"Brand New" year 2000 Mercs with less than 100km?!

HI Guys

recently there has been a lot of "brand new" 2000 / 2001 model Mercs of all models coming up for sale here in New Zealand. These all have less than 1000km on each of them, apparently been stored "somewhere" possibly Singapore, does anyone have any further information?? Cheers

How much they want?
Putting 20 at the same time is not smart selling tactic if this is real.

I never said they were coming from the same seller.
There are various sellers in different countries so its possible there is or was a paddock full of these things somewhere (country unknown) unsold and in storage for years,
I am only asking if someone in this forum knows anything about them?

They are selling for about $4000 US each
