A person named ‘Frank’ has upset the bosses at McLaren after he listed his MP4-12C on eBay the same day he took delivery, Autocar reports. Indeed, it may well have been the very first 12C to be delivered.
The car in question had a £250,000 reserve, some £65,000 over the official asking price. McLaren has an arrangement with its 12C customers that they do not on sell their new wheels for profit. Within eight seconds, it is believed, McLaren saw the listing and quickly started asking questions.
After some stuffing around and, no doubt, a few heated phone calls the Rybrook dealership in Birmingham effectively refunded ‘Frank’ and took the car back.
