Woman auctioning herself with her Ferrari
Thursday, 29 June , 2006, 03:31

Berlin: A woman living in Germany is auctioning off her red Ferrari Enzo sports car and including a little extra in the package herself.

The 26-year-old has invited bids on Internet auction site ebay starting at 1.25 million euros.

She said she was rich herself, liked her car and was looking for a man who could foot the bill for such a luxury.

"Only a millionaire could afford such a car," said the woman, who gave her name as Leila and said she once worked as a singer in Syria. "I want a man who doesn't like me just for my money."

Leila said she would meet with interested bidders but would need to see the bidder's passport and proof of capital. No bids have been made yet in the auction which ends in a week.

There was/is a similar case in UK except the "women" clause
Man selling his one/two (not sure) floored house for approx 3 crores INR and along with the house you get a Ferrari 355 F1. Not a bad deal considering the house was very good.

Guys do you seriously think there would be a multi-millionaire woman who let's presume somehow got an Enzo allotted for herself and WAS a singer in Syria and she has to sell herself alongwith the car on eBay to find a man??

Am I the only one to think "Yeh to saali poori ki poori daal hi kaali hai" here. Do you not think a woman like that would find enough suitors anyways?

But have to say this is hilarious and my guess is it's one of those scam auctions on eBay just to get some attention.

Is the woman hot? Then I won't mind the combo offer.
Just kidding.
She is surely quite rich as she has an Enzo Ferrari at the age of 26. Not many people have that kind of money at that age.
