An instagram user currently named _benjaminkeller_ (former _kellerbenjamin_ and benjaminkeller_91) claims to be in the market for #112. Earlier he claimed he bought the car and posted pictures of it for months as it was his, when it was obvious it wasn't he claimed the deal fell through. And he removed all posts with #112. He have also posted claimiing he was in the market for #093 and made posts suggesting he had a drive in #123 (removed when he was tagged in the original posts), now he is at #112 again.

First let's check up on a few of "his other cars".
F12 Tdf check here. In short, random pictures of yellow f12tdfs posted as "his car", pictures always from internet, different licence plates and specifications of "the car". A lot of them removed by now, but not all of them.

Short resume of "his" gtc4lussio (the pictures still remaining)
"Baby racer is at home, now she waits daddy to be back. Four seats with a big N/A V12", Posted January 13. Check the licence plate carefully, it says S&Smotors. This car is still for sale in Turkey.

"Maybe I should clean her, or maybe I should just wait for the next rain", Posted May 16, stolen from cars_in_bern instagram (Swiss BS-licence plate).

"Perfect daily driver", posted May 18. Picture is a Swiss SG-licence plated car spotted in München straight from Autogespot.

Seems it's not only his F12tdf he can't take pictures of himself, but needs to take his gtc4lussio pictures from others as well..

Is this someone in the market for a Koenigsegg?
I'll do a check on his other cars another day. Or why not on "his" private jet 3A-MGA? The one that never seems to be where he is .. But rather often are in South Africa when he prepares it at Bassel airport for a trip to London, or like now when he is out traveling, "his" jet is going in very different directions. Maybe not so strange as 3A-MGA is really Monaco's Governmental jet ..

He recently posted this picture "from his trip to Japan"
https://www.instagram.com/p/BWOFafnlY6U/
This is the position this Zonda (760 "Kiryu", #76129) had over one year ago

Notice the yellow Porsche reflected in the drivers door and behind it + the yellow cloth in the door.

If the picture had been recent the car would be further away from the wall and have a White Zonda (F, #76092) next too it.

Here is two pictures posted earlier this week (but removed now)

When he was tagged in this one he removed those pictures and changed his instagram name, this picture was taken in March and like the others it couldn't be part of an ongoing trip to Japan

he also posted a copy of this as being from his trip to Japan, but it was removed before I got a screen dump of it.

How about Details on "Ben's" F12tdf today, a lot of the pictures are removed by now, and I can't get new ones because since this thread was started he have gone private (and I'm obviously not his best friend). I'll just do a selection on this one with some stuff I had saved because I posted with some friends as we use to laugh at him, you will get the picture.

April 25, 2017. "Was less than 24 hours in Monaco, now back to Basel".

Original picture: Autogespot September 25, 2016 (the last picture, nr10). Licence plate M373, black ORVMs.

April 23, 2017. "Weekend is over, time to go back to work But with a TDF this isn't bad at al".

Original picture: April 23, 2017. benminol at Instagram. Licence plate YP1111

April 2, 2017. "I like to put mileage on my cars, last year I brought with me the TDF to Dubai..."

Original picture: Autogespot January 17, 2017 (2nd picture slightly rotated and cut to get rid of the nasty watermarks) Licence plate T15964, painted wheels.

March 15, 2017. "First time that I'm late for lunch, I hate all this long meetings".

Original picture: Autogespot July 13, 2016 (picture nr8). Licence plate M373, black ORVMs.

March 7, 2017 "How much I missed my yellow ��".

Original picture: February 22, 2017 il_dandissimo at Instagram. Licence plate FE000VH, black ORVMs

December 25, 2016. "Damn, she looks so mean"

This one it's funny not only because it doesn't have bodycoloured ORVMs like "his car" was specified. But if you look carefully at the picture you see yellow lines on the floor (not visible but they are saying SI PREGA DI NON TOCCARE LE AUTO), this is the F12tdf "dummy" at the Ferarri museum!

I could continue forever, but I think you get the picture? Just one more.. :^)

December 14, 2016. "Like every evening I'm the last who leaves the office.."

Original picture: October 3, 2016 4timesgumballer at Instagram and this sales add.

Today's car, the 458 SpecialeA. On this one he applied a smarter technique. He was using mainly pictures of one specific car in Monaco/Southern France, spoted and published often by spotters and instagram users.

First some pictures taken from Autogespot:

He also takes some pictures from instagram of this car, but usually credit the original photographer. If not directly, then when you tag him in the original picture and reminds him. He could almost be the owner of this car. There is just a few "smaller" question marks, among them the driver is always a man that seems older than born -91 (the age "BK" claims to be). He never posts his own pictures and the car is like the others never seen together with some of his other cars. But as he is compulsive, he can't keep it straight!

July 30, 2016. "When she was new and without miles, my biggest proud, my Giallo Triplostrato #458SpecialeA" pictures from a Knight International sales add (add was active until recently and the car was 5500 km, so not likely his new car).

March 14, 2017. "That nice *****, couldn't resist to take her out with this weather" from sales add @4timesgumballer (this guy again!??)

March 31, 2017. "Open roof in my #458SpecialeA", picture taken from CAR Magazine.

May 19, 2017. "Ciao mi amor, I'm going to miss you�� Uncle doctor will take care of you, se you in two weeks" was quickly removed when he was tagged in this post. Seems it was a relay fast "splash and dash service" in Spain (notice the licence plate), because the two weeks was over in two days and he posted the car in Monaco again..

And I'm so sorry that I don't have the picture of when he posted it with red sidemarkers (US-spec, that post was quickly removed and the guy pointing out the mistake was blocked).
