Yep, uniqueness only goes so far................maybe 30 years from now it will seem a bargain! I won't be here to see it if it is.

I think with it having been a prototype before the full release of the 100 models makes it unique. The red stitching, missing door strips, unique badge and wheels all point towards it being a 100 but it isn’t. Which is interesting. Shame the Veneer has lost all its grey staining though.

I think his price is also relying heavily on it’s feature in The TV show, but it’s not like it was a good show. Prices are on the up though, but not that much.

I would not buy this over another 100 (or R) unless all things = and within <1k.

Luxury cars of this age are still "used cars" ..... 12-15k for perfect low mile XJR examples Above 70k mines --- nothing special.

I paid 12k for my extra R about two years -- 22k

Find one for 4-5k w/ 80k and in no time you have spent 4k fixing it .... for a few k more you have an instant, enjoyable car ..... the cheap one will never be as nice as this car.

I think the whole 'prototype asertion' makes the rest of the advert suspicious in my mind: All prototypes were destroyed at Whitley- usually around the 2 year mark.


This was upsetting to us young engineers

There were prototypes I'd become attached to- but, much like 'Charlottes Web' they were destined for the chopping block.


The only exception to that- was tax paid vehicles- like 'M698 GDU'- the white V12 I got very familiar with (which I hope is still knocking around somewhere!) and the Ultima kit cars they built up for the original Aston Martin middle engine Vantage prototypes- which I saw for sale years later!

The one for 24k is now advertised for 19+ ..... an auction site does bring more eyes and the possibility of higher prices .. but the costs make it a wash for the seller.

Although a few k one way or the other does not make a market.
