Not for the first time ...
Fabulous, original cars with histories that present as an opportunity not to be missed until one asks questions!
Seem to be fewer and fewer dealer/retail quality examples.

'Zippy' has a very eclectic taste doesn't he! And cash burning a hole in his pocket... "bidding" everything from Exige to Testarossa to RS6 to Land Rover to Elan to McLaren to Continental to Escort to 575M to 8 Series ......

All perfectly legal of course, provided the chandelier doesn't get greedy and bid above the reserve. Sloppy to reuse usernames tho...

It’s not just zippy, been watching repeat user names bidding since the start. They bid up to the reserve then obviously drop off the side of the earth.

Cc just want cars ok their site, the couldn’t care less about history, condition or who’s bidding as long as it gets to the reserve they get paid.

Compulsive bidder,...

Zippy is now bidding on all of these at the moment: the white Testarossa, silver DB7, black Mercedes e220d, blue m4, silver Lotus Elan, black 991 turbo, black 968cs, black RS6, black Cayenne, black TVR, Land Rover Series IIA, silver 570S, burgundy Continental R, black 575, red 308, silver 840ci, red Esprit turbo, ...

He loves everything and must have deep pockets and a huge warehouse to park all this should he win.

So Zippy is either someone who is “living the dream” or a house account...either way it’s not a good look for CC. It it’s someone bidding on multiple lots for fun they could if they wanted stop someone doing it to have long term credibility. But then they could leave all lots up that didn’t selll, all the bidding histories, not remove lots just before auctions close etc etc But they don’t.

My guess is within a year BaT move to Europe and then it’s all over red rover.

Do they bid on anything without a reserve?

That would be great. There would be a language issue though, unless they create one marketplace per country.

I thought CC had planned to expand to NL in September?

It already has...sort of. International Collectibles have a tie up in NL with a company called Differs Group, a lot of the LHD cars they have are Differ's cars which they market to their clients. Like this uber rare 964 C Lightweight https://www.internationalcollectables.com/Cars/For... and here is the same car at Differs https://www.differsgroup.nl/porsche-964-leichtbau/

No funny business it's just them JV'ing.

Some of the cars sold through CC are cars that Differs manage for Dutch clients. They're priced in Euro's.
