This seems awfully cheap, AD reads badly but other than that is there some known history on this car?

I know of this owner, been a few drives with us and seen his car around London. I don't know history of the car but I assume it's priced around what the dealer would take it in as a trade plus the mileage is pretty high, nearing 10,000. It also looks like it's missing a few options because they're not listed such as LDS & Sensonum audio.

that does seem cheap, I was given more as a p/x for my year older coupe with similar mileage to that for a well priced convertible Perf.
The market is obviously going one way!

has been on sale a long time, originally 212k then 208k for quite a while. Was the first spyder to go near 200k, now you have main dealer spyders that can be had for 200k or a little less so he has to price it accordingly. Easily the highest milage spyder I have seen advertised also.
When I was looking most spyders I looked at had sub 3k miles as the owners had multiple supercars etc.

Never you mind

Matt black perf when I was looking was up at £199 now up for 169K. Glad I decided to wait before I get one as it looks like I could save myself 30/50K.

Proof that your first profit is always your best profit.

Friend was interested in this and bid £210k when it was up for £220k from memory, the chap owed more to settle his finance and didn't want to budge, clearly paying the price now.

Tip of the ice berg, plenty more of this to come IMO.

I tried to buy a used 991.1 gt3 privately around 8 months ago, same situation car was financed up to the hill. In the end he then tried to sell it via a dealer and still failed. Glad I didn't buy it if I'm being honest as it would of taken quite a hit over the last 8 months and that was still buying it 10k above its real trade value at the time.

Just in case you missed it, and are thinking about a Performante, here’s the Grand Tour’s review...

I've been following this thread with great interest as, having just sold my R8 V10 Plus, I will shortly (the 1st quarter of next year) be a cash buyer for one of these great cars - coupe.

Having been keeping an eye on the market over the last few months, currently dealer prices, (and private?) seem to be between £170-210k
It's hard to know who owns what and how many are on SOR, plus what margins the dealers have in them; around £25K? Also indy/private prices don't seem to be any less than official dealers.

There doesn't seem to be much of a churn in the cars being advertised, which leads me to think;
a) Hardly anything is selling right now.
b) Cars are selling and the dealers are leaving the adverts up to lure you in.
c) Most of the advertised cars are on SOR with owners asking un-realistic prices.

Most of the cars seem to have the bucket seats, which is my preferred option; a couple of dealers that I've spoken too, denied that they would bid less (£7-8k has been mentioned earlier in this thread) for such cars, but I guess they wouldn't say anything else.

I’ve also been advised that the clocking of Huracan’s is rife at the moment.

I've been watching a private orange car for the last few weeks and the price has been going up and down like a yoyo.

Which way do you think the market is heading on the HP going into 2020; will prices continue to drop, stabilise or increase?

Which colours do you think best suit the car and what are the must have options spec. wise?

Is it essential to buy from within the Lamborghini network or would you risk going to an indy/buy privately and have it inspected?

TIA

I’d always buy in the network. The customer service with Lamborghini is very good and I think if you have an issue the dealer would look upon more favourably if you bought in the network.
No idea where the markets going but it won’t be going up again for a while that I am confident about. There is over supply in the market at the moment so the laws of supply and demand will take its natural effect I would think!

Thanks sone for your comments.

Am I right in thinking that there are only about 200 HP coupes in the UK?

According to www.howmanyleft.co.uk there are a total of 323 Performantes registered in the UK, and this includes both coupes and spyders. The spyder was only on sale for a little more than a year so you can probably assume that there are more coupes than spyders out there. All things considered your estimate of 200 UK registered coupes seems reasonable.

I reckon around 200 coupes, not many MY19 coupes because most of the MY19 cars were spyders.
