A home seller in Malibu has come up with a very unique and creative way of bringing attention to the sale of his home….he’s throwing in his red Ferrari F40. The iconic Italian sports car has less than 800 miles on it and only 1315 production models ever rolled off the factory floor in Maranello, Italy. The car was originally offered at $400k, though some buyers were willing to pay a bit more to possess this stellar sports model…up to $1.6m! The F40 was the first ever legal production car to exceed 200 mph. A Japanese Ferrari dealer once filmed himself hitting 201 mph only to be arrested after he sold a videotape to an undercover policeman. Bail probably wasn’t a problem, he had already sold 10,000 of the videos. The only catch on securing the car is that the home for sale must be purchased before 6-30-2010.
Oh, and about the house! The home’s asking price is $4,399,333.00 and it has expansive ocean views on half an acre. There are 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, and close to 6000 sq.ft. of living space. There is a pool, room to park 13 cars, and is less than a minute walk from the beaches along Encinal Bluffs. The house across the street is asking $49m! Call for a showing of the car or house! 310 699 8428
