I don’t think it’s a problem Simon saying how much he sold a car for. It’s not as though he’s breaking Doctor-Patient confidentiality.

It’s only a car sale, and I’m sure the buyer’s wife doesn’t even read Pistonheads.
Thanks. I added this information as a point of interest on the topic as it’s relevant info and does not breach any confidentiality. Hornbaek just tries to throw me to the lions at every opportunity, it’s old news.

His/her wife/husband might not, but if they ever try to sell it, everyone on an Aston forum does.

I found it a little strange to see it quoted, especially if sold without being marketed. Also not sure such a special edition gives much guidance on the general market.

Is that really an issue? 99% of us buy cars with publically advertised prices, I’ve never stopped to think “ah now someone can guess how much I paid for it” or worried that it might impact resale

Definitely agree though that the price of a very limited special (and they were special) like the Spitfire probably isn’t hugely relevant here as my sense.is the OP is after a “non-special” (if that can be said about an Aston Martin) V12VSM

Not a big issue, but this is the 1% that bought a distinctive car not publicly advertised.

I spoke to members on here about what paid for my roadster and what discounts were achievable, but it would be very strange if he put that number up on here.

I don’t know the ins and out of this particular situation, perhaps there are lots of examples on the forum of the person selling the car saying what they sold it for, but I don’t recall any, so as I said, I found it a little odd to read on here.

Dear Simon,

That had not occurred to me but if you had that feeling I do apologise as it was absolutely not meant to be personal. In collector circles it is quite customary not to reveal the price anyone paid for a vehicle ( or indeed anything else of collectible value ) as it is not really relevant. One off pieces such as the Spitfire editions of the V12V are worth whatever a buyer wants to pay for it. As there are no or few comparables, the price is irrelevant. So “ no throwing to the lions “ and we move on.

They do indeed.

It's white which doesn't do it for me and they seem to be VERY busy as they haven't responded to my internet enquiry on the car.

He probably is, and if a company gives it as an option to contact them, they should probably reply.

Agree , I’d rather have a chat over the phone about a car personally, but however if he wants to email them then mention on a internet motoring forum that they haven’t replied to his email enquiry it suggests to me that he might not be a serious buyer.

I could be wrong of course...
