Yeah.  This one has been there a long time.  Lovely but... IMHO i think a 380 in this market with that many miles is a mid-£50s car.

Is 10000 miles a lot then. Mid 50 seems harsh

Bugger to keep looking clean. I vowed never again to have a black car after having a black car...

No. I don’t think 10k miles is a lot on its own but I suspect it is way above average for an exige which is for the great majority a toy and not a daily driver. I know of 2 380s that sold for £5-10k less than that one. One had 1500 miles the other had 2k miles. I know a third with approx 7k miles that sold for mid-high 50s. Ooh just thought of a 4th that sold for mid-50s with around 5-6k miles. To be fair I am not suggesting you buy on miles, just suggesting that higher miles should lead to a lower price.

I do think the price is, like the car, a bit racy. For only a couple of grand more I've seen a 410, with less miles for sale, and so......

I went to see to see the black one at Romans back in late Feb. Amazing spec with gold accents and harnesses - probably they’re right in saying it’s the highest spec in the market right now, though £65k is still too much in my opinion for a 10k car. Also they were pretty firm on the ask at the time, probably they could be more willing to negotiate now given the situation.. lastly they valued my 220 Cup really little so no deal for me.

...and isn’t it funny how Romans has a statement on their autotrader adverts saying that autotrader valuations are low because they don’t take into account options etc. Ergo, we are more expensive than the market norm 🤣🤣

All very well to ask top money but to offer bottom money on the part ex is typical of this type of trader

What’s going to happen to 430 Cup prices after summer do we think?

There are now 6 for sale I’ve just noticed. Some have been for on the market a long time. I remember last year B&C had to reduce their yellow one to below £80k to move it on - i would imagine some adjustments to current expectations at some point ( unless folk just like having adverts live ).

Their well known liquid-yellow ?! Or another one ?
Was it new, or used ? Millage ?

Such a price makes me wonder whether or not it's a good idea to order a brand new Cup 430.
Especially these "days"...
Without talking about the 20k€ CO2 tax we have to pay for it here in France.
Of course we never know how their price will fluctuate in the coming months / years.
We could also think in terms of pleasure only, taking the opportunity to configure the car exactly like we want, and voila.
Which is something "impossible" with the second hand market.
Not so easy decision 🙂

It was their well known one which was why they had to drop the price significantly.

Presumably just in a few YouTube videos. That’s what I’ve seen anyway. Not being hammered I might add. Though to be honest it’s what the car is designed to do so don’t know why reduced any more than any other. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Yep a few tests & reviews, and exposed at different events.
I also certainly focused on it as I was looking for Liquid Yellow Cup 430 photos / videos, and this one popped-up at several places 🙂
In addition to the priced paint, this B&C unit had a few options, such as the rollcage A-frame, and exterior fire extinguisher + engine isolator, which all have a cost...

Below £80k was then really interesting...

Current ones at mid-eighties are due a correction to sell surely??

You could spec your own brand new for £90k. 
 

Clearly some folk don’t really want to sell them!

list price from £100,600 according to web

For a 430, are you sure? if so that's bombed massively in the last 12 weeks... :(

no, an unregistered dealer one would be £95k otr and if you spec your own its £100-105k depending on options but if you go to lotus exclusive that rises quickly.

Dealers can't buy in any more 430s, only 410/350s, so once the few left go then you'd have to order from the factory.

I don’t want to make a new thread for this, and it’s not for sale, just trying to track down the owner...but does anyone know this purple 380? Think the current reg is EV11CUP....
