An Italian sports car that international soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo totaled in January 2009 was put up for auction on eBay yesterday — but was taken down just as fast. The Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano F1 international soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo crashed — when he careened into a tunnel barrier near Manchester, England — was listed on the online site for a starting price of $64,380.  A brand new version would run you about $322,000. The listing was removed after media reported on the sale, prompting speculation that the wrecked car's pedigree could jack up the asking price at a later date. Spanish newspaper ABC reports that the burgundy-colored car only has 1,925 miles on the odometer and comes with various documents with the 27-year-old Portuguese star's name on them. It is being offered at the discount price, by a professional scrap dealer in the east of France, because it is in such bad shape. According to the listing, the powerful car with the demolished front end is "certainly repairable."  The listing was taken down early Thursday morning after Spanish, French and Portuguese media reported it was for sale prompting speculation on Twitter that it could be back on the market later this week — but at a much higher sale price. The then-FIFA World Player of the Year escaped uninjured and the police did not take any action against him. Now word on if the vehicle comes with any of Ronaldo's leftover hair gel.
