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.
