Default Looking for a CGT actively !

I have made the decision to add a CGT to the collection. My budget is $600-650k depending on mileage etc. I have looked into everyone that is on sale publicly and haven't come up with something solid that is not priced out of my budget. I do like the guards red one with 10k miles for $619k but honestly I think being in the 5 digit miles value is gonna significantly affected in the future.

If anyone has any leads of individuals that may be selling I would highly appreciate the info.

I wouldn't touch that red one with 10K miles. That car has issues. To start, it doesn't have the original front bumper...

Having purchased one recently myself, I think your price range is right. Take your time, the right one will surface. Good luck!

Spoke to the dealership and they say it's the original bumper but had the license plate and I guess turn signals shaved to have a cleaner look. It also has a $20l Roberuta front lift system that lifts the car 3". Are there any other issues you are aware of ?

It's got a few more issues than that, but I'm not going to rain on anyone's parade.

All I can say is that Basalt Black, Guards Red and Fayence Yellow are the three rarest color for CGT. They typically command a premium over the generic silver. Adding an aftermarket suspension and drilling holes in the car, that's big negative in my opinion as it mess up the geometry of the CGT and CGT is known to be very sensitive to any kind of adjustment on the suspension setting.

Good Luck - would not worry about miles more how it was cared for during those miles.

Adding miles to a higher mileage CGT may also be less painful so you can enjoy.

CGT that has been sitting for too long it's going to do the same if and when you sell.

I know of two available - they are not advertised, both original owner cars with no stories and low mileage. No, I'm not a dealer. PM me and I'll get you some info.

This sounds right to me. I know a gentleman who has a guards red CGT and he drives it!
Trust me, I understand wanting to preserve value but there's no way I could stare at this car everyday and not want to frequently drive....good luck in the search

We all talking about the same red car on consignment at Empire Exotic for months? Best case it has license plate holes and front lift? Worst case it was wrecked?

It's a nice CGT in my town.

Good dealer only know of the one prior owner who barely drove it. He's a very good client of the dealer leads me to believe it has a good history.

I was in St Louis last week. Had some time to kill and went and saw the car at the dealership. Looked like a clean car for the 9,xxx miles.
