An angry rocker
Adam Levine, the superstar rocker, has become incensed following his recent near million-dollar car purchase. The vehicle was a vintage Italian convertible. He obtained it from a classic car broker. However, things went sour with claims the car is a fake classic.
Court documents have been filed as part of a suit against a dealer of classic cars called Rick Cole. These documents allege that in December 2020, Levine traded a 1968 Ferrari GTC and a 1972 Ferrari 365 GTC/4. This was in addition to $100,000 cash. He wanted to purchase an incredibly rare Maserati. Specifically, this is a 1971 Ghibli SS Spyder. There were only 25 in the world with a 4.9L eight-cylinder engine.
Levine has gone on to allege that the car isn’t an original classic. He cites problems with serial numbers. Furthermore, there is an uncomfortable suggestion that a duplicate model, or the real one, is with a collector in Switzerland. Apparently, this has been the case for a long time according to the Los Angeles Times.
According to Levine’s suit, the seller said the car be bought as a VIN AM115.492.1241. Yet, there are a multitude of quirks. Examples include possibly false stamping fronts on the engine and chassis. As a result, the singer believes the vehicle is a separate, less rare Ghibli. Taking things further, the lawsuit also alleges document shenanigans.
Legal experts acknowledge that Levine’s car might actually be a legitimate Maserati Ghibli. However, it may be one that has been converted into a Spyder. Alternatively, it might have undergone an engine swap. The rarefied air of six-figure collector cars requires precise originality. Thus, either of these scenarios would minimise the value of the car.
A reminder to us all
Whatever the case, this acts as a reminder for everyone. It is necessary to do background checks and have due diligence prior to making any purchases. It is an issue Jerry Seinfeld also had to learn a few years ago. He sold a rare Porsche 356, only to have the buyer call it out as a fake. In turn, Seinfeld laid blame on the dealer that sold him the car.
