This LHD 550 sold today - originally Yellow and missing the original service book although there are copies on file.
£38,000 hammer price.

That's cheap. But the colour change massively devalues it, and the mileage.

Colour change is straightforward on these as there is no body colour applied in the engine bay or around the door hinges.

Hope if checks out as could be a great buy.

With the wheels back to OE silver and stick on shields removed, what’s not to like.

You'd think it would be hard to lose much on it.

Colour change might be straightforward but it always poses questions as to why and whether there is something hidden in the history. There might not be but it raises questions.

This car was for sale at Wimbledon Carriage Co in Feb 2015 for £63,995. Then at Slades in June to August 2016 for £89,950. Then private sale Jan to Feb 2017 for £72,950 then £69,950. Then again August 2017 to Jan 2018 for £68,950, reduced to £67,950 then £64,950 then £63,950. Then at KHPC in Jan 2018 for £64,995 although listed as sold almost immediately. No sale at Bonhams July 5th Goodwood auction.

So, quite an interesting (to me anyway!) little graph of asking prices for this one car over the last four years or so.

Good knowledge. I thought that I had come across it before. Gotta love a Slades asking price!

Well you can't really go wrong at that price, it's a good value driver and I hope it's enjoyed by the new owner.

It has to be worth that value as a breaker.

I forgot this sale was on. Glad someone else was on the ball.

Does anybody knows this car?

https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/...

Seems to have been in storage for the past 8 years, covering less than 1000 over that time. The MOT history shows quite a few advisories that were ignored, presumably because the car wasn’t driven.
It’s also fairly high mileage too but looks good from pics. I am thinking of paying the dealer a visit.
Price would be more palletable if it started w a “6”...

Wow, that is some serious tracking on the price history.

How do you go about getting this type of information if you don't mind me asking?

Hard to see real value in ‘a breaker’.

Eurospares have this low Kms LHD in which was written off in 2019. I wonder what parts have been stripped off it at this point?

Only special builders would want the drivetrain. I suppose that the majority of the body could be carefully salvaged and could help get another car that might be faced with a write-off for non-structural damage.

That's my old car! I bought it from Wimbledon and eventually sold it through KHPC. Took it on a fantastic trip through Europe with my then fiancé, now wife. I'd sold my 612 to get it and now I'm back in a 612 as we have a little one! I'd forgotten about the colour change; the paint job was good. I believe KHPC put a new clutch and cambelts on it as well as sorting front end stone chips and sticky switches. The shields and painted wheels are not my doing.

That car was immaculate before the accident.

It was in storage and a tree fell on the roof of the building in which it was being stored during a storm, the owner is a member of Fchat.

Just seen this. Big fan of the 550 ( But sadly never been in one )
Has anyone on here viewed the red 550 that is for sale on the A414 Ongar to Chelmsford road ?
Think it's on @ £79,995 passed it many times recently on the R1, but not had a chance to stop and take a look !

I have often thought about buying such a thing and putting a classic Ferrari body on it, something lik a 250 SWB but from memory the wheelbase is too wide.

If it was RHD I would probably buy it and do it

Wheelbase is about 3" out, the track is about 11" off......

Pretty sure one of the Italian coachbuilders did something like that a few years ago.

And there was definitely a short run of Zagato 575's.
