On my first ever trip to the Nurburgring, on the eve of my first ever trackday there, the driver showed my his in-car footage of this crash on his 'phone during dinner. Surprised

It was probably a 'good thing' for me to see it, but it did nothing to steady my nerves!

Not necessarily - my big crash there was only recorded by my own onboard and to my knowledge none of my 4 non-contact spins ever made YouTube either. If I could go there regularly for a decade without ending up on a compilation then I am sure that you can too. Paper Bag

How did she shift that?!

Notice that it now has the incredibly rare optioned electric club sport bucket seats...

Still no indication of damage though...

Those seats explain the price hike then. Thank god for that, i thought it may have been some unscrupulous seller trying to steal money off people.

Perhaps waited until the 'net noise died down and quietly moved it on to someone in the trade who hadn't done due diligence on its past? From the earlier days of this thread it is apparent that the dealer advertising it this time may have been innocently oblivious of its history when pricing it?

Average price of a car in that dealers stock is about £5-10k - seems a strange place to be marketing a GT3! Has anyone warned the dealer?! Maybe they don't care.
I am convinced someone sent me pics of this sitting in Brighton somewhere for weeks - about 18 months ago - well it was definitely a red 996 GT3 - maybe before the work was done - will try and dig them out.
