Slight typo..... But still, I am suprised this is already virtually double what 996 RS is!

I have 2 plates going in soon so will see how they fair.
Same buyer for both plates...David Flux...who I am guessing is the same David Flux of Adrian Flux who appears to have owned/owns some nice cars in the past.

I’m surprised the R8 didn’t sell - looked like a nice car getting good money.

Unsold according to CC but can’t remember where the bidding was yesterday - but certainly thought it should have pushed it over the mark.

Does this work like eBay where your maximum bid is put in but it only goes just above next highest? Or does your actual bid become the highest no matter the gap to the one below?

There's two 'modes'. One will auto-bid for you up to your max. The other (I think, I haven't used it) will just stick in your bid at whatever you put in.

The R8 above got to 37.5k, by the way.

When Ferrari’s are hitting £50k that seems ok. Sad to say.

But already sold for less:

Nice business model - buy on one with less traffic and lower prices, sell on the other for more!
Strange car this one.... we had it in stock about two years ago, absolute belter, one of the best driving 205s I’ve driven. Struggled to get it away though, eventually sold into trade again (for a good profit!). It then sat with that trader for nearly a year I think, eventually selling through The Market at what I thought was a bargain. Looks like the current owner is going to do well out of it!
I’m seriously tempted, but it would wipe out all my savings, I just... can’t... argh

Wasn’t this at 10k something a day or so ago? It looks like it’s dropped back in price. Looks bloody lovely and great value for money. I’m a big fan of 80s cars.

Yes, looked like a bid was cancelled. Sold for £9,990, which, despite the fact it sold a while ago for £8,100 on the market a while ago, still seems very cheap, even including 6% fees. I could justify £10k for one, but not much more. I just hope a dealer with a white background hasn’t bought it and it appears again at 30k. I seriously considered it, but I’ve worked hard at building a 3 month salary buffer, and this would have almost wiped that out.

It’s the unloved and hard to sell 1.6!

As an owner of both the 1.9 and 1.6, on several occasions, I can assure you the 1.6 is better, notably because it doesn’t suffer from the driveline shunt ‘jerkiness’ the 1.9 is prone to.

I though that Steelie might go higher... Perfect spec for me. I'd have bid on it if my 106 project wasn't almost done.

I'm another who had better 1.6s than 1.9s, though the latter did feel more of an animal.

Imagine saying that about 130bhp these days!?

Good buy for £10k-ish - will never lose much (if anything) and a nice profit for the owner.

That Performante ended up one seriously expensive car. 4 owners too.

Bonkers.

It really was a lovely example... I sold one last year (year after the Steel Grey) for 20% more that didn't drive anywhere near as well, although it was a one owner Miami Blue example so that holds some weight in the market. I do wonder whether the more downbeat interior compared to other models holds it back a little, I can't think of any other explanation. Anyway, at 10k someone has a great car, it's what I sold it for in to trade 2 years ago.

100% agreed, but this is objective 'drivers' thinking... Once you get over the straightline performance difference (which is easy to do these days, neither car is particularly quick any more), the 1.6 is definitely the better all round package.

However the market is a little more subjective and buyers in this market behave with considerable emotion... in 1990 everyone wanted the 1.9 and the memory of that still holds strong in some peoples heads, so the 1.9 is more desirable in this context.

Personally I'd take the 1.6 every time and use the considerable spare change for something else...

And apologies, I appreciate we are on the Supercar forum here so I'll say no more about the 205! smile
