Clearly is, mustang he purchased Is now for sale at Targa Florio.

Question is whether the owner of a motor dealers could / should be selling their ‘personal’ cars as private sales via CC. I was a bit aghast that I’d bid on a car that he was selling that said trade, which suddenly got changed to private without notification or a reset of the auction / live bids.
Seems Zippy is about to buy a cheap Gallardo

Seems incredible they are 17 years old now. It looks good and a manual.

The Superfast seems to be setting new residual lows...I don’t remember the F12 in its time suffering like this.

In a few months time there will be plenty of examples at this price.

Just out of interest I messaged TF a couple of evenings ago, and asked them if zippy was buying for them. They didn't deny it, but asked for my phone number, so we could discuss it. I said I didn't want a discussion, just an answer, and they then asked for my email address so they could email me their reply.

I gave them an email address, but nothing arrived. A couple of reminders were ignored.

Of course there's no reason why they should even have responded at all to my impertinent question, but the way they did convinces me that zippy and TF are indeed one and the same.

I’d wager that Zippy is in fact the owner of TF.....

It ended at £208K+£6K fees = £214K which is a good price for an average spec Oct 18 Reg 812. It has only 10mths warranty left and missed its first service. I think the seller will be pretty satisfied despite losing £118K in just over two years, Having missed a service, i doubt very much it would qualify for Ferrari Official used car programme which is extremely strict with regards history.

Yes - it’s this finer detail that people may not pick up on. Just like that grey track McLaren 12C last week which hadn’t seen a main dealer service centre for 3 years, but the vendor claims you could put a McLaren warranty on it....yeah right

Why is it such a source of fascination? Trade buyers buy from auctions up and down the country way more than private buyers. I really don't understand why its got peoples knickers in a twist? There will be more than zippy bidding although he does look very active on there. There is no doubt that it is Targa Florio but why is it even worth posting about?

That's not true. It had been listed by Maranello's as Ferrari Approved up to the end of November.

I traded my 599 back to Ferrari in September. It had missed three services whilst in a collection and it was sold on as Approved within the last month.

Agree. I looked at this car around 18 months ago. It was only £59K but didn't sell. At least it's now found a home / trader.

I don't think it's too bad a price either. Think you need to be willing to take a bath if you order a car in that kind of spec.
