I like red and beige but it needs black carpets.
I wonder what the story is with this one ?

BRDC badge and Dick Lovett number plates, MOT every year and what looks like FSH with Lovett also is a good start but 3 former keepers is strange

I'd agree with that needs black carpets. Pretty similar to mine inside apart from carpets as mine are black and look much better IMHO.
I'm not normally a fan of red cars but it looks OK I think on this with the beige interior.
Never been a fan of the classico look or alloys though. Much prefer the facelift look for me.

Mine is only 1 former keeper. Maserati sold it new to the first guy who bought it. Be he sold it back to the dealers, and then bought it back again because he missed it so much and realized his mistake. And then sold it back to the dealers again. And then I bought it. So I think it counts as 5. Even though only the dealers snd 1 guy bought it. A few times. At least the depreciation was done when I got the car.

Yes, watched it up to £18250 and think it went either £18500 or £18750 just at the end before closing. Guess there is a reserve on it.
Makes mine look a bargain

I've just been told by a friend that was interested in it that it can be bought for £21k apparently. So is that £22,260 with 5% buyers premium?

I bet it can. Daft price. It has a part history, rattling clutch, electrical gremlins, worn bushes, no warranty or PPI…. The seller was silly not to accept the offer in the first auction. Red and manual, in my opinion is a very hard sell.

Just my 2p worth, but my view is that too many owners 'believe' their car is worth far more than it is. These are not collected by many and were hardly the pinnacle of automotive achievement when new.

Yes they are a bargain when compared to a air cooled Porche or Ferrari... but that's only a reflection of the above.

Spot on. I sold my red manual 4200 for about £14-15k trade in 2011. I would not value it at any more than that today.
