Yup was me that bought it.
Was looking for a good 12C and saw this at £90k as an approved car + 1 years Mac warranty and decided that although the mileage was up a bit it was good value. Bought it unseen at a decent level below the advertised price incl covered trailer delivery from Glasgow to near Bournemouth and it arrives on Saturday so just a tad excited.

Hopefully it will retain a good % of it's price over the next few years, I'll be only adding about 3-4k per year.
Wow, congratulations! Look forward to seeing some pics when it arrives!

Sounds like a fantastic deal, with the peace of mind of warranty and dealer support. Impressed that you even got more money off an already low price, well done. And looks like a fair few hundred quid of delivery cost thrown in too :0) enjoy in good health.
I can't stop looking at Mclarens at the moment, they seem to offer such ridiculously good value.

That's awesome congrats looked like a lovely car I think the mileage thing gets overplayed tbh but it allows for some bargains to be had that's a serious car for sub 90k...do let us know how you get on with it I hope to get into something similar later this yr.

Congrats... Mileage wouldn't be too much of a concern to me. As people have said any niggles should be well and truly ironed out. Keep us updated how your ownership goes

Thanks for the positive comments.

I certainly intend to enjoy it. After a string of 911's over the years I just wanted something different and a little less common (not deriding Porsche's at all).I've just had an Alfa 4C for a couple of years which is a real hoot but has a couple of irritating flaws but it's certainly an event every time I used it so I'm figuring the 570 will be similar.

Luggage space for Euro trips was also important, the Alfa struggled to take a toothbrush and an overnight bag.

I'll post up some pics over the weekend.

Andy, jeez, Rob mentioned that you might have done something crazy. At least with that many miles already done it might be reliable. I'll pack some spanners and a laptop in the boot of the Ferrari for the Le Mans trip.....

only joshing, exciting, can't wait to see it.

I wanted Rob to get a move and buy one so I thought if I did it it might spur him on!! You can't bring a Ferrari to Le Mans, think of all the miles on it...ruinous!

last I heard I am bringing 3 cars, if I don't bring the fast Fiat it'll be the Panda 4x4 which won't draw much attention on Friday morning that's for sure. nice one with the Macca, proper supercar !

A little off topic but there is a tuned 570s at vmax vs the new M5 with a tune (15 mins in) rather astonishing.. bearing in mind a new M5 can now be picked up for circa 70k.... luckily for the M5 there are no corners at Vmax laugh

M5 Comp rumoured to be about 650hp from the factory despite BM saying it is 625ps. One in the vid is a tuned M5 non Comp of course.

Ha! It’s not just me then! Except I’ll be buried in the 4C, that is never being sold - it’s the ultimate Lancia smile

I realised though, no doubt like you, that basically the only way up from a 4C was a Mac. Once you go exposed carbon tub you can’t go back!
But you can’t take the wife away for the weekend in the 4C, nor talk to anybody in the car or do too much practical. In my case I always wanted to lose the roof, so am looking at Spiders. The Macs currently from the 570s to the 650 Spiders at £110k are just blinding value for me, I can’t see past them!

Glad I’m not the only 4C man who is on this logic train 😎
