Seems strange. Wonder what story is behind it?

It could have mechanical issues. Copart will taking anything in that generates them a commission.

Join the Facebook page ‘Copart Victims’ to see the number of people who buy cars listed in this way and the issues they have when they’re delivered!

Definitely not beeen loved.

Mileage discrepancy flagged, airbag warning light on, and is that a puddle underneath from the car ?

Cant see anyone proper being very interested in this.

Maybe some of the shady "supercarinnit,com" type dealers.

Don’t walk, run. Seller using Copart to get rid of a vehicle with numerous issues.

As for the Copart Victims page, too many people thinking they can make a quick pound reselling salvage vehicles. They quickly find out it isn’t that easy, but the same people would be victims no matter what they do. The sooner they feck off the better for everyone.

Personally I wouldn’t buy anything from Copart unless I had seen it or had it checked out beforehand and it needs to be collected immediately. Though you could always buy the missing parts back off eBay.

Battery has been off a while as the IRIS says the date is 1970.

I don't get it/can't find it? Some McLaren's like the 650S have some parts on still on back order from January this year & are not expected until April next year. That's 2023! Oh, they apologise alright, will they reimburse me the depreciation whilst mine's stood idle? Will they give me a loaner even a Fiesta or Corsa? Er um, well no! Will they give me a fair trade in and a health discount if I upgrade to a newer model? Also for my brand loyalty as that would negate and criticism I could have them? Er, um well NO! I couldn't very well go round slagging McLaren off if I came from a McLaren & went straight to a McLaren next! Oh, well looks like I'll be checking out the coffee at my local Ferrari dealers showrooms shortly.
