    Think about how much more car you could get for that money. Or how many nice 240s.

    Does anyone think its worth the price ?
    Are we talking cars as actual drive on the road or carefully stored investments ?

    Nobody does. Prices like this are a part of the "everything is a commodity" American Pickers circle jerk that is going on at the moment.

    Most cars have a depreciation curve against their age: you get the initial almost new car depreciation, then a continuous downward slide until they bottom out somewhere between 15 and 20 years old.
    Then they sit roughly at that point until they get to 25 or 30 years old, and then start rising slowly for a few years until they're around 35 years old and then they jump up again.
    At this point, they are valued pretty much entirely as a speculative commodity (rather than as a vehicle) and are at the whim of "the market".

    The exact shape of the curve and the dollar values depend on the exact car, of course, but the overall trend is pretty much universal regardless of whether you are talking about a Hyundai or an Aston Martin.

    I cannot see how/why 850 T5Rs/Rs can be the vehicles that buck this trend so completely.
  • I see it as testing the market more than actually expecting to get it. Either that or the dealer is on something. I don't see interior pics either, and it would want to be perfect inside and out.

    It would only appeal to someone who wants to put it away in speculative hopes, but even then I agree the ask is way ahead of real world value for a long time to come.

    For 30k you're getting into P1800 values and in collector terms the 850 isn't close at this point in time.
