just came across this car - hot pink Diablo Roadster from Dubai - $150k.  :scared:  i figgered for that price you'd just grab it and repaint it and redo the interior, but i called them up and he said it's already sold though.  :waah:  you might be able to contact them and see if the new owner will take a premium over what he paid for it...

Oops.  Saw it weeks ago, but didn't know anyone was looking (or would want to look, considering the entire interior has been hit as well).

I am waiting on the guy to get back to me.

I feel worst than when I missed out just by one day on the XJ220 for only $235k in sydney. Or the Diablo coupe for $80k in Melb in 2003 (missed that one by 30min).

You gotta be kidding me. Now I feel even worse  :(

What do you mean the interior was hit?

is that all? That would be getting retrimmed along with the new paint. I thought he meant the car was hit and so bad that even the interior was damaged - meaning the car had a real big smash.

Yeah just the pink. :boggled:

I figured by the time its been resprayed AND retrimmed it would no longer be a bargain. Am I wrong?

It's regardless about the bargain issue. It's the fact that you can't find them for sale. As I said in my first post, I've been actively searching for 4 years.

Anyway, spoke to the guy. He said he'll pass my details to the buyer and I just have to wait an see  :(
