A 600LT with only 1000miles has just ended at £122,500. This seems quite a good price to me. Is this the current market price for these cars?

Add another £6K ontop for CC commission and it’s not far off what you can buy direct from a McLaren main dealership. At least if bought from a dealership there is a minimum 1 year warranty (possibly more if negotiable) and the all important statutory cover of the CRA2015 in the event of car being faulty and rejection invoked.

Doesn’t sound like a great deal, but maybe couple of grand saved. Not sure if I would chance buying high price car privately without the cover of CRA2015. Would need to be a big saving to justify.

Don’t get it, that’s just 6k under the full asking price of the 68 plate, 650 mile car at the McLaren main dealer in London.

That gap would be negligible if you factor in a bit of negotiation and main dealer back up + full years warranty.

Would the buyer get £3k or £4K for the 2nd set of wheels and tyres ?

Too close to main dealer pricing/deal to consider buying this off a private seller. Needs to be a least a further £10k cheaper

I see Edward Lovett owner of Collecting Cars has waded into a debate on Facebook about his company. Looks like he is getting a good beating as many disgruntled folks posting how bad CC are

I agree with MAC, I would go for that one at Mac London for an extra few K and no question marks around adding a warranty.

Interesting and eye opening reading, and to think we thought Gerald Ratner had terrible business acumen.

Some folks are being censored by Collecting Cars and having their posts removed. All seems very extreme unless you don’t want the truth to come out

Lovett has now removed all his posts , if that does not show an admission of guilt I don’t know what does

He just made an absolute fool of himself in front of his customers, and couldn’t deny that the Top Gear guy is part of the company. He prattled on how he was just a friend helping him out.

Frankly laughable state of affairs.

I notice that a couple of your machines are for sale on CC? I would love to have the Alfa as my track toy, what a great looking car. I assume it would be road legal in the Uk?

The crux of it was quite a few folks were very critical of the Collecting Cars Buyers Terms.

This issue and also sellers being coerced into reducing their reserve caused some negative fuss for CC.

Edward Lovett intervened lost the argument and has now removed his response along with some negative comments on FB

Bizarre !!

Moderator edit: cut out the potentially defamatory comments please

I had the opposite experience, they sold my car, pocketed the 6% fee and then it transpired that the buyer was from the other side of world and didn’t want to proceed. I was bound by agreement to sell, was told it was sold, bought a replacement, but ended up with no sale.
