Just seems a low price considering the extent of the work carried outand quoted prices on other coupes on the market.

“Priced to sell” maybe?...or just sensibly priced?

Could be right Phil. Never thought of it like that

As well as the above, which may be true, it's worth considering that many of the Coupes on the market with high-end prices have been straight sixes, which I think lifts them into a different bracket on rarity/age?

Hello,

Yes - it's time to move it on to someone who will enjoy it as much as I have over the years and use it.

It looks such a lovely car, Andrew. However, I have to ask: has the written part of the advert been produced by QRG themselves? I'm a terrible pedant, I know, but it really detracts from the quality of the advert and is not worthy of the beautiful vehicle it describes. There is not a single correct sentence in there. Even from the sub-heading, it's a turn-off (at least for people like me) - VERY GOOD CONDITION THROUGH OUT,KNOWN CAR WITH IN RSSOC.

I'm only being critical as it is such an easy fix. Years and years of dedication have gone into the car; five minutes have gone into the advert. I have no doubt the car will sell quickly at that very reasonable price, but it'd be nice to see an impressive car given a suitably impressive write-up.

Best of luck with the sale, Andrew.

Tom

I wouldn’t worry about the quality of the ad,although it could be improved.It’s not as if there are loads of other top quality Coupes for sale.
The ad as is will grab the attention of anyone who wants one and on inspection the car will sell itself.
Personally I prefer Car and Classic to sell the better quality cars,but something as unique as this,at what appears to be a competitive price,should sell easily enough.

In the words of a certain Lager advert.... "Probably, one of the best V6 coupe's out there".
Having known the car (and judged it many times in the RSSOC Concours!) for many years this is a fab car that is just crying out to be bought by someone looking for a sorted, high quality coupe. Sad to see you selling this Andrew but hey, if you're not using it, it will only suffer :(
Good luck with the sale...
Cheers
