If we said 2010 cars so there’s no variables with variators, and 40k miles. Both cars having recently had brakes all round and the MC having had a clutch, the MC would be about £28k retail, the auto around £25k.
Whichever one of those you go for that is great value - brilliant cars. Mine is a 2011 61 plate GTS auto on 55k so would that retail about the same as newer but higher miles? Not asking about trade just interested in the retail market.

Around the same. Classic colour combo, properly looked after and one owner are big positives. 55k miles is the negative as you’re aware.

Cheers. If it wasn't so good then I wouldn't have used it - catch 22! I can see why you are doing so well Dicky as there is still little to touch them for an affordable feelgood, increasingly summer/weekend car purchase. I was lockdown looking at the V8 M6 coupe which is great value and stonking performance but rear seat space is a bit tight.

The problem up here in Scotland is servicing - we have two main agents but with MP Supercars gone no real alternative.

I believe we sell more Granturismo Sports than any other dealership in the country so am in a decent position to comment. I am aware that lots of people on here prefer the F1 Gearbox, MC Shift. This is definitely not the case for the wider market on Granturismo Sports. The MC Autoshift gearbox is fitted to around 90% of the U.K. 2013MY onwards cars. This shows that when new, the auto was vastly more popular, and second hand, this is also the case. This is because most buyers use the car either as a daily/frequent use car, they want the ease of use that the auto brings, and they avoid clutch replacement costs or gearbox issues. I believe there to be a small reduction of £2-3k for an MC as oppose to an auto at present. This may change as the cars grow older and become second or third vehicles in the household as an MC provides a more involved ‘occasional’ drive. They are also far fewer in number, a reported 43 U.K. examples so that may help their price to gain parity or even a premium over the auto.
@JonW the MC Shift gearbox was discontinued at 2018MY.
Is this 43 mc shift f1 across all years?

Is this a U.K. car?
Hi Richard, it's at Emirates. Sharing some photos as well and I think the color combo is not very ususal. Is the red tone the "Rosso Trionfale Metallic". The yellow suspension warning seems to be a sign of a trouble with skyhook? Car is in another city and I am evaluating if I should bother to go and see the car.

You read it wrong. He was referring to GranTurismo Sport MC-Shift (Not Granturismo S MC-Shift) -
Here you go...

Around 1,300 Granturismo in the UK total. Pretty rare by most standards.

Compared to over 5,000 Vantages.

Yes there is. David Philip in Edinburgh and the legendary Stewart Roden in West Lothian can both do a good job and both are better than MP every were IMHO.

Cheers is David Phillips the guy that Kenny Dunn uses for servicing? I always thought Stewart Roden was for more interesting cars than mine but I will take a peek.
