vintage Lego fiat multipla?

Just spotted this on fleebay, is it real?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/vintage-Lego-fiat-multipla-very-very-rare-1-of-500-won-in-competition-in-2003-/331827781737?hash=item4d427a2069:g:0YsAAOSwWBJXBPiE

The seller says;

'Up for grabs is a very rare Lego Fiat Multipla car, we won this after a visit to Legoland back in 2003 and put it up in the attic where its been until now, in superb condition and very rare as 1 of 500 not seen another one on eBay comes with letter from Fiat and a contact number if you would like to check, definitely 1 for the collectors. 

can post and it'll be very well boxed up and sent recorded royal mail
thanks for looking and good luck'

But I don't know if that makes sense or not. No box, no set number, letter that could be printed out by anyone in 5 minutes, looks like it is probably just an average model of a bad car. I could be wrong, what do people think?

    I'd say it's more likely to be something that was built especially by the people at Legoland. The style is similar, and there are a number of very rare parts in it, which simply wouldn't have been available in any quantity at the time. For example:

    http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemIn.asp?P=3068b&in=S&colorID=12&ov=Y was only in one set, back in 1988

    http://alpha.bricklink.com/pages/clone/catalogitem.page?P=6191&idColor=7#T=S&C=7&O={%22color%22:7,%22ss%22:%22UK%22,%22cond%22:%22N%22,%22rpp%22:%22100%22} - prior to 2010, this piece last appeared in 1998.

    http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemIn.asp?P=3001&in=S&colorID=12&ov=Y - trans-clear 2x4 bricks last appeared in 1986.

    Legoland workshops can have quite a selection of old or discontinued parts, and Lego have even produced parts for use in Legoland parks which have never appeared in sets, for example, the 1x8 brick in Maersk Blue:

    To be honest, assuming it's not glued together, the rare elements in it are probably worth at least £15.

    So it looks like it was made by a Legoland builder. If it was almost any other car I would consider it, but its a Fiat Multipla so couldn't pay me to have that in my house.

    Interesting all the same mind you as a curiosity.

    ^ This. Rare elements or not it looks bloody awful.

    Ugliest car ever mass prodiced, in Lego form. Just wondering when we're going to get a Lego Nissan Juke or BMW i3 (how can the i3 be so ugly when the i8 is like a beautiful spaceship on wheels?).

    ...BMW i3 (how can the i3 be so ugly when the i8 is like a beautiful spaceship on wheels?).
    I would say about $100,000.00 worth of engineering...
