    "This is one of E-V Concepts 2010 models. This electric hybrid is built on the all wheel drive Audi A8L Quattro. The car is all aluminum accept for the fiberglass body kit that has been added over the existing aluminum skin. The Audi A8 sells for over $60,000 new and has every feature that a luxury vehicle should have along with being possibly the fastest luxury car. The car has been converted to an all electric lithium powered hybrid. The car uses the original six speed tiptronic automatic transmission coupled to a high volt high powered motor that equals that of the gas engine that was removed. The car has a combined range on battery power along of 80 miles.The rear lower trunk area carries the on board generator that is capable of powering the car with a combined range over 500 miles.

    For over thirty years E-V Concepts has tried to create unique electric vehicles that are not found in the rest of the world. We continue to design new electric vehicle concepts for other customers and companies around the world. With the use of the smaller lithium battery systems all of our highway speed cars are hybrid designs carrying on board charging systems for long range travel. We have created many unique fiberglass body designs over the years and continue each year adding to them. You can find some of our past, present and future designs on our website E-V Concepts.com. Please call or email with any questions. Dealers and distributors are welcome."

    Also note that guy has 90 positive feedback and 89 of those are from buying stuff. The only feedback he has from a buyer is someone in Netherlands for an EV?? Why would someone put fiberglass over an aluminum body anyway?

    Yep, obviously a scam. Interestingly enough he provided me with an address where I could see the car. In case anyone is familiar with the area, it would be interesting to know if it's a real place.

    I do think there's a certain amount of sardonic humor in a fake car being called "The Facade". It looks like eBay is on to them. Thanks for the help!

    That car looks like a mix of several other cars: Front says Audi, Side says Panamera but most of all it looks like a SCAM!!!
