I think he is just selling it (I think it has "Formula Motors" plate on at the photo?) Is Mr. Al Otaiba not only selling/servicing them, but also using them all as they where his own? :^) .. not because they pull much miles, #080 for sale right now with 350-400km..

Edit: I checked the license plate at #067, It's not the same seen at a Zonda outside Lamborghini Miami. I think it reads SCL-99-99, SCL-88-88 or something similar.

I meant anyone certified at Lamborghini of Miami, I personally know the Koenigsegg tech, I just talked to him yesterday and asked about the car. He can confirm that #67 is undamaged, and is still around, but that's all he would tell me. Very private collection I guess.

Makes you wonder how many supercar collections with one, or several Eggs there can be..
A guy at Pagani-Zonda.net claims that someone he knows on the Isle of Man has a collection with a red CC8S with crema/beige interior.. As we know, no such egg was built new, but I asked him to snap a pic of it with the VIN.

Seeing as both #004 and #002 hasnt been seen for a while and have matching interior it could be possible that one of them has been re-sprayed.
Im very sceptic, but hopefully hes not lying to us..

A recent picture of the covered cars, #001 is not much of a mystery, but the next one.. It seems to have been there for years.. and btw the next one.. I mentioned in another post that I thought it was #092. Let me change my mind and say #091 (not seen this summer).

October 1, 2010

Edit: Maybe I was a bit fast with the 2010 picture, that might be a different car, but the conclusion is the same .. here a picture from early 2011 with both of them.

In the SS7 video you can see #91's body parts on a few racks, so I imagine they got resprayed or were being repaired.

Also, maybe under the middle cover is a pre-cc8s prototype? The body shape looks slightly different to #1 to me.

I think the first prototype is at a Museum. The other one (#XX1) was used for crash tests, if it's alive then it's probably to the left (if it's not #035 or a "disappeared" car?). To me the car without the front (and rear?) bonnet is a "disappeared" car I think pictures where the rims are visible could narrow it even further..

I'm not sure I've seen it since it was where the "showroom"/turntable are now (together with CCGT), 2008? But might remember it wrong..
