Silverstone Delorean
#1
While wasting an hour I came across this Delorean for sale at Silverstone Classic Car Auction on the 31st July if anyone is interested seems a low estimate, dare say there with be Dealers sniffing around to bump up the price on that estimate?

MOT results over the last few years seemed to have a lot of failures, would this be a sign of the car generally needing a lot of work?

I saw that as well but most were for the tyres so I wouldn't read too much into it. It could be the case or it could be just someone looking to keep the original tyres, I wouldn't if I was planning on using it but you never know folks circumstances.

Yehh other than cross member rust seems fairly common DeLorean MOT failure items.

They weren't the original tyres....it didn't look too bad to me.

Sold for £25,875. Plus additional costs I make that just short of £30k at £29,755 (12.5% plus VAT on that).

So, someone grabbed a bargain or an expensive project?

I think it was a good buy.

DeLoreans don't seem to do very well at auctions ...most people's natural caution kicks in.

.....Ive bought 4 from actions over the years and don't regret any on them.........live dangerously folk if you want a bargain ...is my tip.......or pay RETAIL!
