It’s been for sale at Kahns for literally years with varying prices.

Think it’s basically been for sale since it was imported in 2016. It was featured in BMW Car (I think) back then too.

If you’re referring to the Kahns car I guess it is too expensive. Looks nice enough in the pics but seems there is no appetite for it at the price. As said many times before, an asking price doesn’t correlate with a cars true worth. The market will decide the latter.

I've wondered the same - it's a fantastic looking car and also very low miles. It's so hard to put a value on cars that are this rare.... I wonder if being an import puts people off?

E65 LCI B7 #111

Post by CaesarBob » Wed Oct 14, 2020 3:33 pm

As Phil said, price has got to be the main factor. This has been advertised as high as £60k that I've seen, but mainly in the £30-35k range. Also, being an import the availability of history can be a concern for many buyers.

Either way, it's best bench mark was #114 that was recently auctioned on Collecting Cars. That was higher miles at 57k but it was also a Japanese import. Made £16,720 + fees in Sep'20. That suggests a more realistic value for #111 is maybe low £20k's.

Crazy the range of prices it's been advertised at - £60K!

It's hard to argue with the auction results with regards to value though.

Maybe the media side of things too, as a Japanese spec would need changing over, car is super charged - are there issues with these units too?

Sometimes it's not what you buy but who you buy off...not heard of anything bad out of Kahn's but personally not a fan of their products overall. A bit to west side gangster or Dubai drag strip for my liking. Works over there but not over in the UK....im my humble opinion of course.

I suppose it could be worse and the car could be in a multi storey in Keighley!

Could this one have finally found a new owner? :think

It passed it's first MOT since 2016 a few weeks ago and all the adverts seem to have disappeared/expired.

Hope it has sold as would be good to know it’s on the road and boosting the brand when it’s out and about.
