Yes those ‘new budget tyres’ on those wrong colour wheels on a car with no AC almost got me buying it but alas my limit was £9500+ fees :sadfacebutnotreallyasitseemsmentaltome:

On the opposite end of the scale to that type-r, this must've really hurt the seller...

£5676 for a near-perfect 1987 MR2 has to be a bargain? Looks like the current owner has spent thousands getting it to this standard. But as much as it shouldn't matter, the seller really should have replaced the 9 year old tyres before selling.

Bloody christ I forgot about that! I quite fancied a punt on it.

Yes, very strange how little that went for. Find another one!

All the work was done before the current owner bought it. I'd say he's spent very little on. Not even put fresh tyres on it. The pics show just the arches being replaced and note there is some bubbling again (trade talk for rotten). I'd say they probably want doing again soon.

I’m wondering if it would make sense, in the case of the reserve not being met, to offer the car at the reserve price to the highest bidder? I was the highest bid on a car recently, but unfortunately didn’t meet the reserve. If the difference wasn’t great, I may have considered increasing the bid to meet the reserve.
You’d have thought they’d be in touch, unless it was a big gap.
In their sales bumph they say they'll consider making up the difference if a sale falls short of the reserve to get the sale through - in other words they take less commission but some is better than none I guess - this would suggest that highest bid was at least 6% less than reserve

Guess that makes sense.

In other news, £36,500 for the Audi R8 v10 spider. I think someone should feel pretty happy right now with that!

Yup, that looks like a complete bargain. Even with the buyers premium it’s a good few grand behind retail value.

No comment on the 308? ~60k for a RHD fibreglass car seems pretty good, despite it not being totally original.

3 minutes to go. 190e for £900. Minimum buyers fee adds £600.... They're worth more aren't they or is this just the wrong car for this type of platform / audience?

  • *** Edit: sold £900. Makes paying another 60% for buyers fee seem odd

I've never seen one in the flesh.

Is it just a fancy interior difference to the IQ?

Or is it much more?

No, not much more at all.

I bid on the 308 but wasn’t prepared to go any further than £50k including commission. You just don’t know what you’re going to find until you start stripping back, it’s evidently been a hill climb / track toy and you can clearly see a lot rust at the bottom of the A pillar in the photos. Yes even the fibreglass cars rust! The car is easily found online in racing guise (roll cage etc) and on the gallery section of the garage where the recent front corner was rebuilt. I’ve had two 308s (both I restored) so know these cars well. Great track toy for someone but worth restoring to a high standard is debatable when other options are available and given its racing history.

I’m confident there is some serious shopping to come in the last quarter or first quarter 2021 so no need to get carried away.

I also bid on the red/Crema 355 spider and I was astounded to see what the car went for. I was out at £68k including commission. That’s the same figure the car sold for back in January this year. Same car failed to sell at Silverstone auctions last year. You don’t have to look far to find a similar spec’d car (with warranty) via a specialist dealer.

I suggest some people are getting carried away with auction fever, easily done and of course part of the fun trying to see if you can win the auction. Full credit to collecting cars for finding a niche in the market. How long some of these prices continue for is debatable.

But why has a V10 got V8 wheels? Looks odd.
