Seems to be priced a little low compared to other LPs of the same age?

Advert suggests it’s an import, therefore I’d be sceptical about the mileage.

It almost feels as though there’s going to be a catch of some sort with it

Ah yes. Didn't catch the "registered in the UK in 2016" part. I imagine that's the put off. Would probably seem less shady if that was written up front with a bit of context rather than a footnote.

Does seem more at Gen one price,

Sure if you dig enough you may find there's a story there somewhere.

Prices do seem like they are dropping especially on the higher mileage average examples with £45K and £49,950

asked recently , Only one out of three Gallardo's sold at Iconic Auction over the weekend which went for £48,000 hammer price with

only 32,000 miles,

I thought it might be that car just from the OPer's wording. biggrin

So if it's an import, is it mainly because we don't really know the mileage? If it was say £52k, could that actually be a bargain if it really has say 50k miles on it? Nicely run in etc. I suppose having a full service history with invoices of work done would be unlikely.

Prices are getting tempting. It would offset the £5kpa slush fund nicely. I'm baulking at paying £60k+ for one and then having to chuck £5k a year at it. Paying £50k doesn't seem so bad as I'd only own it for a year or two. biggrin

It says it has main dealer servicing until the last two services. If thats from new then it would be worth a look if its got a decent history ,certainly wouldnt put me off being an import.

These are looking very tempting at this money.

Was browsing Gallardos today on AT and am shocked at how much the prices have fallen in a couple of years, Gen 1 and LPs.

On topic - I saw that specific car when browing was shocked it has the same super cheap and st head unit in it as I stuffed in my Transit van. A super basic pioneer unit. Most odd. You can grab one for £30 on ebay.

I'm interested in this car I've made a couple of calls waiting a call back. My thoughts being if it was a jap import nissan skyline no one would bat an eye lid, as its a lambo it worries us.

A wise inspection, long with a saving on price then researching its history abroad whilst owning it might make it worth a good investment not dropping much vs the dealer priced cars at the minute.

I'll let you know if I spot anything unusual

You're right about the Skyline import thing. I've bought 2 Skylines that were imports. Didn't even think about the history. nuts Mind you, they were under £20k at the time so relatively cheap compared to the Lambo.

I have suspected something, the reg is no longer on the car, ive left messages and had a text from a mobile, called the mobile and it was a tesco mobile answer machine. The name given can't be found on facebook or linked in so at the moment not looking positive yet, you never know though

Interesting. It's odd that they'd actually pay Autotrader to advertise. I'd have put multiple scams on Facebook Marketplace.

Exactly that, Autotrader and PH are littered with ads of cars that are too good to be true. You call and email and never get a response, they just want to harvest your contact details. Next week you'll get an email from a Nigerian Princess in distress........
