More Comedy Pricing

Big Blue

Indeed.

2 noughts too many.
Twelfth Monkey

Possibly three.

I noticed another completely original one being advertised for just 4000. That one must be bloody special to warrant an extra 85000 in value!

Seems the price has dropped since your post, if my maths is correct.

My favourite bit, 82500 Or near offer
Frank Bullitt

I can see it at 8,250, but that must be an error.

Agreed. 8k for an immaculate one would interest an enthusiast.
PhilD

Erm, we all know it's a typo right?!
TreVoR

Despite what I may write on here, I am not that dim.  

The very thought of someone asking that much for a car that wasn't that great when it came out made me smile.

That is lovely.
Humphrey The Pug

Sorry; is that eighty two thousand, five hundred pounds?

There must be a missing decimal point somewhere.

It's nice but the original one (X1/9, not the advert) is so much better with it 3ish spoke alloys and pointy bumpers.
Giant

Aren't the bumpers and wheels the same?
simonp

I thought that. Only difference I can see is the colour.
Martin

I think they are all priced at comedy levels!

They were an ugly, wedgy lump of turd when they were current. Anyone willing to pay 8 large for one now is a proper throwing-bacon-at-parked-cars-whilst-dressed-as-Batman-mental.

I have never been a fan of these. Whenever I saw one as a kid in the 80s, they were usually rotten despite being fairly new.

Even the so-called Italian "masters" can have a day off.

Hyundai Matrix, anyone?

I disagree, when it came out in 1972 it was a revelation, Bertone designed and with lovely weight balance and handling it looked like something from the future.

It was just a  pity they never sorted out the rust proofing out.

Daewoo Tacuma, Nissan Tino and Ford Fusion all come immediately to mind, I'm sure there are more
