So I drove down to Southampton to look at the F1 colours Twizy I posted about last week.
It is a regular used car dealers and not a Renault dealership.
Despite ringing ahead, the car was in the showroom with no chance of it getting out for a test drive.
It took 10 mins for the sole salesman to come and see me (nobody else in the showroom at this point).
Tells me he didn’t even know it had come in and that it was a special edition and had been chipped so was faster.
I asked for details but he was unable to tell me any more. He had rung the owner earlier who had told him this but he wasn’t willing to speak to me as it was his day off.
The salesman googled Renault F1 Twizy and got up the one with KARS that Vettal drove with all the body kit and said that was it (it clearly wasn’t).
Came into price and was told that £6k is the price as they have only had it a few days, I told him he will have it quite a few if they keep it st that and showed him a number of similar younger cars which are under £5k to which he told me again that it’s a special edition.
So I left my details for the owner to be calling me tomorrow but not expediting much.
From a condition point of view, it had some scratches on the plastic down by the front of the door and also scratches in both doors which looked like the back of the handle is catching, is this a common problem.
So 2hrs left to get home and stopped for a coffee and rant!
