It's the white Elms Collection car again but with a price increase!
It has full Lamborghini service history, is a UK supplied car and has the 'must have high rear wing', where's Sarnie?
There will be an excuse why he can’t or won’t buy it I’m sure and will wait another ten years rolleyesbiglaugh

The asking price is strong, imo.

How much was it when you were asking after it before?

I never asked after it all. Just saying, I think £110k is strong money for a SL1.

As is the Eric Clapton car at £120k.........identical car at VVS for £99k unsold for months...........and the black 12k car at £99k since before Christmas....these cars seemed to be desired by people like us but I don't think that the wider market sees them like we do and they seem to stick around.....

Sorry I thought it was the other poster who was chasing it and made out that he was so upset that they thought they had missed it. So now it’s back available at a slightly higher price your suddenly not quite so upset after all! You claim you have waited ten years too.

You are another Walter Mitty of Pistonheads along with the all apparent M3 touring buyers on General Gassing who like to say i would of bought something until the actual opportunity arises.

What a joke.

It might be the HDR pictures, but the wheels look lighter than standard?
You're right, the HDR has made them look lighter. The car is completely stock.

Not sure what your problem is? You need to relax yourself.

I did enquire about it immediately yes, but was then told it was sold within about 30 mins of the advert going live. I was/am interested but the original price of £105k was still high in my opinion and would have looked to negotiate that downwards, in line with other cars that are sitting unsold. I certainly wouldn't pay the increased price, but thats just me.

Yes, I've wanted one for ten years. but over those ten years I've had kids, bought houses and other things that have meant that the stars never aligned at the right time as when cars became available. I've considered some cars over years but either the asking price was beyond what I'd expect it to be worth, too high mileage, imperfect service history, LHD, imported car etc etc....

The reality, with so many cars gone abroad, is that I may have to bend on my requirements somewhat to buy one now.....which may or may not lead to me buying one.

I would imagine that this is the same for lots and lots of buyers out there, not so sure why this would be so offensive to you personally?

Pistonheads is a forum that seems to attract people who like to express pointed opinions with a complete lack of understanding of the person about whom the pointed opinions are aimed at. Mind you, I have described the essence of most social media! Ignore and rise above, Sarnie.

I am not sure if the Grey suits it? The history gap may be a concern, but it’s had 7 owners. Isn’t that a lot for resale?

I guess a Clapton fan will buy it and it’s half the price of a 430 Scuderia.

It is puzzling that the car was registered then went nearly 3 1/2 years and 7500 miles before being serviced? Could it have been shipped out of the Country initially for a spell?

If it was registered in the UK, exported and then re-imported, would that show up on a HPI?
