Interesting one for me - one of the eight Illiad Blue Phase 1 cars.

Sold mine with 1200miles on the clock, last year... So I guess I made the tiny market at the time.

I think this one was being offered for a lot more than mine around the same time, with no takers.

The more cars I see on CC the more I think they all go for a much higher price than the open market elsewhere, which is odd. Great if your a seller, but if your a buyer - what’s the advantage?
The audi r8 is a good example of that, yes relatively low mileage, but this might end up near £40k which in my mind is extremely expensive for a 2007 car?

I see many examples of sales doing the same - odd.
On the R8, the comments are very funny.

Price wise, I think all the bids so far are just CC&friends bidding. They know what the reserve is so they can just freely bid it to whatever they want to see if a fish can be lured in. Those ‘users’ bid on multiple cars but never bid once it hits reserve, obviously they never win any cars either. It’s part of the act.

£35k for a decent, well maintained v8 R8 is a fair price, £40k is a bit OTT especially with an interior like this one.

Let’s see where the price finishes.

ILYAS_HABIB is bidding on a few. Starts a few, places random ones, then disappears.

‘Shortie’ as well. Bids on many cars, bids it up to close to the reserve, the vanishes.

The way this user has bid on the R8 is just blatantly obviously he’s not interested to buy it.. just to drum up some fish over. It’s not illegal, just rather unethical.

And this is only one problem with cc!

It's just a bit silly and obvious really. I mean, a starting bid of £100 on the old Celica then nothing else, then £47,500 on the Rolls Royce Phantom and nothing before or after smile

Finished £35k so £37k with fees - not too bad really, thought it was heading to/over £40k which would have been a stretch. Low mileage and desirable spec but still a very early car

Well another 550 appeared on CC. This time for the second time.

In July this car reached £62,000 and didn't make reserve so I was looking forward to seeing what interest there was this time and was going to have a bid myself.

However, it didn't even make the auction, it today shows as sold.

Spec was decent but also had a brown interior too IIRC? I'm surprised at £35k-£37k would've been a fair prince but surprised it reached the higher number - wonder if the buyer factored that in?

Was a nice low mileage car though, only thing missing was the carbon side blades but Daytona is a great colour on these.

I've just sold my E30 M3 through these guys and have nothing but praise for them. I dealt with James he sent the photographer down who took some awesome pics. The car went for less than I thought it was worth but that's the market value obviously. The buyer is from Thailand he got in touch the day after the auction finished and transferred the money that day. He has never seen the car and it is still in my garage he's organising transport. I have nothing to do with this company whatsoever but I honestly cannot fault them at all, James was great to deal with the car sold and I have been paid you cannot say fairer than that.

Unlike bloody eBay that I've had nightmares with in the past especially selling these guys delivered on their promise and I feel that the idea of any bidder having to forfeit the 6% if they do not buy the car is spot on. Yes I would have gotten nothing of the buyer pulled out but they run a business and I genuinely did next to nothing so to me that's only fair. I thought it was worth posting as a happy customer who's had a good experience !

Hi,
Does anyone have any thoughts on the 512 bb?
I haven’t had time to inspect so I’m probably looking for reasons not to get hooked.
I know the car didn’t sell at another similar site quite in September.
The other auction gave a lot more detail and video footage, driven and the underbody.
My heads saying walk away as needs a chunk of cash spending?

Just my opinion but when I see things like the odometer being changed and the mileage is ‘believed to be’ - that worries me. Then there’s the accident, the complete change of interior and a full respray to consider too.

Didn't DK Engineering work on it - maybe phone them and get an opinion? Depends what you want from the car but if the chassis is straight and the engine sound it looks like a great way to see out the ICE era with a Ferrari v12 converting fossil fuel into noise and motion just over your shoulder.

Thanks Petrus,
Just been sent a link to another auction site, Trade Sellers.
The car was for sale in September.
The underbody looks *****d and the interior needs a bit more than £500 spending.
I’ll put my wallet away😂
Buying cars on CC is not hassle free!

Listen to your head. Spending that much money on a car with so many potential problems and zero comeback. I would pay the same amount of money and buy from someone who has a reputation to uphold.
