I reckon they'd put a black one on if you were willing to stump up £84k Grin

How much are decent RS's making these days ..
If I had £80k to spend on a car , I'd just add 'a few more' quid and get one of em instead!!

25k less for a turbo on around 30k miles. There's a lot of nice toys you could pick up for 25k. Or some excellent strippers and a really big bag of coke to enjoy with your yellow 30k miles turbo 430.

Bloddy heel. I am gobsmacked. I don't think that's worth it, but if someone buys it.......then it is. Simple.

Can only be a collector at that money surely????

It's been on sale for months can remember how many exactly but it can't be far off a year I would have thought.

Looks like a top car for extremely top money. In a way it is nice to see these cars advertised for so much money.

Good to see that the wheel centre caps are pointing in the right direction, i.e at the valve.

It's a shame that they have the hide colour stated as classic grey and not marble grey, as it appears to be.

I reckon the 993 Turbo has finally arrived at that place called 'special'. It joins the 993GT2, 993RS, and all of the other older usual suspects.

Its uphill from here gents. If you want one, I would be VERY quick.

MTR

Caveat - I could be horribly wrong!

Wow, that's one hell of a premium for low mileage. In fact some £40k premium for 30k miles when compared to my arctic silver X50 bought a year ago. Surprised

Its funny how we all keep banging the drum on 'buy on condition NOT mileage'.

Does anyone listen? Do they *****!

I actually believe that most people buy low mileage for the cache/brag factor, not necessarily the condition factor.

MTR

That is ridiculous.

And if I had the money, I would be equally ridiculous and buy it.

Awesome car at an awesome price - I do feel that while it appears to be in concours condition and benefits greatly from its low mileage status, I have two points to make:

1. I would almost certainly replace the steering wheel back to factory specification.
2. I personally think that Arctic Silver with Classic Grey leather is not the strongest of colour combinations.

If I was in the market for a Turbo I would have rather side stepped this car, saved upwards of £30K and purchased the Silver/Chestnut JZM car which sold recently - that was very special in my eyes.
