    I know of a P1 that just sold privately in the US for $950k.

    WOW!

    That is cheap and bloody nice spec too!

    La Fa's, 918's, SLR's and GT2's have all take a big hit in the US lately and with winter upon us, the buying is only going to get better.

    Once all of the tin cup millionaires that bought high end cars as investments run for the hills, then the market with be open slather!


    Que in Scott for doomsday the Market is dead tune.....

    I don't need to say anything, just have a look at all the "No Sales" in the results of any major auction you care to think of, then compare sale prices today Vs a few years back.
    As SSO stated earlier, the speculators left the scene long ago and buyers are aware that these "limited production special models" that get released every 5 minutes are neither limited nor indeed that special.
    As always though, the best of the best will always sell.

    The fact that you made the call as to what was going to happen was never incorrect.

    I just think that you called it a little early.

    Now obviously your original forecast is alive and well!

    True, picking a coming trend is often not that difficult; but picking the exact turning point is mostly down to luck.

    Carrera GT's seemed to have bucked the trend.

    I don't follow them; but if so I'm not sure why. Plenty of them made compared to their contemporaries and they had a fearsome reputation for biting the hand that feeds them.

    They seem to have. Prices have been pretty steady on CGTs for a few years now.

    A good time to buy. CGT is criminally undervalued to me.

    Yep, none of the SLR Stirling Moss' are even driven. Really a pointless type of car, they'd be better off if they offered a windshield option.

    The Elva has a windscreen option.

    I was very excited about the shoebox that pops up in front of the driver to redivert air... then he said you still get hit in the head with rocks ... fair enough then
