That's brilliant. I'd love to meet a lass in a bar and admit to owning a Longchap.

I always liked these (and didn't Maserati do something very similar?) but you couldn't use that due to the mileage.

60 large for something that looks like it's made of lego and powered by an asthmatic pig iron V8?

Where do I sign?

Wow. Seriously, that has to be one of the coolest cars I've ever seen for sale. It could have 100,000 miles on it and still be a bargain at that price. I can't imagine we'll see another for sale too soon given that Ferrari made more Enzos  and Bugatti more Veyrons.

Never saw the appeal the first time around, reminds me of a Bristol. But Shitter.

I like the shape.  The interior, scrunchy leather and wing graphics less so.

Looking at wikipedia, these were on sale for 17 years and they sold 400 of them. Can't think why?

One sold at Brooklands auction last year for 19 grand, so the 40K mark up this one has for being low mileage is rather steep!

Having done more googling, it appears the red one was previously for sale at another poncey dealer for 30K for 6 months or more and they couldn't shift it.

Its one of those cars like a Biturbo that should be a punt at 10k and only then if you want to throw good money away.

I really like them but no way would I own one. Bit like a Maser

That's all part of the slighly naff and yet cool nature of the beast surely? Ruched leather - very, very 70's. But 60k is comical really.

There will be boxy 80's rocket in my fantasy garage, and until now its been filled with Integrale/Quattro/Maserati. I've never seen one of these before but it's now in the running,  I even like the ruched leather nicked from the local crematorium.
Roadrunner

Vulgar. I know where my 60K would go..

Plus an extra 10K to spend on an old XJS or something.

Am I looking at the same car? That is horrible, especially the headlights that totally fail to fit the grille, and the stuck-on wheelarches, especially the front one.

I don't think anyone sees anything different, or disagrees with your observations, but 'horrible' is subjective!
