a car with 300, 2000, or whatever miles is still a used car.

<-- still waiting on an Abarth, but may have to pick up a used 500 Sport in the interium.
85 Bertone (24k orig miles)

I agree. Once it drives off the lot...
