  2. whats the current rate of the pound in € ?
    I need to convert it otherwise i dont have a clue
     
  3. are these esimated prices or were they actually sold for those amounts?
    i always thought the bugatti royale was the most expensive car ever sold
     
  4. They are esimated values but I guess previous auction results and private sales would be entered into the equation. Obviously this list is open to conjecture, there are some obvious absenses and prices are clearly debatable.
     
  5. is it mentioned why each of these cars cost that much in the article, is it possible to scan the article ??
     
  6. The P4 is a bargain ! Id rather have that than a GTO !
     
  7. i thought the 917k worth more
     
  8. They are definately worth more (but aren't all Porsches). The price that a 917 demands depends mainly on its provenance/history. The major race winners (read Le Mans) would be priced higher but generally the rest of the 917s are demanding substantially less than the 2.5 million pounds.
     
  9. Read the sidebar.
     
  10. 917K without no particular history go for 1.5M$ no ??

     
  11. 917K without no particular history go for 1.5M$ no ??

     
  12. Probably a little bit more but around that mark. Every 917 has some history in one way or another.
     
  13. Can you post the whole article?
     
  14. any idea if there was ever a more expensive car sold at auction then the royale...?
    and i'd also rather have a P3/4 than a 250GTO. but i believe GTO's will never again gain the excessive prices they had in the 80's.
    i wonder what price the last sold GTO got

    anyway, nice thread tdc911. could easily become an interesting discussion!

  15. tdc, is it possible to post the whole article ???
     
  16. I'll try and post the whole article tomorrow. BTW did you get this magazine?
     
  17. Didn't freaking load.
     
  18. These cars are only worth what people who love them want to pay for them. In my mind, a '70 Hemi Cuda is worth way more than all of 'em. This is a just a large pissing contest over who can spend the most money on somethin. I'd rather have the 45,000 dollar "ordinary" hemi cuda, and a nice house and a nice boat, than pay 1,000,000 dollars for a car that cost $4,000 when it was built!
     
  19. Now a lot of Hemis are pushing and surpassing the $1,000,000 mark.
     
  20. My point exactly, do you see hobo's biddin on 'em? Nope. Just millionares like Leno who collect 'em and show them off. That's at least better than a slow junkyard death.
     
  21. Maybe you entered the wrong forum... do you understand "rarity value"?
     
  22. Is it possible for you to post the cover story?? I'm a HUGE Miura fan and would be eternaly thankful
     
  23. the last one that changed hands was in the beginning of this year
    it was 3445GT and it was sold for less then US$ 6 million
     
  24. ok, thanks for the info
    i already thought you'd know this.

    btw, check your PM please
