And apologies, I appreciate we are on the Supercar forum here so I'll say no more about the 205! smile
Don't apologise, if someone is on the supercar forum and doesn't know/appreciate/love a 205 GTI they're probably too young to be here! (UK/European bias notwithstanding of course!)

Went for £150,500 (+ £6k = £156,500) in the end - https://collectingcars.com/for-sale/2017-lamborghi...

Looks more appealing than the black one IMHO.

Am I the only one thinking that many of these cars have actually gone for very strong money. I think people are already expecting to get a bargain with the world currently on pause, are finding something on here with time on their hands and then getting carried away. Many people seem to have suggested elsewhere that the true economic effect of COVID-19 wont realise itself until after government furloughs end, lockdowns end etc which is 3-4 months from now. So really, with a few exceptions (I pointed out the 512BB on a separate thread), the results on CC arent too different from what you would have bought the same cars for 2/3/4 months ago, which means really with lockdown being in place this website could currently (and somewhat ironically) be a "sellers market" to get something gone for reasonable money before things hit the fan in a few months time

Yes l agree so many people with time on their hands has turned what looked like a disaster for car sales into a bonanza for sellers getting really strong money

£63k for a LHD 599?

No idea if that’s good but looks good on the face of it to me!

Spot on. The 599 ended at £63k. Add buyers fee so £69k. Not been serviced in three years so at minimum £5000 spend, quite possibly nearer £10k. There are RHD cars just above £80k, I know a RHD 30k miler just sold for over £80k last week.

I quite agree and posted something similar a week or two back. Once you do the maths the prices seen are more or less trade and not some huge discount. In my mind the pain is yet to come and the more obvious signals are only trickling out in the news such as unemployment numbers, national debt and so on. There is a lot of pain coming.

Not a huge difference but it's 6% and not £6k, which is the cap I.e. over £100k, in buyers fees.

M4 sold on there tonight for £24k + fees, so £25.5k in real money; similar cars listed at dealers for late 20s, can't imagine if you went into a few of them with £25-26k in your hands that you'd walk out without a deal - and a warranty.

Im an art dealer and seeing the same in my field. Prices are strong and in some cases stronger than pre lockdown at (internet) auction. Why? As stated above, a lot of (wealthy) people with too much time on their hands and fewer ways to spend their money. Amazing to see but seems the only logical reason.

The Lambo achieved an excellent result and further confirmation that the trapdoor has not yet opened in the Top car market.

Indeed. I’ve been keeping my eye on M4s and there are loads and loads well under £30k on the BMW site.

Cheapest is just under £25k but it’s a 2014 so a bit older.

But I’d pay a couple more grand for a main dealer warranty.

Thought about this some more and given I already take a risk by usually buying cars unseen and without an inspection, I would definitely pay a few k (depending on price, say 5k) more for buying from a dealer which at least affords me some minimum protection.

Agree with the above, prices probably driven by people sitting at home bored and looking forward to enjoying the summer - so a new toy can never be a mistake, esp as the risk of a premature death is probably at the forefront of their minds ‘ at least more present than it was 4 months ago

I'm hearing quite a bit more "you can't take it with you and the kids won't starve" from my 'over 60' mates who are looking at some purchases more on impulse than necessity.

People aren't going out spending so many have a bit more money, more time to browse the web, and more beer whilst doing it. Internet shoppping is the only way of getting things like this, so online demand has gone up and dealers are closed so their demand is down. Even in a low(ish) cost market my niece makes custom clothes to sell online and at festvals. She has made £6k more profit since lockdown than she did the same period last year - all online as that is her only route to market.

I think there is a storm coming, but Aunty Em doesn't need to call the family in yet.

Yup....we won’t really see the economic reality until the autumn when the government support schemes are markedly scaled back. Although industries directly impacted it’ll be much quicker. :Hertz filed for bankruptcy last night
