Even though a Gen2 euro, a 215hp 9:1 420 still seems pedestrian compared to the 500/560 alternative.

But it is a 420SEC that you don't hear of or see everyday.

The problem is rare doesn't always translate to selling for more money on these cars. I'll bet it'll barely sell for much over a standard 560 SEC. Also, I would bet the higher reserve will most likely scare off most buyers. He should have had a lower starting bid and let the market seek it's level.

I had a super rare Gen 2 SEC and I was dumbfounded why it wasn't worth a small fortune. It wasn't unfortunately.
