I never understand the big desire and premium for zero mileage cars vs low mileage. I understand a discount for a car with 30,000 miles, but this new fad for zero mile cars is nuts IMHO. Besides the fact they actually do need to be driven, when you look at cars a bit older, such as 1950-60s, most folks don't care about mileage. At major concours, such as Amelia, no one asks if your 1950s Gullwing or your 1960s Ferrari 275 are original color or how many miles on it. At some point, mileage not too significant.

Actual zero mileage cars have the appeal that no-one else has had a chance to drive it badly but this one has done 134 miles and for all the buyer knows it's previous two owners might have wanted to experience its performance and redlined it with no running in. If they knew they would be selling they might not even have bothered warming it up. But after paying such a crazy premium for super low miles the new buyer sadly won't be driving it either so maybe he doesn't care.

FLGT, why did you sell the Carrera GT?

i drive my cars
some do not but that is fine
some like to be on top
some like to be on bottom
some like it rough
some like it soft
some do it in the dark
some need to have lights on

do what YOU like
and stop worrying about what OTHERS do

i tell my 8 year old "only worry about yourself, if others want to jump off the bridge, dont stop him but dont push him. its' not you jumping off. dont worry"
