Some interesting sale prices, does anyone think these are a little on the low side?

As new sls amg 63 black series for less than £125k

Restored Ferrari certified 1973 Daytona for less than £375k

As new 458 Ferrari speciale aperta for £318k

I thought current retail asking prices would of been around the following?

As new sls amg 63 black series around £200k
Ferrari Certified Daytona around £500k
As new 458 Ferrari speciale aperta £500k

Or am I miles out?
Once you add import duties and VAT onto those numbers, suddenly they are not quite so cheap.

G63 AMG 6X6 for three quarters of a million?





A rarity?

Investment value?
Not especially rare in uae, there are 3 for sale on the local auto trader equivalent. Cheaper than the hammer price as well.

I was at the auction, did think some prices were odd. The Daytona for one went very cheaply. The 275gts was just stunning. However I’m not at all surprised that it was the modern trinkets which attracted the big money.

From what I hear, only 8 cars (from 200+)sold at the auction in saudi the week before

That LFA seems cheap, surprised to see it met reserve too, somebody got a bargain imo
It was offered without a reserve. It seems cheap compared to European prices, but there's another currently for sale in Dubai for $450k.

That monstrosity, or the LFA and Countach from the same sale with some change left over...
