You know... i'm not smitten with the big pimpin rims but it does indeed seem like a lot of car for 23K. If fact it is alot of car look at the size of that thing.... Go get it!

Current: 85' GTS QV
It's a simple process...... it's just complicated by human beings....

Ed, I looked at a 95 Brooklands a few years back. Sucker was 19 feet long. I thought it would be funny to have a driver to get me between court appearances and be dropped off in front of the courthouse. Maintenance can be quite steep on those cars, but they do drive smooth.

I like it! Why is it so inexpensive?

Looks like an awesome buy for the money, but I'm also curious as to why it's so inexpensive.

don't know. just happened upon it. seems to be in the right ballpark. there are several on cars.com in that price range. They have almost brand new 2005's for 50k. I was shocked looking around. Lots of pretty damn good deals on mercedes too.

Peter was selling his Bentley from the lifts and lunch event. As I recall, it was an 05 red label for something like 47k.

Supply and demand. Over here used ones are a dime a dozen. Painfully expensive to run, zero fun to drive, and horrible to park.

However I was also tempted and took a look at Bentley Aranage last year.....

are they expensive because of gas mileage or repairs? i watched a video by jay leno, he bought one new in 1989 and said he hasn't spent a penny on it.

I think Boxer is right...in England, English cars are a dime a dozen, and since petrol was the equivalent of $10/U.S. gal. about 2 years ago, I'm guessing it got more painful over there lately, and remember Chevy Chase on the roundabout in European Vacation? Well, imagine driving the M5 at rush hour switching lanes in a Bentley! As for parking on those narrow cobblestones, and up on the curb as they do, when parking you'd take more than half the sidewalk. Minis only take half.

I like it, looks like a smooth drive around town type. I'm not sure about the wheels though, think I'd have to do something different with those.

Both. Gas mileage is horrible, even by Ferrari standards. On repair costs same syndrome as the 456 GT, forget what they are worth now, when new they were $100-200k cars and still carry the maintenance costs of super luxury car.

and while your at it Ed, wear a fedora and fur coat and change your occupation to hospitality host or pharmaceutical sales rep..

Can't wait for the pics when you go to your favorite diner for wings.

The biggest decision is not whether to buy it or not, but rather, what color fuzzy dice go best to compliment light blue

If you get a white RR or Bentley, you can rent it out for weddings.

(of course, I do that with my tdf blue 550 too!)

TDF Blue is definitely my favorite of all Ferrari ppg's. I've only seen it polished out once, on a 465 when I was working with a buddy of mine. Beautiful paint!

Boy that 550 looks nice but the color looks more like Pozzi than TDF.
