That rule is my own personal Cool Wall rule. Basically, a car becomes less cool once it's rare enough that its owners park it in a collection and only drive it gently on sunny days to classic car shows etc. A car that's rare enough not to be readily available on the market is certainly going to have this problem. If you can't buy one and use it as designed (not baby it) whenever you want because you're too busy worrying about putting mileage on it, wearing it out or the possibility of it being damaged, losing originality etc, the car's coolness is deservedly diminished.
When you think about it, 22,000 Euros, 'one for sale', 'amazing original condition' and 'Belgium' all combine to indicate that the Samantha is already some way down the dreaded unobtainable / undriveable museum piece track.
Okay, I do get your point and see what you mean. Maybe not so
.... but I mention the 'one for sale in Belgium' as it's where I live (at weekends) and the car in question is half an hour away from my place. So apart from the fact I don't have the cash, it's not that
(And it really is in amazing original condition
) But if I did own it, I would not cosset it, but use it as intended. Much the same as I would if I had a 105 Coupé which sells for similar money. Not a daily driver, but something to enjoy at weekends.
But yes, as only 100 of them were made, so I guess chances of ownership is rather limited.
However, I would question judging a car as uncool just because there were only 100 of them........ GTV Cup uncool because there were only 155 of them (in the UK)?????
Anyway, I do totally respect your opinion and reasoning, albeit, (in this particular case) completely and utterly wrong.
