Ex Harris Car went for £92,500. (+fees of 6% £98,050)

Interesting given it was up for £120K for a good few months at AMSpeed, then dropped to "offers in excess of £100K"

I would be amazed if they didn't have an offer higher than £92,500 before they put it on the auction site.

Surely 'Winning Bid' makes me think this excludes the extras (?), so nearer £32K. A great price for low mileage version it you're buying !

winning bid plus 6% and as we all know winning bid does not mean it sold. i've seen the henna track car up close and have good idea what the owner has in it, so would be surprised if that sold

Agree,I don't know the car or owner but it looks like there has been a good amount of money spent. If I had commissioned all that work to get it where it is I'd be very reluctant to let it go for that.

Certainly on ebay, you really can't tell if its sold or not, however, Collecting Cars appear to have stricter rules:
Collecting Cars said:
Once a bid has been placed, you cannot withdraw it. If you as the successful Buyer fail to complete the purchase of an auction for any reason other than the default of the Seller, you will be obliged to pay the 6% premium including VAT (minimum of £600, with a cap at £6,000) of your high bid.
That's a pretty good £2K incentive !
Obviously if it's not as described by the seller, then the buyer can get a refund etc

No, when the reserve has been met it says, 'No Reserve'.

Its the high mileage Cat D car I linked earlier.

Actually disappointed that seller would get involved in such a car! eek

4 Star have always sold decent cars. Whilst they aren't hiding anything about this one. Are they REALLY that low on stock they need to take on crap?

Things must be crazy when recorded write offs are up at £77k!

I've seen a couple of shockers over the years, including an E21 where VOSA were involved in forcing a refund. Caveat emptor.

$250,000 for a U.S. model without the Getrag, too!

Sheesh! Well, - as I'd anticipated over the long term - my beautiful EU spec. E30 M3 here in Japan is definitely still rising in price then.

Classic and rare auction phenomenon of two very well heeled punters REALLY wanting the same car and prepared to keep outbidding each other and pay massively over market value for the privilege of owning it..

Great for the seller though!

Still a Getrag, just not a dog leg pattern.
