What's the point?  Both have similar kms, but one car is 2 years older and ~$20k cheaper.

Minor differences; younger is LE 1 owner as opposed to 2 owner older model (LE??). Not sure if the LE 2007 is the Victory version however the killer IMO is the older car has the techno (carbon) cloth inserts rather than the full leather fit. Has a bearing on price in the UK and seems here as well
Obviously Zags pricing is always inflated - there is a great looking one in Syndey which is another $10k

Thought it was 06  :doh:, seems like big difference for basically the same car but Zags can get the extra by just having it in their showroom I guess.

1 owner as opposed to 2 owner 

ok... here's my insight based on 23 years of experience...

the number of owners an exotic has, has an inverse effect to regular cars.

the more owners the better in my experience. Long term owners are much more likely to defer repairs and maintenance.

Perfect case in point... i have a glass 308 in right now... current owner 31 years, car is 33 years old.

It's rusted beyond belief in all sorts of places and I've been working on the car since february, when all it really came in for was an inspection and to fix the "stiff" bonnet (whch was almosr rusted shut).

Turned into a major service, full exhaust system overhaul, front end chassis rebuild, belly section rebuild.... basically 30 years of deferred work that he's finally happy to fix up.


So, each time an exotic changes hands, invariably they get some love and attention that is nothing but good for them.

for sure there are always exceptions, but do NOT buy an exotic based on number of owners being low.

That makes complete sense FF, and I really think it is true (on the whole but with exceptions of course)
You can say I'm wrong, but my garage doesn't agree with that statement!!!

dodger bassed on the pure numbers assuming both cars drive the same ect...... (i haven't opened any photos to see what extras there may be) but i'd grab the 2007 one over the 2005 one for 2 main reasons. The 2005 model is well 2 years older than the other, the 2nd thing is that the more expensive one is the drive away price where as the 2005 one is not the drive away price.... add on the on road costs to the cheaper one and there isn't much difference between them.....

Come to think of it you're right, what's the first thing you do with a new car ? get it checked get things fixed etc.
