Been for sale for 7 weeks so defo needed an increase in price to garner more interest! Braindead stuff
Common practice with the lower end supposedly prestige car dealers.

I believe its when a third party or dealer etc puts the car on for you so you don't have to deal with the transaction. Pretty handy if you're busy or don't want to look a person in the eyes who's pants you are having down as a random example relating not at all to any past or present CC transaction of course.
Made me laugh, So funny smile. ( and so very very true)

I noticed that the CC 600LT was a 'Managed Sale' - anyone know what that means?

Thanks for clarifying. wink

So presumably out of the selling price the third party will get a Fee?

Maybe he has had a few low ball offers and bumped the price to distract from chancers?

Seem to remember the seller listing a few issues with it when on CC,, amazingly (67) 720s for sale on AT, must be some sort of record

Loads of 720, 600, 570 were sold on ridiculously low finance deals back in the day, unsurprised that they are now coming onto the used car market.

I've noticed a couple of cars which were previously listed by dealers, disappeared, and have now re-appeared as private sales at lower asking prices. Presumably they were offered SOR, and have now ended up on the 'R' part of the acronym.

Back to prices; the following cars seem to have disappeared from AT since this Monday:
...
570S for £98,990 2019 on 17,000 miles, last sighted on 2022-11-08 at Prestige Cars pic
...
Now offered privately for £95k https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202211191...

This week's update as requested, changes since Saturday 12th

Sold Cars
...
570GT for £91,990 2016 on 17,000 miles at The Auto Lounge Limited pic
...
Now offered privately for £86.5k https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202211221...

Not drawing any conclusions, just posting as a kind of 'correction' to the previous assumption that they had sold.

I hope whoever bought it is fully aware of these issue, to say the sellers agents comments are misleading is an understatement , doesn’t look good on CC either selling cars such as this one on their site,
Who knows, they might be and feel the 20-30k discount compared to rest of market covers their risk.
They may not and be very upset and even more upset if they cannot get their 6k back from CC.


The problem is people see an auction and bid on it, they win and feel they got a great deal.
But if I they see the car advertised say on AT or PH say at 129k then alarm bells are ringing as to why its 20-30k below rest of market.
Unless I am doing something wrong, I can't seem to find the McLaren 600LT in the SOLD section of CollectingCars. Perhaps the buyer learnt more about the car and pulled out of the sale? or it is infact sold but CC don't want their reputation tarnished knowing they have been selling cars like this on their website?

Hi there

As there is quite a bit negativity around the brand I thought I'd share my positive example this morning.

Gave Mclaren Manchester a call a couple of weeks ago about my 600 LT Spider having an in cabin resonance when the roof was up which to me sounded like a heatshield come lose in the engine bay and also mentioned the front arch liner had come loose.

They collected the car end of last week and then prompty got it on their ramps:



Picture service manager sent me on whatsapp.

They confirmed the heatshield was loose and an undertray slightly out of position. They ordered the parts in and correct these, they fixed the arch liner and then gave the car a health check along with pressure testing the coolant system and checking all the hoses and clamps looked in good condition, all passed.

Car returned to me this morning, all hassle free, all free of charge and even a box of mints put in the car.

Amazing service by Mclaren Manchester and Sam their service guy really is a superstar, Praise when praise is due and all that! smile

It's good to read these types of posts - all too easy to post negative stuff and over the last couple of years I've seen videos less than complementary of McManchester.

Considering the 675LT thread that was deleted earlier this week, does seem to be good and not-so good dealers but you get that with every brand I guess.

While the listing isn't browseable, the page is still up at the original URL as quoted below:

Keep your eye on the “no reserve” 600LT Spider on CC, it’s been enjoyed with the front end looking a bit peppered, be interesting to see what the hammer goes down at ??

The page shows Ended/Unsold, but the page markup still has 'pricesold' of £115k. So presumably after the auction ended, the winning bidder declined to go through with the purchase for whatever reason.

Did you have any more info on the 78.5k 570GT at Sytner select being the cheapest on sale?

I think the vast majority of owners have a positive experience, i certainly cant fault Mc NewForest at all on the service they provided, absoultely impeccable in my mind.

Most of the negativity is from non owners who heard it from a mates next door neighbours postman, or clickbait chanells like Jayemm, sure his pals didnt get a good experience by the sounds of it, but, it doesnt represent the majority.

Thats the trouble with todays society, the minorities want to shout so loudly about every little thing they dont like about the world.

I think it is the Internet that causes half the problems - so much easier to vent on Social media and find other people's venting.


We must be the luckiest car owners in the world, we took a MR2 roadster to 100k and it didn't eat it's precats, ran a Maserati Gransport for 6 years without needing a recovery truck, put 6 figure mileage on a manual Diesel with no DMF failure, and have had a Z4M for 5 years that hasn't eaten it's rod bearings or VANOS or spat us backwards into a hedge.

Still don't feel lucky enough to risk McLaren's paint quality though frown
