Sorry for being thick, but why does the eBay ad have a pic of this red Diablo and a yellow F355 plunging into some water?

The Diablo ended up going front on into the water!

The 355 looks a bit replica-y to me?

It's actually a 348 (see the door catches), no engine etc. QV were originally building it up as a track car with huge brembo brakes etc. The film company bought it and it was put together for the film on the basis they were going to throw it out of an aircraft however in the end they used rather naf CGI.

IIRC it was a written off shell. Many of the bits fitted were dead ie cracked/ out of round wheels, failed components. Somebody was trying to sell it in the States a few years ago on the basis it could be rebuilt for the road eek but other than the shell it was worthless

Ah, interesting... It was the 348 door catches that jumped out at me!
