have seen one for real at McGrath Maserati. Really easy on the eye and quite uncommon. Just pray they didn't use any left over paint from Alfa Romeo.........

Wheels marked as 5 (top condition score) but picture shows massive scuff -
Strange that. Love the colour combi in and out but not with wood IMHO.

Interesting the date in the dash is wrong which could suggest whoever is servicing it could not reset the service display which makes no sense as they know the exact clutch wear.

^^^. guessing the S8 can generate wallet busting bills too. Would still rather sit in my QP than an Audi.

I have no view of their reliability aside from generalisations about the Marque... and whilst I’d always prefer to sit in my QP, for meetings with customers turning up in the S8 would be a little less conspicuous :)

Can see the logic in that. Already have limited parking or might have been tempted. In reality it is far too close the the QP to own in parallel

Seems like a lot of money for a 2005 70k+ QPV in the current market.
Mark, I think COVID lock down has driven a lot of buyers to remote auctions, often resulting in high prices. I am not sure why people pay retail prices at an auction but it happens frequently (recently a 2005 XKR conv cost 21.5k and a 2007 AMV8 conv cost 47.5k - both hopefully nice cars but no warranty etc!)

I love red cars, my Alfa 166 was red, but darker than this. Red just doesn't seem to work on a QP (for me).

I think wheels make all the difference on red qp. It would work better with 20" and maybe darker.

a friend of mine bought it but he does own about 60 other cars so doubt he is too worried about it not working out!
Does he have one of ours in that 60 car garage? Interested if he is a fan of S8 or Led Zep?
