I rescued it

It badly needed a full bumper and bonnet respray which I didn't do, so I'd make sure that had been done 4years on.

Thought it was familiar. Mileage getting high now, but still...could be worth a punt.

I messaged the seller

Front end still a mess and on original clutch

I'd pay no more than £50k

That's a fair shout.

At the same time, I'm trying to see if this beauty can be secured - one thing's for sure, it ain't selling for £110k:

18months ago Leicester Audi had a 52k mile V10 R8 with buckets for £52k.

I nearly bought it but went F-TYPE R, and don't regret that.

Based on that, this red one looks overpriced.

Top spec, but the front end was/is a mess....and I can't see any clutch being happy past 70k, let alone shocks etc

What makes you say it won't sell for 110k? I reckon there will be plenty of takers for a 991 gen 1 GTS in PTS.

There may well be, but it's been on for a long time. I'm seeing if there's movement. 991 prices are dipping though, the new one seems to behaving more of an impact than I thought, in spite of the fact it's breathed on.

One day. I'll own a voodoo 991 GTS, if it's the last thing I do :-)
