If it's going to be Cheryl Cole can you leave her rose covered posterior out of it please.
I have thought of some defence and justification for a £10K-£12K price. Didn't a Cup owned by a police officer in Scotland go to a buyer in mainland Europe? Cup 001 may have more appeal to more Alfitsi than just British ones, and a larger catchment area of prospective buyers may lead to such a price.
Who's to say there's not some Alfa addict in Italy or South Africa looking at a driveway full of cars wondering which two or three they may chop in to own Cup 001?
With that Brunello 3.2 going from £3K to £8K then if the owner does part with Cup 001 why shouldn't they try to get as much as possible for it rather than possibly have a trader double their money on it?
It doesn't have the 'must have mods' but then wouldn't be as it left the factory.
Look at adverts for other Cups selling them on their exclusivity and specialness. I can see this one being cited in adverts with sentences like 'This is Cup XXX, Cup 001 was recently advertised for £12K, though that was a one owner, low mileage example it gives some idea of how sought after GTV Cups are and the prices they warrant...'
With people here saying that they're like 'semi exotics' in how different they are to drive then I think they need to pitched in that way.
I think it needs to be marketed like this:
Cheryl Cole, Kim Kardashian and Helen Flanagan all benefit from decent photographers, Paps, lighting and resolution and possibly airbrushing.
I think 'If they'd advertised that car better they could have achieved a better price for it' is something that's been mooted about a few cars here and elsewhere before.
If Cup 001 is special it needs to be pitched that way not like some down at heel Ford Cougar or Nissan Almera.
It's like Captain Slow's Bogey? The vendor wants to be talked out of it for the next two years? Someone will do him a deal on a new front badge if it helps the vendor keep it longer?
