    Does anyone have any idea what the plexiglass Daytona at RM sold for?

    Coys is currently marketing the ex-Dick Wilkins Plexi Daytona (chassis number 13271) as 'UK chassis No.1'... and... 'documented as being the very first example of one of the mostly highly prized front-engined Ferraris to be delivered new to Great Britain.'

    The documentation which Coys refers to is what you might call a promise by Maranello Concessionaires to deliver the first RHD UK car to Wilkins.

    I have already been in touch with Coys to communicate my views on this description, given the extensive evidence readily available elsewhere...

    OK, so the clarification on this description is that the Wilkins car was 'Order number 1', not necessarily 'Delivery number 1'...

    There are two RHD Daytona order numbers that are lower than the car Coys are selling.

    I can't help but be amused by this. What's the betting there were similar letters to half-a-dozen other customers promising them the first car?

    FWIW I make it the seventh UK RHD car registered. Having said that, is someone really going to pay more if it was the first UK car rather than the third or the sixth or the ninth or whatever? Although it often strikes me how poor auction house research is on cars they are selling (especially for potentially large amounts) given the huge sums they cream off in commission.

    Mark - I'm aware of this. FWIW they told me their research showed that it was the first RHD Daytona ordered in the UK. As far as I know, this boils down to it being the car attached to the first person who said 'Yes, I'd like a Daytona please'. Which isn't saying much.

    Jonathan - I agree. At first I thought the letter was the only basis for the claim, but they then clarified and said they had confirmed it was 'the first car ordered'. Which, as I say above, isn't saying much. I seem to recall a similarly questionable bit of marketing regarding the 'Ian Fleming Aston DB2/4' in recent years by the same company.

    I have hammer price of £682,000, so I make that £765,640 after premium+VAT.
