Both of these are being auctioned at NEC in November. There was an XL1 auctioned last year at the same event. This one has lower guide price as the interior doesn't have the best description. I'd much rather choose the Golf if I had to pick one of these.

I don't understand the attraction to the XL1 at all. Its small, weird, very expensive and its still a diesel!!

That's quite a few of the attractions. Can add rarity and revolutionary to it...and the fuel economy....hence green credentials.

This ^.

I love those XL1s - I just can't justify (to myself) the expense.

NEC Auction has some other interesting lots too . . .

Horses for courses and all that, but I would sooner have a Lupo 3L which does similar fuel economy and a flat :lol:

Or this....

To me the XL1's have that something...I have seen a lot of supercars being used on the road, but I have not yet seen a XL1 in the flesh, at a show, on the road, anywhere. I haven't gone looking, but then I haven't gone looking for the supercars.
I have TOP555 supercar dealer near me, so I see my fair share of pricey cars.

I'd pass on the Lambo, scrape a few more quid together and buy an XL1.

Or buy a few big yanks

Much as Iove supercars, they are not quite me.

Although I imagine the buyer wouldn’t be driving it, just storing it as it is.

The RHD Alfa Montreal is a rare beast. Would be £80k~£100k when finished. Although I suspect you’d need to pump £50k into a resto depending on how complete and/or rusty it is. :)

My guess is it will need both the fuel system and brake system going through - if they haven’t been sorted already.

That’s all I ever seem to do with my collection these days (along with replacement batteries.) :(
