    Am I missing something about the 7 on BAT to justify the price?

    Croc is it the color?

    Too many bidders with too much money and not enough knowledge about what they are bidding on!

    Anker is correct, to my mind.

    You could buy a new Caterham 420R for that money. Iím still confused what engine spec that car had? Inferred as a Cosworth but never got an answer to that question.

    You could look at the price as the "Buy it now" on Ebay............

    Yeah but you wouldn't have it TODAY. Time is money for some people.

    Fair point, but that was a significant premium. As Croc notes, the new price for a 420R SV is less. As a data point, Beachman Racing recently had a 420R SV listed on their site as ready to ship for under $49k. There are always people willing to overpay for immediate gratification or for a very specific color, but it's rare these kind of outlier prices reset the market.

    That was a kit, not a car. Just sayin'.

    Price what Bruce Beachman charges to build a car. I think you'll find it's surprisingly reasonable. Even the factory only charges 2395 GBP (~ $3170) for that option.

    Bruce quoted me $7k to assemble a 420R. That's reasonable, but it's not nothing.

    My information must have been incorrect, I heard a different number about a year ago. Regardless, having seen the quality of Brue's work firsthand, it is as you note, a reasonable fee.

    I don't think we are going to change each others mind. Clearly there were two people who really wanted that car, but I remain surprised by the final price of $63k with buyer's fee.
