New build, loadsa money, just 400 miles and it's for sale. Not what he expected?
[www.ebay.com]

Pretty minimal lights. Maybe not intended to be driven after dark.
Or, apparently, when it's wet.
Nor, as there seems to be no heater, when it's cold.
Not terribly practical then.

Tidy under the bonnet, and the boot is nicely trimmed, plus a quality leather interior, although personally I could do without the shiny metal dash.
But a non-overdrive gearbox. Hmmm.
Wonder what rear end it has.

Ivor

edit; seller 'doesn't know' what rear end it has. Appears it may have standard brakes. No heater.

Maybe. Depending on reserve.
But with what may be a standard rear end, no overdrive and a standard tank, it'll be what you might call a Frequent Filler.

It made $28,100 but the reserve was higher.
Don't see the attraction, but you were right, and it should have sold.
