Oh oh ... that opens opportunities to bringing back some LHD Scimitars over here 8)
NB. the Sabre has the Nissan 1800 turbo engine and seems to be a one owner car - or at least one family :wink: -
If the milage is genuine, that could be a nice lead :D
It may just be difficult to get registered in France - too young for the RTI path to registration :cry: -
Cheers,
Fred

The light blue 6b (?) is a dead ringer for Mike's?

Funny... or rather strange: when you go to the Sabre's add on autoscout, it says "le foto allegate sono di vetture praticamente identiche" - the attached photos are of nearly identical cars??? Also says: Puissance 73 kW (99 Ch) - with a Nissan Turbo? And: 5000€ ...

The 25k€ SE6 was listed a while ago and (as far as I can remember) had a rather impressive (at least on the photoes) rework done including a completely renewed interior. Still, quite a lot of money...

I've just noticed the expensive one is marked 1971 and has done just 10 km 8)

I am surprised the Sabre is so cheap compared to the GTE's - the opposite would be the case in the UK

All now sold, apparently!
I followed up the expensive one and the garage (Range Rover specialists) confirm it.
I don't know at what price, but presumably somewhere near the 25 000 euros asked.
Well done!

Just on my way to Venice - perhaps I should have driven over in a nice GTE? :-)

Can't see any further pics on the ad page. But the small image on here is of a mk1.5. So more likely a 1400cvh.

The ad said it was a turbo.

Perhaps Mario Amico's car has an aluminium superleggera body?

Perhaps it has an Aston Martin engine?
The straight six should fit, the V8 would be a bit tight and the V12 you would have to put in the boot.
Pretty cheap for an Aston ...
