Went to an eBay press day yesterday, and there, nestling amongst some rather funky items – like a swish Harley Davidson motorbike – that the company had brought in to show us, was this puppy. Lady Penelope’s original FAB 1 Rolls Royce model used in the Thunderbirds Are Go! movie.
Now I may be daft, but I can’t for the life of me understand why anyone would want to spend over £51,000/$90,000 (Reserve Not Met) for an 8 foot long, wood and metal toy car. Anyway there you go, all yours for the taking.
Oh and if you’ve got any change left over after you’ve collected this trophy, why not saunter over to the sports section of the Spanish site and cough up the €24,000/$28,000 or so needed to buy the actual football that David Beckham kicked when he missed the penalty in this year’s Euro 2004 tournament against hosts Portugal? Lucky fan Pablo Carral caught the match ball in the stands and is now poised to make a lot of money from it in 5 days time.
