Realistic price,can or will they go down anymore,even bigger gap now between this and the Daytona, This will appeal to most Ferrari buyers more so than the Boxer LM and although in my opinion it's sensibly priced it's still some way from what that sold for,If you got the extra money and the LM is not for you this one is the better buy . That's what my sensible head says but my other head still loves the LM

There is another Koenig one on Collecting Cars at the moment with modded seats too. Somehow the red one appealed to me much more but I do wonder what this one will go for.

I prefer the red Koenig Boxer to , it has a all together more aggressive look to it with a low stance and flared out arches ,

There's something not quite right about the styling on the rear of the black Boxer which just doesn't look good ,

dare i say it more kit car where the red car looked more race car, Maybe when lowered it will no doubt be a improvement

but not sure if i could live with the rear arches although could look better in the flesh and if it goes for that sort of money l

could probably live with it, scratchchin As for the Rinspeed 911 yikes

Shouldn't really like this but for some reason i do, but think i would go the whole way of being ostentatious

and have the convertible ,Ideal for that blast down to the South of France if and when we are permitted by

Boris ,Meanwhile a few laps around Bognor Regis would have to suffice, smokin

Crazy to see in the past a Ferrari 360CS and 430Scud sold for the 100k mark!! Yes they were LHD examples, but still thats a lot of car for the money!

Glad it's not just me then, Although Boxers have come down to a more sensible level they still command a high

price for most of us, unless this Koenig is relatively cheap in relation to a standard Boxer i think most will shy away from it.

Rardley's have a beautiful silver BBi for under £200K , very limited market with most Ferrari owners preferring a standard car

or a out and out race car, may do better on the Japanese or Arab market place,

I posted this on the Countach thread (like a numpty) but I don’t believe that’s a Koenig. That’s why it doesn’t look like the other one. I reckon it’s the Emblem kit - https://www.dmark.co.uk/galleries/emblem-sports-ca...

Next door neighbour has one.

Reckons it has halved in value in the last two years.

He doesn't care as he bought it for £25k in the 1990s.

Doesn't look as good with the red bumpers and underbody IMHO. But I still would.

Perhaps I should offer him 100k for it!

Halved in value is a bit of a stretch, but if you could see my generous offer of 105k being passed along Harry, that would be just grand...smile

Think Bells had the car on SOR , shortly after being there it was in the Bonhams Bond Street sale and failed to sale then not long after that

on Collecting Cars and with the price being asked by Bells in mind was surprised it sold for £115K plus commission,

Was expecting it to pop up somewhere in the trade with a £200K+ Price there after.

Either Bells had a huge mark up on it or after them not selling it and then unsuccessful at Bonhams the owner just wanted it gone.

Most Ferrari buyers want a factory standard car but i think this one looks so much more aggressive and should have come out of the factory

looking that good ,

Seeing those photo's of Emblem 's premises in Pimperne takes me back. Always a selection of outrageous Boxers and 308 GTB's

in the showroom, Memory not so good but i think it was Nigel who built my 308 GTB engine to factory Sprint pack spec later

rebuilt by QV after misreading the oil level at Goodwood , Spoke to John and Mary a few times when they retired to Scotland , Happy days
