Have a look at this on eBay:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2423218777&category=9855

Read the description of the vehicle, or alternatively, here is the noteworthy snippet:

"I AM THIRD OWNER [ BOUGHT FORM RUSSIAN ASSOSCIATED WITH MAFIA IN LITHUANIA SEE PHOTO !!./ I HAVE ALL RUSSIAN / LITHUANIAN PAPERWORK.."

Would you buy a car like this???

It *looks* like a very nicely cared for car - However, I dont know that I would be happy driving it for fear of being mistaken for its original owner and gunned down in some kind of revenge attack.

Wonder if you can hear kicking and screaming from the boot whilst you are driving it, or did that particular model come with sound-proofing?

Nice motor that. I agree with Koolvin, though, I probably wouldn't have a LHD myself...

Interesting fact.........approx 40% of prestige cars in Russia are stolen from the rest of Europe.
Every now and then they hold an amnesty for people to register them.:D
Car Insurance is quite unusual and you have to shout louder than the Guy who hit you, to get satisfaction (in Moscow, 8 lanes of traffic....3 of them are for people in a hurry...whatever direction you want!! tram dodging)

Scariest place I have ever drove:(
