I've seen this a few times up for sale over the past year or so. It's a very marmite colour, however it does look good with the Gransport seats but i bet that interior colour would be a nightmare to keep clean.

I did actually take a look and drive of that car when Nareman had it. I looked at a couple but one had a really suspicious history and the other one put me off because it had some strange aftermarket back-box from France that droned when cruising at 2.4k revs. I think he was asking for nearly £30k at the time.

I like the look of it, and in person, in the sunshine, it's lovely.

Very bright sunshine helps greatly - but too Barbie-esque for my taste.
At the other end of the scale this was for sale at Brightwells yesterday:

21K miles, beige interior with new clutch & flywheel a couple of k ago.
Went for £18,500 + 12%. Hopefully the bargain it looks for someone.

The light blue one has been on and off sale for over a year. Last place was near Manchester but suspect it is moving around the trade.

Dark blue one will be with a dealer soon with a big mark up I fear.

Had it been blue it would've been bought but I'm not looking for a black Spyder. The black/beige does work nicely though. I went to 18K thinking I'd enjoy it for the summer or until the car / colour combo I "really" want is found. Most bidders dropped out around 16K - but I think you're right there's a juicy markup for someone.

Hi Navcorr
This car has turned up at 1st Choice Cars in Farringdon, Oxon but no price yet.

Good spot Mark! They paid just shy of £21K without, presumably, an opportunity to inspect. The MOT history looked good mind you. Was tempting to go higher but black cars are not my baguette - will be interesting to see what they ask for.

That looks a bargain, we are getting to Spider silly season when everyone raises the prices as the sun shines

I hope they're right about the history they state. I'm just a bit surprised it's in that good a condition having been bought at auction. In fact, it looks like it's missing a service or few.
Surely such a car, known within the Maserati Club and wanted on their stand at a show would have reached better money than it did at auction, even in private sale.
But yes, seems a fair price if the dealer paid just over 20k Inc fees.
I'll see if i can get a look in a week or so and report back.

This is very similar to a Spyder that a friend of a friend had last year or the year before. Black with circa 21k, he bought and sold it within 6 months I will try to find out why.
