All ready for the show tomorrow. Probably the cleanest it's ever been. Hard work though! and just for you @Andyww

Long time no update so thought I should keep this thread going. Just been serviced and MOT'd by Cos as Sportomotive just outside Bournemouth. Only one stamp left to finish off the original servic

Interesting to go back and ready the early comment when dry sump #1108 was for sale back in 2013 we all thought 28,500 pounds was a lot for this car, Paul Matty now asking 75,000 pounds obviously. 

 

Essex 007 was for sale in Australia at the same time for 25,000 pounds equivalent..

I think you could say everything has gone up by 3-4 times since the last discussion 7 years ago if you consider project cars to mint dry sumps.. Essex cars even more.

what are your thoughts on the asking price ?  

It's worth whatever you or someone else is prepared to pay. Not trying to be obtuse here but it is a rare, special car, in outstanding condition, with great provenance. It's difficult to compare cars like these and they will be bought more with "heart" than "head" I would hope.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

not on its original wheels although the conversion was probably very expensive

Not wearing its original decals either....the front one needs removed, replaced and realigned. Nice car though😎

@Andywwirs the intrigue and the rarity of the dry sump and the fact there are probably only a dozen on the road. Comps, roof stereo and dry sump from factory is incredibly desireable and would attract a higher price than a wet sump i believe. I know this car had BBS from factory but the condition can’t be faulted.
There are many cars in history the from the outside that look the same but inside there is something special hidden that command a higher price. 308 GTB dry sump cars are one example. 246 Dinos with chairs and flares and so on.
