It was even certified. When the vehicle landed in Germany, the new buyer had it looked at. Parties who were recertifying the vehicle's authenticity found out the motor was swapped at some point and the stamp on the engine was forged.

This sounds awfully similar to an issue Jerry Seinfeld recently had to deal with in the sale of one of his classic Porsche vehicles.
