    Dax de Dion 5.7ltr being auctioned today

    I have just seen this on "The Market". It apparently needs to be sold this evening and the current bid is £32k which seems a great deal if anyone is interested.

    Does anyone know the car?

    I've been watching this one with interest. My Dax is now sold, but had it not, my plan was to put it up on The Market - the company behind it is actually based just a couple of miles from me.

    The description is quite entertaining in places, for example: "He’s cherished this opportunity to own and drive the car and has overseen a couple of refinements during his ownership, including the stiffening of the steering column mounting to eliminate slight scuttle shake".

    From the photos it looks like a quality build. The reserve has been reached at £32k, so it will be interesting to see what it finally sells for...

    I thought I recognised it. That’s because I bought a ticket when it appeared on RevComps

    The winner lived in Paignton. Obviously not his bag and unexpected money in the bank as far as he’s concerned that’s why the reserve is low. Expect to see it shortly at a dealer near you circa £50-60k!

    Well spotted Dek.

    Only 35 minutes to go - though The Auction does operate an "anti-snipe" policy so it may well be extended a few times if the bidding goes bonkers in the last few minutes.

    Ha! I remember it now......I also bought a couple of tickets in the auction. If anyone can get this that cheaply it is a heck of a deal.

    This is an appealing price, I wish I buy my first Cobra for a similar price, probably not
    My name is Mat.

    Afraid it was! And I didn’t need another car, least of all another Cobra but like I’ve always said you can’t have too many cars. Number 6 incoming! I’m blaming you Martin for alerting me to it.

    That is brilliant....good on you Dec! I wish I had taken the insurance money on my car now so I had the ready cash!
    I hope it is as good as it looks.
