£41,070 includes premium. The car was bid to £37,000, premium is 11%.

Others in the auction were a Mk2 998 Cooper which was bid to £16000. The plate looks familiar and the sunroof didn't seem to hold it back

Late registered Mk2S did not sell, with an estimate of £25-30,000, and is currently being offered at £26,350. I guess the sellers reserve was £24,000.

These all seem to be fair prices........the “Speculative investor ” element of prices seems to be finally dropping away.....

Looks like a nice car, but I very much doubt it's claimed Downton heritage.

There are many things that identify it as a recreation, all be it a nice one.
I have rephrased my comments above, because the original ones were probably a bit harsh.

A mini does have an inline engine. Not a V engine, not horizontally opposed, not radial, not rotary, not W, not square.....

A Miura has a V engine just like a DB11.

I think prices have stabilised but don't see a fall anytime soon but the days of an instanteneous dealer price mark up is coming to an end unless it is something special.

What still surprises me on some occasions is the lack of obvious details on some of the cars that still sell well :roll: I have never fathomed people buying cars without researching the marque first and finding out from forums such as this what is correct and what is completely incorrect.

Just confusion between countries and transverse and inline in the ad, the Miura has a transverse V, the Mini a transverse inline (cylinder layout) over here if the gearbox is behind the engine(not underneath / by the side) it would often also be described as inline no matter what the cylinder layout, with 'straight' being used for the cylinders, so that would make a Morris Minor an inline straight 4 ! (sounds far more exotic than it is :lol: ), we all need to pop over to Piston Heads if you want to see how in-depth it gets with people debating pedantry on subjects :shock:
