Mods, Mileage, time of the year etc would contribute to that price.

Still a great bargain for someone!

The last heavily modded one to come up on CC (although that one had a cage too) also sold for less than might be expected. I don't think it's surprising that more of a "collectors" market appreciates originality over mods and heavy track use. I would guess the package would have made a bit more overall if it was sold with the original parts fitted, and the mods sold separately.

Plus there’s the extra £20k> required to find those OEM parts (interior, wheels, exhaust etc) especially as so many are NLA or turning that way.

They were included in the auction iirc. Would not have been difficult to return to standard at all.

I was referring to the other CSL that was mentioned with the cage fitted.

It has also been fitted with a Supersprint lightweight race exhaust back box, carbon-fibre engine cover, carbon-fibre cabin filter housing, Eibach spacers, 75mm stud conversion, and Brembo Gran Turismo BBK (8-pot callipers with 380mm discs at the front, 4-pot callipers with 345mm discs at the rear), as well as Parrot Bluetooth and upgraded speakers, plus a discreet Audison amplifier in the boot.

None of those trinkets matter though surely, and in the case of the brakes are subjectively better?

One for the drivers, rather than the heated garage and polishers perhaps? At near enough 70k miles hopefully it just makes enough sense to drive the thing as intended (& has been done in the past!).

Agreed shouldn't matter, especially given how easily it could be returned to standard, but was suggested as a reason it didn't go for more. I think more likely time of the year and maybe slightly more miles than some others.

Either that or they saw your post about crossing continents at 180mph laughdriving

Thought about buying a CSL in the UK a little more than 12 months ago as I expected them to more closely align with LHD prices (and frankly found LHD prices too high, too many other options at that price) and figured at 40-50k for higher mileage it would be a nice car to own. Ah well, missed that boat - seems like none for sale anymore (one that I could find for 80k plus).

Enjoy the cars, they look and sound very special.

Nice SCD video on YouTube with a CS and a 996 RS

I watched that the other day, and enjoyed it, my only mild criticism is that they didn't really capture the CSL signature sound very well (although the bloke described it nicely). The bit where they seemed to be trying to demonstrate it was more exhaust note than anything else, which isn't what it's about.

I think everyone who's ever driven one will remember the first time they heard that induction bark kick in when accelerating hard. It's very addictive !

So anyone bidding on the Driftworks CSL uup for sale?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O5Xd6mUnx9g

97,000 miles on the clock and he is asking £50,000 for it. I can see that being bought and resold by a dealer.

Cariconics have apparently sold their 28k mile example, advertised for £92495. I doubt anyone will find another example for less than £50k ever again.

Not surprised. It seemed a bit under priced. As I watched Phil's film I was guessing at £60,000 as his price.
