I don't really agree, the cheapest one on PH is £27k and the only cheaper one on Autotrader is the one that was first owned by the 70 year old lady. It's bounced around 3 different dealers for 2 years now with various issues. We know someone who was offered it as trade for £16k and turned it down.

If my mate's goes for around £20k I reckon it's a bit of a bargain-I can certainly see it at a dealer's for £25k and it selling-it needs zero spent on it.
Sure.

I thought i'd spotted one on PH's at 22k but maybe i'm mistaken.

Whats the story with the one owned by the 70yr old lady ? I've just spotted it on AT

I had a look at the pics and yes its in amazing condition.

Watching with interest

That’s the 70 year old lady one, it’s still on AT although down as a private sale.

They’re funny things to value. I can’t ever see them going stratospheric in price (but then who knows?) but they’ve definitely gone up. They settled at around £16k for years, then seemed to go up to early £20k, now?

Which one did you buy off CC?

Who bought it ? Did it go to a dealer or punter did you see ? I had to leave when it was about to close at 155,500, supper time !

Personally i think it sold pretty well. By the time the buyer has paid the £6k fee he paid £178,500. If Pancake was a dealer he'll need to advertise at £200k to allow some negotiating wiggle room and the VAT to be paid on the margin. Not a lot of profit left unless he ask way above £200k.
Really stunning car in Ferrari Yellow and i hope Richard was satisfied with the sale.

Pancake won it.

Maybe he's a dealer or better still its a private guy.

I love watching the closing sales with CC's although in this instance it'd loved to have seen it go for north of 200 for the seller

Thanks, yes if that was a private buyer he’s done well. Main thing is that I hope the seller is happy, it’s very hard to gauge if CC is a good forum for such a specialist car.

The Litchfield suspension development Yaris made £41,500 for the seller on Collecting Cars auction site tonight. The buyer pays another 6pcnt on top in fees. So that auction site certainly is getting the views !

Exactly this. I'm guessing Pancake is a dealer but if i'm wrong and he's a private buyer then he bought pretty well. If bought by a dealer i still think he'll have his work cut out to make a worthwhile profit.

Thanks everyone smile

Going into the final stages of an auction with no reserve on a car of this value is certainly not for the feint hearted smile

I’m pretty sure the buyer is an enthusiast which is great as it’s an epic, cherished car.

I think he got a decent deal and I’m not unhappy with the sale price - I thought it was worth a bit more compared to the competition, but I was obviously wrong. As I say, I’m happy enough and really hope that the new owner is delighted with the car and enjoys it as much as I have. It’s a brilliant example mechanically, condition wise and also in terms of it’s provenance - I’m going to really miss it but luckily I have a free half share in seawise’s car.

In terms of price - if Ashgoods thought it was worth £k178 inc costs - they’d want to make at least £k6; so £k 184 - maybe retail start price of £k189 & that’s Ashgoods - remember most would take much more (& market for more) so at £k 178.5 inc fees, I think it’s a really good buy.

This is why CC is so good - it does it’s job very efficiently, cheaply and importantly quickly.

Also, it gets to the right price of a car at that particular point in time. Seller gets more than they’d get if selling to a dealer (if they need the money quickly) and buyer doesn’t pay anymore dealer margin than 5% or £k6 max - it’s a brilliant business model and in time, will change the industry beyond recognition.

I’d recommend and use them again - very impressive modern, business.

Have to say I thought that was an amazing price - £k6.5 overs inc Litchfield stuff for an 800 miles car - amazing

I think you did pretty well all things considering. AS you quite rightly say the sale process CC employs is extremely transparent and very quick.!
It has garnered a well deserved rep for selling specialist cars in a market usually dictated by sharks, so good luck to them and i wish them every success in the future,
