A British man, with an obvious sense of humour, has posted his Mercedes E320 Cdi on eBay using pictures of his full-figured wife draped over the bonnet to help the sale.
And to demonstrate the boot space, he’s posted photos of people in it, including the wife.
The tongue in cheek ad, from eBay user camibanks, which starts: “If you are looking for an immaculate, well maintained example of a Mercedes e320 CDI … you have come to the wrong place …” is obviously working, though.
Since the ad was posted on June 11, it’s attracted 47 bids (at time of writing) and the price has soared to Pound152,000 ($A251,000).
The ad goes on: “If however, you are low on self esteem, with a strapped budget, but shooting for the stars, welcome to my auction. May I present to you, one of the finest feats in Germanic engineering politely modelled by my ‘more to love’ missus.
“As you can see from the photos this car has seen things … things it cannot forget. I have owned this car for 3 years, and up to then it had been lovingly cared for and maintained. Since owning the vehicle, it has been thrashed, raced, rallied, and the interior has been smashed up in a domestic, not to mention the time my wife booted the wing because I suggested she eat a salad or two.”
