Zippy then is a buyer from Targa Florio which would explain the many bids on different cars.

So not a CC employed ringer fraudulently bidding up multiple auctions as insinuated then?

Odd spectrum of cars bid on for that outfit. Unbelievable, almost.

A 1952 Aston Martin DB 2/4 with a lovely patina today, got very eclectic taste if genuine.

I've sold via CC and they did shift a 911 for me that I had struggled to sell so can't fault them for that.

With regard due diligence there is almost none done other than asking the owner so eyes wide open on that front. This is normal for auctions and shouldn't be overlooked just because Chris Harris helps to promote it.

Don't lift your reserve

Don't lift your reserve

Oh and one last tip don't lift your reserve biggrin

They seem to have had some mixed results recently the 458 Special must have been an utter gut punch for the owner. On the other hand they shifted a complete shed of an Exige for £5000 more than what I thought it was worth (with fees)

I think the novelty factor is probably wearing off a tad now but it can still be a good platform for the right cars. The capped buyers fees make it a far better option for a lot of much more expensive cars. They are very low volume when you sit and watch Silverstone rattle through 100 cars in a day though so still early days for them. Covid has probably served them well!
I thought both speciales sold really well considering the lack of warranties etc. The winning bid on the F8 on the other hand must have been a kick in the ?? for the owner

He won the bidding on the Exige too last week
Nice markup of c.40% if they get close to the asking price. Not many bargains like that on CC.

I guess if you deal in a wide variety of sports/prestige cars you can bid on plenty and will get lucky with a good buy on some.

Wouldn't be the only dealer using it to source stock. For example:

Doesn’t look like it’ll meet reserve.

Nice spec but not sure about the Carbon skirts myself

The seller of that won’t be happy I’m sure.

Reading the description, the collecting cars self proclaimed ‘enthusiasts’ cant even spell the name of the Ferrari servicing dealer correctly.

Didn’t sell, can’t have met reserve.

Interesting that it’s a trade sale with such a high spec

What did it get bid up to?

458s outside the main dealer networks do stick oddly despite them been one of the most reliable supercars....

Yellow and racing harnesses (absolute pain to live In a 458 on the road) with will have restricted the buying pool somewhat.

Convinced "zippy' is a bot, bids on literally everything, from high end, to crap.

Even if it's won auctions, doesn't mean it's gone through.

A couple of users here complained about that, including the guy with the Diablo...

Well he bought the Mustang last week for £38,888 so let's see if it gets to Targa Florio Cars
