@padders81
As your first post you have made it pretty obvious you are either the owner or connected to the owner/rm Sotheby's.
Good luck with the sale.

They are the corsa equivalent of max power styling, or from the pages of kit car horrors. What amazes me is that someone managed to drive almost 600 miles per year in the white one. Must have been at night. Obviously was not a car that they enjoyed being seen out in. Amazes me Gemballa stay in business, with the abortions they turn out.

Even the username lacks any subtlety Hand

Urban dictionary: "Bid Padder: Using eBay or any other similar website, is when i person puts a item up for auction and want to get the highest possible price so uses a friend to place bids and up the overall sale price."

Not my car but wished it was.

I had a poster of an Avalanche in the 80's so just remember how extravagant they are and never Seen one for sale.

Just thought they will be the main feature in the auction.

I did not even mention the name of the auctioneers so definately not trying to publicize the event.

'Main feature of the auction' ! Floor Floor Floor
Good try! Step away from the spade....

@timm996 agree with every word

I personally am amazed that this particular house is letting these pollute the line up of cars but clearly any material goes at the moment.

Hope for your sake you have the last laugh if they sell to someone with equally good taste.

Gemballas were always a bit eccentric probably bought by the likes of the Sultan of Brunei and the odd dictator or two!

Strangely enough i have a Spark model of one...

Hearing bids for both cars fizzled at £110k and both lots were passed. Should have snapped their arms off at £110k those we're astoundingly high bids for those cars, means with buyer premium someone was willing to pay £125k for each one!

I couldn't believe they reached that sort of money. I watched the auction online. I remember Evo did a test on a Gemballa 911 Turbo conversion and their conclusion was that they had ruined it. Impossible to drive on the road and slower on the track than the original Turbo and double the money??.
