..or a Maserati 4200 with a proper Ferrari engine plus flappy paddles..?
GTV prices are being pushed / perceived to being higher than they truly are, leading the unwary to overbid and financially regret it for some time to come
There are many exotic / worthwhile alternatives once asking prices hit £5k or so - and unless all these other alternatives are hoovered up first (avoiding them possibly falling below £4k due to volume available), it would probably be financially unwise spending more than c £3.5k on a GTV, however nice - If I spent £4k on a GTV now, I wouldnt realistically expect to see it back anytime soon...if re-advertised for long enough you may catch the unprepared or those willing to buy at any price - that would be more luck than judgement inmho
I would like all good GTV variants to stabilise around £3k for a good while - that will keep spares down, yet elevate the lower values to a level that will encourage rolling restoration rather than breaking when a couple of four hundred £ bills come along..
imho a £10k GTV is neither realistic or desirable...and I do love them
- But at £10k, i love the following more: Cayman, 911, Boxster, Lotus, TVR Griffith, Maserati 3200, 4200, M3. M5, many hot Mercs, Supercharged Jags, 350z, 370z, Hot Fords, hot Scoobies, EVOs...etc etc - Come on, Maserati with a 400hp Ferrari engine or a wee Alfa? - Lets enjoy the GTVs for what they are and not be disappointed if prices dont outgrow Maserati/Ferrari or hand built TVR with 300bhp /ton, twice that of Alfa....
