Reallistically I can't buy any more at the minute. I'm in the midst of doing up my house to sell and buying my sister out of her share of my late mum's house as well as urgently needing to get a new daily as the old skoda is starting to need work and give grief. I will also have to get rid of my SD1 Vitesse, Fiesta Mk2, Polo and my 2.0S Capri.

I can still dream though and one day i will find a MK2 "S" that I'm in a position to buy.

I've seen this car at the NEC, have to say I appreciate it but it's not for me, especially at that price :o
That red mk2 S mind is stunning, really would like to own it.

It was on display at Brooklands in 2014 too. I can't dispute that it is a rare car, but it's definitely an acquired taste.
It was for sale a few years ago, also at £45K, if I remember correctly. It didn't sell though.

Andrew,

I'm not surprised, it would take a (very) special purchaser to pay that. There are a lot of nice cars out there for that sort of cash.

I think he knows how hard it's going to be to sell. A thousand words can't alter the way it looks :D

It was up for £25000 ono

With the 12700mile 280 sold recently too, it appears people are still paying big money for good low milers....Hope they get driven.
