With that mileage what are you going to do with it?

Sit on it and hope you make a return in a marketplace so unpredictable at the moment. Used car prices are at an all-time high because of a shortage of new cars, but that bubble will slowly deflate rather than burst by next year. I'm sure all cars, clios included, are getting a leg up from that.

If you stick miles on it i suppose you can listen to the sound of depreciation as it sits on your drive.

In a world where we're either driving electric or hydrogen cars - not me i'll be long gone - who's going to buy a petrol car, let alone an old classic. Fuel is £1.50 + down south now, how long before it's £2.00 a litre?

And how many petrol stations will be converted to electric? Will you even be able to get the stuff?

The UK was home to 8,380 petrol stations in June 2021, according to Statista. There were 13,107 in 2000.

There's actually more public places to charge electric cars than there is petrol with more than 42,000 charge point connectors across the UK in over 15,500 locations. 7,000 charge point connectors were added in 2020 alone. Not all of these are great though.

I've already seen my local Tesco remove two diesel pumps already, i'm sure others have as well.

Wealthy collectors car maybe just for kicks. For the rest of us....not a chance.

I'd rather pay £5-6,000 for a higher mileage one and enjoy it while i can still afford the road tax and fuel.

If it sells then well done whoever you are 👏

That's about that sellers only hope at that price, although they would probably still be put off by the wheels 🤣

Saw it the other night as I've been keeping an eye on prices to try and work out how much to sell mine for.

I could be wrong. Seen cars go for what I’d consider crazy money.

All you can do is put yours up for a price you feel it’s worth and let the market decide. Still quite a few scrappers around and the traders are still lurking in the shadows looking for a bargain.

If we weren’t on the cusp of a complete change in the car market, I’d be confident for the future of old petrol cars like this. I hope I’m wrong as I have 3 Clio Sports myself, but I just can’t see it.

Seems crazy money for me as I'd use and abuse it, it all depends on how deep pockets people have, 15k to some folk in the car scene is peanuts tbh

Why not put it on the turinis if you have them, if commanding such a price.

Those wheels looks crap on it imo and doesn't do the car justice.

This isn’t about used car prices.

This is aiming at a different market where it’s collector car prices. Agree or not with the perceived value it doesn’t follow the same trend.

Classic minis, beetles, golf GTI, 205 GTI etc.

All been going up for years. Low milage examples being sought out but even average examples get a bump. That all happened while used cars were trading normally for the last 15-20 years.

I do agree on the fuel point though. I’ve got a few older cars. My classic mini in particular makes me worry that given the amount of money I’ve chucked at it that it’s value will decline as petrol becomes less readily available.

I think the decline in petrol stations you cite is a bit misleading though. Most of those would be small village petrol stations. Certainly the trend here. Also more charging points. Yes but they don’t set fuel pumps up in car parks that take 8hrs to fill your tank either.

Fair play for listing it for more than any c**t ever paid for a Cup (new) in 2002/03 - surely waiting until the Turini’s were painted would have been better for the advert?

On a side note - should have done the wheels silver, if you’re peddling originality, go original.
