Macca at £30k and 96k miles what could go wrong? That scares the **** out of me. The Fezza could be a steal but Caveat Emptor to do an Inspection or take Voicey with you!!!!
Great to see the Macca with that many miles, but I wonder if it's one of the ex supercar-club type cars, or maybe one that has spent time as a supercar experience car? Worth doing some searches and YouTubeing to see if that car pops up anywhere doing amazing burnouts outside a supermarket somewhere.

Good call, mate once looked at a Fezza that was from one of those driving club things and the list of issues, bumps, scratches went on and on
It's a lot of miles for an 7-year old supercar.

PS - I just noticed, these three are direct from the finance company. Repossessions?

Probably about right at the moment.
A good one is £50k, the best £70k. JK’s one broke a record at the NEC. He’d only had it a year so it’s not a celebrity special car, but he turned a healthy profit.
Surely not? I went past it again on the way into the office this afternoon, it needs a complete rub down (probably rust repair) and respray.
With the paint work looking how it did, god knows how badly the rest of the car has been treated. Could be an absolute money pit!

I wouldn't give 10 grand for it.

BMWs have been the new Porsche for a while now. Witness £100k for an M635 CSI a while ago - though most are less than half that. The 8 Series has taken a long time to follow the others but the CSI is not a normal 8 Series. Can’t remember what steering rack they had, I know Alpina junked the standard one for their conversions.

A repo supercar. If the ‘owner’ couldn’t afford the monthly bill the chances of affording to upkeep it are slim.
I hear there are Gallardos galore with hard unloved lives.

It’s why I haven’t bitten the bullet on a GS on finance.
That and my wife will be using me as patio underlay if she finds out.

Those estimates have been set to get tongues wagging surely. £30k for the Mclaren? It will go for more. Cheapest on AT is currently £75k. The low estimates on the other two are less eye-catching.

Whilst a lot of cars going through auction at the moment are barely making low estimate there is such a spread on these that I think they will be going for more and at high estimate I don't think the Ferrari represents sufficient value given the lack of opportunity to do a proper PPI beforehand.

The Nissan is probably guided fairly for the mileage and who knows someone might get a bargain. Only 6 months down the line (or 6 miles down the road) will you really know.

Its a Steering Box in the 8 series not a Rack just for info.

My father had a 330 GT in 1973 much to my mothers displeasure along with his Heather Pink Jaguar XJ6.
My childhood was fun and got me addicted to cars for sure.

That's a lovely looking 330 Voicey and good value for a 60's Ferrari. Didn't many of them get broken up to make replicas of the more exotic models?

I wonder if the 599 will drop to c £50k for a nice one like the 550 did? Maybe the 550 will return to pre boom prices. I hope so!
