Not a lot of details on the eBay listing! but the BHP has went from over 300 on donedeal to over 250 on eBay, I guess it has never been measured. With a 912 gearbox it is a nice set up.
I was bidding on it but it went a bit to high for me :smt005

"This car is in the exact replica of a Porsche 911 rothmans with a very rare 912 gearbox the car have bills that exceed £20,000 the car has a 2.0 gti Engine fitted professionally that put out over 250 bph that runs like new everything works perfect on this car"

Strangely the Donedeal advert suggested that it was in Limerick Ireland, but the Ebay advert was suggesting Much Wenlock. Probably would have been cheaper buying at 9500 Euros vs £9850.

The seller on eBay had only joined 23 Feb 2017 and had a 0 feedback score at the time, so I hope the winner pays C.O.D.

UPDATE- 10/3/2017
The car is apparently in Ireland but is jointly owned by the mans brother in England who listed in on eBay. The covin was sold to someone in Austria who had not heard of covin and thought it was a real 911 so it was listed again on eBay.
The bids were up to £9200 with less than a day to go the seller ended the auction!

Joe, the owner in Ireland, took me for a spin in the car a couple of years back. It was frantic, to say the least, classic kitcar style rapid (with a few rattles and shakes), superb externally, I'd say the interior needs work (easy stuff). The suspension setup was good. Here it is, in the slideshow I did from the Limerick Classic Car show last year, I was there with my yellow F360 replica and daughter.That Covin had lots of positive attention from the Porsche Owners club. check it out at 0.42 mins into the clip:

I did have a bid on it but he ended the auction early, I hate it when people do that!

I'd say it was a 2.0l turbo engine if it got hat much hp. My 1.8 had 210hp with just a stage one remap & I could of got 350hp if I spent a few grand on the motor.
With the front end done it'll be a lovely motor.
