Lovely car. What were they thinking removing the paint around the A number on the front panel and so much as well and also the FE number they should be beaten around the yard with a stick for that.

With the uncertainty of Brexit on the horizon it will effect prices world wide, until stability is back I feel prices will reflect this. Of coarse very nice desirable cars will alway sell well, anything smelly will drop like a stone.

The high prices some cars reach are working against the fun we take out of them.
I was keeping an eye on this car simply because it is similar to mine in a way. And I have to say I was hoping it didn't go sky high in price.
How can I enjoy something that may have such value?...
And if it gets wrecked? or something breaks?... the "value" goes down the drain!
Can't help but feel that a fun 850 would be much more rewarding.

Wow talk about well bought - the buyer scooped up a deal on this one, IMO.

Maybe just slow sales in the winter months? That should have had another $10k or more in it, compared to similar cars on BAT. :shock:

From the MM forum: “The car actually did not meet the Reserve of 50k but BAT paid the difference to show the car as sold.”

Interesting...

There's a lot of talk lately about how BAT cars aren't meeting the reserve often enough, and I've had friends who tried to list vehicles with BAT only to be told they'd only take on the listing if it was "no reserve."
