Hello Chris

They were asking prices and I agree there can be a big difference which is why I said in the region of …………….

I also adjusted these asking prices downwards by 5k below the asking prices so as not to appear too optimistic.

I have supplied the information that is available for anyone who chooses to look from adverts over the past year or
so with a caveat…..of “ in the region of ” applied to the price as I don’t know the exact sale price perhaps I should have made that clearer.

I was trying to show with the information available that the prices have increased considerably on these cars

In my view its highly unlikely that the cars sold last year were sold at half or even 2/3 rds the advertised price I may be wrong but people can
make their own minds up at what they think these cars sold for

Owners were not advertising these cars at these sorts of figures 3 -4 years ago so somethings changed

I remember showing a potential customer round the factory who asked me why he should consider buying an SP instead of an Interceptor. I suggested that if performance was key to any decision, then he should consider the SP, especially if he might be thinking of an Aston or Ferrrari, for example. 'Know what you mean', he said, 'I already have an Aston and a Ferrari'!
Nice chap, financial consultant who went bust a short time later; seems he was using other people's money to indulge his tastes.

no surprise here.....at 80k it was pitched at a good price to sell based on the figures of the cars over the last year

Hi Jens. You have a second PM on the subject of picking up your Rostyles, which as you know, are being stored outside.

Grateful for an update on your plans.
