Postulating intrigues

“A private sale under way ‘outside New Zealand,’ according to the sale’s official Web site (and which we first read about on Jalopnik) has the enthusiast community scratching its collective head and postulating intrigues that would befit a Robert Ludlum thriller,” New York Times blogger Jonathan Schultz writes. “Over 2 Ferraris are offered, ranging in vintage from a Daytona 365 GTB to a 599 GTB Fiorano, with Enzos, F4s and Testarossas sprinkled between. A Dino 246 GT and another Daytona 365 GTB have already sold for undisclosed sums. Other rare supercars, including a Jaguar XJ22, a Porsche 964 Turbo S Leichtbau and a Cizeta V16, are also for sale.” Automotive Web log Jalopnik write: “All are unregistered with delivery mileage only, which means they almost certainly belong to the Sultan of Brunei. Who is selling the Sultan’s cars? According to the seller, these amazing vehicles were all ordered brand new from the factory and delivered to the owner who, for some unknown reason, never drove them. Now they’re sitting in a garage in New Zealand begging to be freed from their packaging.” All prices are in New Zealand dollars.
