I'll start off with this. I suppose the dealer is chancing his arm just a bit.

All depends on how much you want the car as to how overpriced they are. Someone will buy it.

Yep...but it's just down to hype and cartelism. Whilst punters remain unable to see through this the game can still be played. Once sufficient numbers have been fleeced the cartels move on to some other car or model and do the same all over again.

I actually don't think the CSLs are by any means the "worst culprit" at the moment. At least they are both an exciting thing to drive and have a reasonable rarity. I'd place something like the Mercedes Pagoda far higher up the ranking! Pretty? Yes...Rare?...No...Any good to drive?...Absolutely bloody well not! Worth anything like the money?....LMAO!

Triumph TR5 - a TR6 but with a prettier body, but is it worth 100% more?

The market will dictate what any car is worth. Split Screen VW buses are up near £100k for a perfect example. Are they worth that - they must be if someone is willing Ito pay it...

The E30 M3. They go for silly money and have only risen so much in the past few years.

I'd say Bristol, but only based on reading the thread about their marketing somewhere here

Also the Plymouth Roadrunner Superbird

Various flavors of Porsche 911, prices of some are just insane. That RS 4.0 going for more than the price of a Carrera GT a few months ago springs to mind. The M3 CSL is an example who's value has just sky rocketed in no time at all. A couple years ago I had my heart set on one as a potential purchase for when we sold a property. By the time we'd got the house up to scratch and sold it the cost of a nice 30-40k mile example had gone from low to mid twenties to well into the forties. Ridiculous. Bought a Z4M instead.

BMW Z8's

Nice to look at, but generally it didn't live up to expectations.
