    Cheap at twice the price!

    Lovely car, PERFECT colour combo. Shame about the dashboard trim, but that's easily rectified.

    I did not read anything about what was done to the most critical part of evaluating a Dino; rust abatement.
    There was a "restoration" but that has a huge latitude on meanings.

    Did I miss it or was any condition on rust mentioned?

    The current bid makes no sense.

    Any idea what is at play here? I’m watching in wonder too.

    I actually thought it was a GTS when I posted based on the price !
    The GT must be on the move.

    He may be a naive bidder. I checked his ‘track record’ he does bid and fairly often some pretty high bids, so may just finally win a car.

    I disagree. Good Dinos still command high prices, and rightly so.

    Does he ever buy or just bid?

    This SHOULD be his first buy. I approve of his choice in cars, not so much on the $$

    My thoughts are it MUST be past reserve too at this price point.

    Yes, but this one doesn’t look so special. Yes, it’s a nice color, but not 100% correct and really just a cosmetic restoration that happened 20 years ago.

    John, YOUR car is easily one of my favorite of all Dino’s for a host of reasons and details, that to me, make all the difference. Your car is priceless in my eyes. This one not even close to yours, other than blue in color.

    Sold for $400k and not a mention of any chassis rust abatement on Dino 03290, the most important factor when assessing condition.
    Buyers sure have changed...some of the comments show that they have never seen a Dino rear window before!

    Wow. That’s a big number !
    I imagine the buyer did some due diligence behind the scenes at that price.

    What’s interesting is there were multiple people willing to pay north of 375k

    @ $405K all in, I don't get it.

    But what do I know. Best of luck to the new owner.

    That's about £325K - doesn't seem excessive to me.

    Only goes to show that the market for Dinos is stronger than some of the pundits would have us believe.
