Anyone know this car

Wow that's a special car for not a lot of money in my opinion.
Would be worth checking the history to see what's been done at service and if it passes an inspection by a specialist could be a nice buy.

Nice looking cars these... if only the boot was not so small... not big enough for a road trip longer than few days, unless its just Tshirts and pants.

Good price but not seen one for sale with that mileage previously. Is that an issue? Not if maintained. If.

Recall rugby training in the snow - mostly likely the school would now be closed. I wonder where the obesity epidemic originates.

You could use the back seats Pete as there are only two of you. Treat it as a two seater. Loads of room then for you.

Not so good if you don't want your cases lifted at the first roadside pause by the local youths (seen it done).
And I don't fancy cases hitting the back of me/seat in the event of a sudden stop.

173 litres, that's ridiculous! If it was like an old Merc CLK where the roof folds into the boot but when it's up that space can be utilised then you could drive to lets say Italy with the boot packed and roof up. Once you arrive unpack and cruise around with the roof down - compromised but much more practical...

MC Strad version of the GC would be a good investment

If I had 40k and wanted one of these that is the one to go and see and now Dicky gas put his seal of approval on it then it's a no brainier.... Lovely colour combination and a Sport....Stunning.

But it’s blue ☹. Seriously though is 60k an issue on these cars? Assuming well maintained? Running a 140k Audi S4 now and it purrs like brand new.

60k is not an issue on any car. The original car you are looking at is the cheapest I've seen and with an inspection it could be a great buy. 60k is not high miles.....Just there is this hang up with these Type cars that you should only do half a mile a year. They are built to be driven and all the better for it...Go for it.

Totally agreed 60,000 is nothing and I have had 2 Maseratis that I took over the 100,000 mark.
Like anything servicing them properly is the key.
