    The only thing I know is I saw it last night and drooled over it. Whats market price on a Daytona these days? 600 or 700? I have no idea. I saw the bid go from like 40k to 300k in one bid, but thats still way short of value and like 2 weeks to go on the auction. I was hoping for a thread on this. They had a yellow one fail to meet reserve a while back. I think it went to the mid 500s.

    Edit: I was wrong, yellow car bid to 490

    The U.K. version of BaT, Collecting Cars sold a Daytona last month for £450k all in, it had less miles than this and was original colour and Classiche certified. That should give so,e guide to what this will realise. Regardless as a car brought last in 1999, I suspect the sellers is already ahead even at the current high bid.

    15009 is going to need a lot of work to make it nice. It would also benefit from going back to the original color Argento Metallizzato 106-E-1.

    It will be good to see what a real selling price for a driver Daytona is. I would guess just under $500k.

    Resale red isn't quite as bad on a Daytona as it is on some of the other models. I agree with Marcel, though-- the original color would have been nicer.

    This is indeed, an interesting car.

    If I were still in the market, I would probably be investigating. From the pictures, it looks very "sincere" (for me, this is a very high-praise statement); short-comings are pretty apparent, and overall condition of the car looks consistent across many different aspects. My guess is that the car stands a good chance of being more-or-less exactly what it appears to be.

    When I was shopping, there were not many cars that I thought looked "sincere" in the pictures.

    If it gets anywhere close to $500k, I'll be thrilled, as it would indicate that Daytona prices are rebounding a bit, and I'll be less under-water on my car... :)

    One curious thing is how green the back-surface of the tool-kit vinyl is. I've seen a lot of kits that had a slight green tint, but never seen one where it was so strong.

    I've often wondered if those green-back bags were some really nice reproduction that was available a long time ago (and hence now generally old looking, and sort of common), or whether the green-tint indicates something about the vintage of the bag (as there are some (very likely to be well-preserved original) bags where the backing is just brown)...

    I'd be surprised if this goes over $450k.
