Having had a Cerbera, and a Tuscan, tempted by this. Anyone know it?

Seems to have been for sale for a while.

I can't comment on the condition of the car but I have seen it up for sale in the past as well.

Been on sale on and off for about a year. Needs very carefull checking for all the usual stuff.... I'm sure any owner on here can supply a check list. I certainly can!

Not sure what your budget is but there is a very late one on e-bay for about £25K, there is quite a difference between the earlier cars and this one.

That one looks great, but why does it have black wing mirrors? Would look so much better in body colour, though easy to change I guess.

You're right it does, thats not a standard feature as mine and every car I've ever seen are the same colour as the car. A question a potential buyer would need to have a good answer to.

Didn't see the 25k one, but over budget, would prefer less, with some in the pot contingency.

A wise plan, although it would be an idea to look at a late one at this early stage.
