Decent spec/price on autotrader

Post by Elementad » Tue Apr 16, 2019 5:19 pm

Decent saving from new for someone.
Trawling autotrader and saw this: https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified ... obcid=soc4

How are they able to get hold of a car (presumably from jag) with that mileage on?

Yes but it is 2016. So 3 years old. Some folk buy these cars & just do not use them.

That car is almost identical to mine - same year, also a '66' plate, exact same spec - panoramic roof, same alloys, black pack, interior extras all the same. The only difference between my car and that car is the fixed spoiler which it has (and I didn't want). I got my car almost a year ago today with only 4000 miles on the clock for almost the exact same price...

But is it a model year 16 or 17?
If it’s a model year 16 I would say it’s a bit expensive.

Um.... doesn't make sense to me.

The company selling the car, according to HMRC closed in July last year with £2 left in the bank. The signature was from a previous leasing company which is now active again with a description of "Euro Imports specialising in the import/export of quality cars and spare parts to/from UK/EU and Globally".

They had a website with matching postcode to the Autotrader one, just one car for sale, a white Porsche Cayenne GTS but on Autotrader there are 4 other cars all with reg plates showing apart from the F-Type. The pictures also show a red 911, a Panama, a Golf R behind a van etc.

The sills are scuffed so someone has been in and out of the car. Could be an import/export with a new odometer which we have seen before on recovered euro cars.

Or could be a very cherished and loved car (desperate for an oil change) and a new owner.

Is it really that cheap. I have recently bought a 2017 V8 R AWD Cabriolet with a lot of toys. New spec circa £102,000 to £104,000 17500 miles & pristine condition. £52,000 private.

It’s got 230 odd miles on. It’s little more than delivery mileage. Yes, if genuine I would say that is decent value. It’s essentially unused with no wear/tear on seats, tyres, engine, anything. Someone buying that I would get it serviced at Jag, get the inspection done, get the warranty on it and enjoy it.

Buying a car with even just 10k on clock - when you put it in perspective - has done equivalent to John o groats to lands end over 11 times. 230 odd miles is brand new mechanically - if genuine.
