The Pista went cheap didn’t it?
Seems about right with fees, I'm sure the comments didn't help.

I seem to see the same usual bidders names every time I look at a car. They must be dealers.

The dealer I traded my 599 with recently put it on the site but it didn't sell. The bids seemed quite healthy so I wonder why.. someone back out after viewing it? or was the reserve set too high

Prices and condition must be alright if dealers are bidding and winning cars. Maybe they pay a lower commission?

Do you remember those ‘Where’s Wally’ books?

This is turning into where’s Zippy.

Who’ll be the first to say ‘I’m Zippy’?

I'm all for dealer's trade/stock prices being public knowledge. More of this please.

£8k mark up on that Exige is bonkers imo.

It'll be his undoing like a lot of celebrities. Anyone in the public eye shouldn't be seen anywhere near this cesspool. To be fair, he didn't come across well on PH when he used to post on here, he got into a spat with me and started spouting all manner of ste.

No such thing as bad publicity as they say.

Harris is well established. Being allegedly connected with CC's wont do him any harm. Only serves to keep his name in car circles.

Turns out the owner of CC's and he are mates and Harris has no direct financial interest.

Hell, if Harris was my mate and i was starting a car business i'd be plastering his name all over it !

£61k plus commission for an early MP4-12C with what I’m guessing is average mileage for an 8 year old example. Cheap or ‘on the money’ for the times we are currently living through?

It looks a bit unloved and what a terrible colour combination.

Nice colours, but possibly not on the same car!

Agreed,
Once you factor in all the overheads,car prep,warranty,profit margin and px contribution it’s not enough .

To be clear that Exige was appalling. It was a track experience car in terrible condition. I would be interested to know what level of prep Targa Florio have done as I valued it at around £20000. It needed a respray/refresh inside I would guess it has no documented history too plus we haven't seen underneath it! £25k winning bid the owners must still be wiping the tears of laughter from their eyes!

I think CC need to be a bit careful that the platform isn't used to get strong money for ste. It looks to be a great option for high end cars with the capped fees. The guy that bought the £500k 911 has a good deal as normal auction houses would have inflated the price by many multiples of the £6000 CC charge.

Injecting a bit of DD into the listings would be a good idea.

Good buy that Mac. Interior colour not great but having owned one red leather car, it's not as bad as you think. Looks like only setas and door cards, so could be quite easily dyed black I reckon.

The main problem for anyone listing their car on CC IMO is this very thread, people who have no intention of bidding and / or cannot afford to, slagging off and impacting seller's assets, questioning everything and anything, groundless scare mongering.

Then when you look at their 'garages' they either don't show one, or they have a 300zx 'lowered' with bake bean can exhausts and half of Halfords glued on it, and there they are slagging of someones Enzo "Are wouldn't buy it, naaa, too risky, I think it might have a broken chassis, I think it might be clocked, a mate of my mates dads cousin's mum told me it's not originally red, it was factory pink"

On CC you can only post questions if you are bidding, keeps out people who have no interest in the car, or who can't afford it. So they come on here and puke.

Been thinking the same,CC have contacted me regarding listing a couple of my cars that i've been thinking about selling.

The two things that put me off is the open E mails and questions for all to read including any none buyers ,just watchers.

And the washer woman line that is the PH forum who have no interest in your car apart from bad mouthing it with no intention of buying
it or anyone else's for that matter, Apologies to all the genuine P H contributors .

For that reason alone have sat on the fence about entering them on said auction.

They'd still have to have at least be registered bidders though (credit card on file etc). I second what you said, I too mean no offence to genuine PHers, but it is a problem with bitter dreamers.
