A garage in Torquay has a used C5 for £1695!

I guess the most expensive one I've seen was the one which claimed to be new, unused and in its original box.  However, there was a bit of a joke running on here about whether there was actually a C5 in the box, or a dead rabbit or just a pile of rubble etc...  Anyone else remember that?

The owner I think wanted more than the £1,200 that Adam Harper charged.  Can't remember exactly how much the Ebay seller wanted for it now, but I think the price you've seen is something close to it.

What condition was the Garage one in?  They clearly haven't done their research and just slapped a price tag on it.  Anything's possible.

It was used with scratches on the front corner and wheel trims, mine is in better condition for £250!

I bought a really unused C5 last week, brand new. And I mean really never used for a single yard. Lucky me paid only GBP 450,00 for it, but he, if you want it to be the most expensive one you have ever seen or heard of, you are most welcome to buy it for £ 7500,-
As a bonus I will deliver it at your doorstep. Wrapped in a beautiful golden coloured ribbon. ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

ps, before I get to much offers, first one that pays, gets it.

The "whats in the box" was an Ebay sale;

...I reckon the most expensive c5's are the modified ones such as Adam Harpers World Record machine, and then there's the jet powered c5.

Then you have a genius such as ElectricDave at the other end of the scale, building properly quick c5's on a budget  8)
