It has under 60,000 genuine original miles on the clock and according to the ad it “drives like an absolute dream”.

The engine purrs quietly, the automatic gears shift smoothly and the suspension is as soft as Marshmallow man himself.

The car which has been wrapped in white vinyl with full Ghostbusters decals, comes with white-wall tyres that accompany the original red steel wheels to match the original movie.
