The much talked about 'gumball' car has been sold on 911virgin. A lot of people had a lot to say about that car, mileage, use etc, but it was not around long.

i would think anyone who buys a car like that is probably someone who hangs out on forums and not just mr rich bloke who took a fancy to it. So I guess they weighed up a lot of car for the money versus history and went for it.

The new owner seems to have already posted on PH ... mind you the regulars can't work out if it is a wind up or not.

Best PH thread for a long time IMO. That is some infamous car the new owner has bought.

just had a look at the GT2, not being mechanically minded it looks lovely, but as in women, can be very attractive on the outside, BUT. I dont know, it just looked very nice.

911 knew all about the PH forum and said that someone had got a great car for a very good price. Easy to see how one would want it just by looking at it.

It was traded in for the GR3RS they had, which was beautiful - kind of Michelle Pfeiffer quality.

There was no C4S for me to trade in for ( except Dark blue) but I was passing to took a look.
