To quote a great man...

You’re all a bunch of knobs thinking you’re all merc experts. Cars like these are going up because they’re rare! Might look st in pictures but you when you seen them on the road I reckon all of you low life keyboard warriors look at them then look on eBay to buy one and you wait prices will be going up higher every 10 years. So enjoy ranting for another 10 years lol
Indeed. I wonder if he ever sold it...it was mint!

Probably not stupidly overpriced but the "looks and drives superb" made me laugh with the mirror hanging off and wiring sticking out of the boot

Great bhai Mohammad will ensure it goes for a full health check before delivering it direct to your door. Nothing to be concerned about whatsoever.

Front bumper is making a bid for freedom too. If a car looks that rough in potato cam pics it will be an absolute scrapper in person!!

And the fit of the back bumper is suspect. Looks like it’s touching tailgate

Have just spent half an hour looking at old Mercs, as you do

Two observations, one dealer seems to be trying to control the market of 80s SLs with lots of stock all at top dollar and a private seller has a fantastic investment opportunity........

I give you the £100k 1991 500SL.....

1/5th of that price would be about right.

'Worth' is subjective, but it's the going rate for one of 49 RHD cars produced, you can always save 50% by going for the much more common coupe of which there are about 250 in the UK. wink

This surely must qualify?

A near 20 year old Boxster with almost 100,000 miles on the clock.

£28,000!!

It's an 'ultra rare' special edition apparently. I'm not an expert on Porsches, but it looks like that means black wheels and bits of black trim.

Very special car, only 11 caring previous owners who all undoubtedly cherished the car

Not saying that this is great value but the 70th Anniversary cars are Porsche backed restorations with many new and refurbished components and the car comes with a 12 month Porsche warranty.

I'd say the last owner spent a few £££'s on it, there's certainly a bit more to it than the Porsche dealers advert says. wink
Didn't sell on here though, wonder what it reached? scratchchin

I know others have hinted at this, but as a 1 of 10 Porsche GB 'restoration' vehicle I'd say this is actually a reasonable price. Sit on it for a few years and you'll make your money back and then some. Previous owners counts for bugger all in the grand scheme since it's allegedly returned to pretty much factory by Porsche GB as part of the process.

Poor advert, tho.

It's an old bog standard car, tarted up by a dealer (not even the factory). A very different thing from an ultra rare factory produced special vehicle.

Sit on it for a few years and it'll just be yet another old tatty Porsche worth a few grand.

Good luck to anyone who gets suckered in by the respray and a few new bits of tat stuck to it, and a number.

Rubbish. You can pick up the same car with lower mileage and fewer owners for about £8k. There is nothing on earth that makes this worth anywhere near twenty eight thousand pounds.

When Porsche sold the 10 restorations they found 10 people who thought they were worth £30,000, they are now just looking for person number 11. wink
