W12 Phaeton, fastidious owner as evidenced by both the description and the clean MOT history in recent years. 234,000, £11,990.



Slightly chancing it, in my view. Surely, this is worth £6k at most.

I agree. Might be well cared for, but that's a lot of use by anyone's standard. Plus, Phateons aren't worth a lot even with low mileage.

They have been more recently advertised on AT with quite high asking prices, which I found surprising.

Very dated looking huge money pit of a barge.
A liability on any forecourt.
£2K private sale.

That's not far off the WBAC valuation of £2,190

On the subject of Phaetons - THIS V10 diesel one has done 285,000 miles (less than 20k per year) - and is the lah-di-dah LWB with individual rear seats.

Just been reduced to £3,999 - the advert looks a little desperate to get shot of it. It does have a new engine though...

Show me a W12 on sale anywhere running or not for £2k and I'll go buy it and give you a £1000 finders fee. It's a breaker at that mileage no doubt, even if it's currently running and driving perfectly. It's certainly overpriced but it's nowhere near a £2k car, that's just plain silly. At £6k it would make some sense

It’s a W12 Phaeton not a 2.0tdi Passat.

It’s overpriced but even the cheapest phaeton on AutoTrader is £2,606 and that’s an 07 diesel not a 2010 w12.

Registered Feb '18, so that's 307,000 km in 30 months; that 200 miles per day, every day, non stop including weekends, bank holidays, Christmas and New Years Day for 2 and a half years in a bi-turbo petrol V8...

Don't put yourself down like that.

Now, what do you think of this Phaeton?

Looks incredibly tidy-the driver’s seat looks like it’s done 1/10th of the mileage. Impressive!

I'm intrigued what this will have been used for, it can't be a single persons commute, because if you take off weekends and some holiday it's 300 miles a day, and even with German Autobahns I doubt they do better much better than 4 hours a day.

As a taxi / limo, I can't see why they would pick the AMG over a proper luxury non-AMG S-class.

If someone has run it as a private hire vehicle, well done on the driver for making the numbers work in something fun.

Yes. Or multiple. The C level execs in the family-run form my mum works at are not all out and using a driver at the same time, so they have one posh car and driver to share between them.

Each exec does a combo of driver, air and train, but the driver and the s class are out everyday, clocking up mega miles with one of the execs on board.

My company's former CEO didn't drive. He had a chauffeur driven S63 that shifted him between Frankfurt, Zurich (home) and Luxembourg every week. Mileage soon racks up.

Looks like an ex taxi to me, a 2 year old Skoda Rapid with 214000 miles.
