The Volvo V70 Turned “Tank” That Has Us Enthralled Is Now On The Block

Remember the one person who took “Volvos are built like a tank” a little too literally and in the process, puts smile on a lot of people faces? Well, apparently, it is has been put up on the block for the sake of Ben Charity. As it turns out, this thing is located in Loughborough, the U.K and the seller has listed it on eBay in a no reserve auction. In case you are interested, it will ship to U.K., the U.S., and Australia, and at the time of this writing, it has garnered 35 bids which push the price to a modest £2,300. The car, or rather the “tank,” started life as a year 2000 Volvo V70 Estate and it was created for a charity run for the best five driving roads in the Alps which it emerged as the winning car out of the 40 other rides in the Bangers for Ben 2017 charity run.

eBay’s New Service Will Prevent You From Buying Fake Luxury Goods

So, you can’t afford a 300 bucks plus subscription device that could certify the authenticity of designer handbags? Fret not, my friends, head over to eBay and you will probably have a peace of mind that the designer handbag or wallet you are buying is in fact the real deal. There’s a catch though. The sellers you are dealing with will have to subscribe to eBay’s new Authenticate service and obviously, this is not a free service to the sellers. Sellers who wished to have their products certified by eBay and subsequently, slapped with an “Authenticity Verified” label, the product in question will need to be of value of at least $500 and if the seller managed to offload the product to a buyer, he or she will only receive 80 percent of the sale proceed.

Not-for-sale Razer Chroma Mug On eBay UK Gets Razer CEO’s Due Attention

Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan had specifically said that the Razer Chroma Mug is strictly a non sale item. It was an exclusive gift presented to partners and close friends with some set aside for loyal fans through a sweepstake or something of sort, but in this Internet age, non sale item doesn’t mean you won’t be able to get it, well, that’s if you are prepared to drop a cool 1,220 English pounds or more (about an insane $1,520!). As it appears, at least one partner of Razer or close friend is not appreciating the exclusivity bestowed on him or her because this person, referred to as eBay seller dezolator-uk, has put it up for auction on eBay.

Who Needs A Treehouse When You Can Have An 18-Foot Tall ‘Playable’ AT-AT

British garage inventor Colin Furze is known to invent and build all sorts of crazy stuff, ranging from fire-breathing pulse jet-powered trike to homemade hoverbike to ‘less insane’ things like remote controlled trash can, but for his latest build, it was surprisingly sane and danger-free too, well, that’s unless you count falling off an AT-AT as a real danger. So, yes. Colin has constructed an enormous AT-AT based off the upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story movie and he wasn’t in it alone; eBay UK has his back with all the supplies he needed to realize a real world AT-AT and no, I am 100 percent sure he did not spend 226.5 million dollars to build it.

Nutella is much loved by nearly everyone. We can’t think of anyone who doesn’t like Nutella unless, of course, they are allergic to chocolate and/or hazelnut. However, with great love comes great threat and by threat we meant to say, it can be gobbled up by another hazelnut spread craze and before you know it, you may be opening the pantry to an emptied Nutella jar.

Super Rare ‘Still-in-the-Box’ Porsche 936 Go-Kart Replica Uncovered, Goes on the Block on eBay

Sometime in 1984, Ferdinand Anton Ernst Porsche, or more affectionately known as Ferry Porsche, was gifted with a 1/2 scale replica of the automaker’s 1981 Le Mans winning car, the Porsche 936, which he eventually put on display in the Porsche museum. Well, this is not the exact one that Porsche had. In fact, this one is even more special and could be considered as the rarest of the rarity because it has never seen the light of the day until recent time when it was unboxed after over 30 years. This junior version was a commemorative but fully functional model produced in small batch of between 50 and 100 units (see what we meant be rarest of the rarity?) and was sold to Porsche dealers around the world. As you might have imagined, not many had laid their hands on one and even more rarer to find one that’s practically untouched 30 years on.
