Yes , I’m kicking myself I should have got to it earlier .

My other two options are with 4K more miles or 4K less miles but 5k more expensive . The later has been with the dealer since July last year .
As mentioned before if you have no luck feel free to DM or Email me. I might have some info that would be of interest to you for sure (possibly one of the most sorted and highly specced ones I know of)

EDinburgh car is in good order I looked at it but I wanted a black car. It had a previous advisory on manifolds on the mot a couple of years ago. They would deal at £90k when I spoke to them about 4 weeks ago.

Just an update on where I’m up to :

The Graypaul Nottingham car sold before I got to it .this had the desirable Daytona seats and looked a decent buy , however someone else must also have felt the same .

I enquired about the Edinburgh car and the salesperson was kind enough to send me a video , however I was off put by scuff marks on the drivers seat and 8 previous owners , which I thought was a lot .

Next up was a car at Meridien Modena , which had sold on the weekend before I enquired , despite being with them since July last year .

I have enquired about the vehicle at Graypaul Birmingham today , which despite not having Daytona seats does have the drivers side bolster in pretty decent condition.

The stamps all look good , although curiously for a car that has done less than 16k it has done less than one thousand miles in the last 9 years ?

So 14k in its first two years and hardly anything since .

Best wishes ken

Graypaul Birmingham sold it to the last (and third) owner in 2009 when it was on 14k miles. So it is basically that the last owner has barely used it whereas the previous two did.

Interestingly it has only been listed for 6 weeks and they've knocked 7k off the asking price (although it is still more than they asked for it in 2009!).

I keep track of Ferraris. It has grown from work I did originally for the Ferrari Owners' Club but after they lost interest I have carried on.

So is this car known to you ?
I has had a Jekyll and Hyde mileage . But there does nt seem to be anything untoward in its service history apart from a missed mot in 2018

I don't know it other than that it is an entry in my database and haven't seen it personally. As far as I can tell, from the information I have and without seeing the car, the mileage is simply down to one owner using it differently (and very little) compared to the others.
