Adam Levine says he was conned in $950K fake vintage car scam
Adam Levine has filed a lawsuit against a car dealer who allegedly sold him a fake vintage car in a $950,000 deal.
The Maroon 5 frontman claims he traded two of his classic Ferraris and $100,000 to a man named Rick Cole for a 1971 Maserati in 2020. However, Adam now alleges that the car isn’t authentic and the documents pertaining to the vehicle are fake.
DailyMail.com reports the Adam Levine Living Trust — which is suing for negligent misrepresentation, intentional misrepresentation, fraudulent concealment and breach of contract — wants to reverse the deal or to be compensated.
“The identity of the Vehicle is, at the very least, in serious doubt,” the suit states, adding that Adam believes the car isn’t a real Ghibli Spyder. (Only 25 Maserati Ghibli 4.9 Liter Spyders were ever manufactured.)
“Cole purported to have found an authentic Maserati Ghibli 4.9 Liter Spyder that he described as being ‘as good’ as an authentic Maserati Ghibli 4.9 Liter Spyder with a clear and indisputable identity that a representative of the Trust had seen and drove in Monterey [in California] a year or so earlier, and which was valued at over $1 million,” the suit alleges.
Only adding to the uncertainty, Adam’s lawyer says the “Payphone” singer was discouraged from selling the car, which leads them to believe the dealer “obviously feared that if the Trust marketed the Vehicle, it would eventually learn the truth concerning its lack of authenticity and corresponding decrease in market value.”
