Update 3/18/11: Hyman has added a price to their website. $175,000! Yes, that’s right. SS’s are now officially in the big leagues.
Update 3/10/11: Okay so this is the same car as market 283 -I thought so but wasn’t totally sure. I guess It’s probably more like $100K.
Giulia SS (anyone know the number?). Andy let me know that Hyman Ltd. has this very well groomed car on offer right now for probably between $60,000 and $80,000. I don’t know if I quite agree with the sellers assertion that a Sprint Speciale is a car it takes an Italian to appreciate. I think everyone would appreciate an SS, for the fact that such an outlandish car was ever built if nothing else -whether they like its looks or not.
A nice example in the currently unpopular (because 10 years ago they all had to be) red. Stance, shut lines, trim, glass -all look great. Buy and enjoy, or invest and sit on it, either way you end up with a cool car. Word to the investor: use it occasionally. Alfa made cars whose true beauty is felt from the drivers seat rather than shining on the grass in a public park, and driving is maintenance.
SS’s of the high dollar variety seem to be well represented this season with several in auctions and available around the net. Buy while you still can or wait for the frenzy to settle? You decide.
