Amazing that there are two ultra low mileage righthand drive examples remaining. Does anyone know if the red one sold?

Re: A600 TEN for sale. The same Alpine as J600 TEN?

Postby Bazzer501 » Sat Dec 01, 2018 7:57 am

Hi all,

This is the ex Mike Vordran car that came from a car collection in Singapore. I know then when Mike purchased this car it needed some recommissioning to make it fully roadworthy again along with changing the speedometer from KMH to MPH.

The registration WAS J600 TEN not A600 TEN so maybe either they have got it wrong or its been changed again ... but why?

Mike was a member of C.A.R and at that time I was able to get some photographs of the car. These were taken some years ago now but I'm glad I kept them...!
Cheers, Barry.

Mike Vorndron sold this for £44000, so dealer looking for £13000 profit for putting it in a showroom. When Mike sold it, it was immaculate and needed nothing!!

Hopefully the new owner will drive it and enjoy it and have fun in it rather than just sit in a garage again, there is no fun with a garage queen.
If it’s still on it’s original rubber it will definitely need a new set of tyres.

I’m in touch with the previous owner who just sold it via KGF but not the new owner yet.

It would be nice to see it driven and I may be wrong but I doubt it will be as these sort of investment purchases rarely are as much of the value is in the low mileage. If you wanted one to use you wouldn’t necessary have to spend £50k+

It takes all sorts and there are plenty of people who like nothing better than to store then away and keep them detailed. It it wasn’t for them these ultra low miles cars wouldn’t exist. A bit like the guys who keep Star wars figures in the packets and Lego sets sealed up unbuilt. Whatever your hobby seems the unused collectors items are always worth the most.

This normally doesn’t bother me but I have struggled a bit with the Clio V6 001 which is very low miles and I wanted to use it. I must have added 2000km taking it to mas du clos for the 10th anniversary and Le Mans. I have variously protected the front end with film and masking tape but it still suffered loads of chipping. Fortunately the value is not all in the mileage on this one as it will always be unique unlike a regular car where the uniqueness is all in the mileage.

The guy who just sold the 610 also had this one and maintained it absolutely couldn’t be driven to retain the value and he was proven right with the auction result:

Well said Stephen :up ... my sentiments completely ....... What any person chooses to spend their own money on, is their own business, If that person chooses to store or use their purchase, and gets pleasure out of that purchase in their own way .......

THEY HAVE SPENT THEIR MONEY WISELY.

It is not for others to tell them what they should do.
As for the comment about the tyres which starts off .... "If it's still on it's original rubber etc " ... clearly a fact not known, why insult the new owners intelligence by TELLING him he needed a new set of tyres.
This type of post says more about the poster's attitude towards others, rather than the actual subject under discussion.

As you say John and Stephen, each to their own and I agree, if you wanted a useable car then there are other options out there that won't devalue.

However, I'm clearly some sort of anti-christ to these people. ;-)
