That's just pure profiteering. They've given it a clean and added about £6000 to the price.

Be interesting to see if it actually sells for that.

It’s not profiteering. You can buy a 924 turbo from many sources not just this source. It’s capitalism in a free and democratic Country where you can buy and sell what you like for as much or as little as you like.

Some potential owners chose not to buy at auction as it’s buyer beware. But they may pay a premium from a specialist dealer where you get full dealer service and back up. Check out the other ‘premium’ cars on offer. All at at the north end of values.

Just saying :beer:

I’ve been keeping an eye on Jensen Interceptors and they’ve had one in ever since I first looked at them. Over priced by about £20k and has been sat there for 2 years at least.

I assume they’re using them as display pieces!

Friends of mine spotted this one on Peter Vardy's forecourt today, so looks like it's still up for sale, strangely enough ;-)

If it was this one, then it's more like £10k they've slapped on it?

I saw this car when it was at Alan Stokes workshop.The lady owner was interested in selling.I made an initial 5k offer.It needed some work but was an excellent original car.I would have gone to 7k for it.Unforunately, It didnt materialise,and yes
I would have tried to get a profit too!

Nothing is selling car wise in the UK, if you need to sell then a very realistic price is required.

Combination of uncertainty over Brexit and whether ICE cars have any form of lifespan I guess.

I personally don't think it will sell for that, despite what someone has said on this forum. That is overpriced. The 924 is not.the same cash cow as the 944 and 911.
I have four 924's and hope to make a living from restoring then as well as other parts including the dashboard, but don't expect this to happen overnight.
