The bespokeoc kit in real carbon fiber is very nice. And very expensive... But that's relative. Let's see how the sale goes next week

How much is the carbon fiber kit ?
Everyone has said the $1500 duraflex kit will need $5000+ in body shop labor. To fix its flaws

i shouldnt say its a kit.

bespoke says their cost is about 25 in the R and D etc and production of it. so yeah its pricey because its well bespoke and your not gonna find anyone else doing it..afaik

suppose he can sell it for whatever he wants

in regards to fitment. its custom made for the car, ive seen the car in person, it looks and fits great

So, the last widebody discussion about Mark's car on eBay, a member posted that Mark would never get that price because it was not original @ $160k. Above is a complete tribute car, admittedly with a fantastic interior, and it sells for $230k. I'd take Mark's car and buy a used AMG GT with the extra cash....

so the question is why hasnt his sold....im sure people are sending him low ball offers and who know who actually purchased Arbor's car at scottdale...but at russo and steele im sure there were a bunch of crazies who threw some money around

Bespoke has a few more of these in the works, hopefully ill get a chance to go down and have a look

ebay is not the right sales value for a highend car . Mark should put his car in one of the high end auctions if he wants. Dudes with money to see it

What's astonishing about the price is that the Russo-and-Steele auctioned Wide Body retains the stock engine, restored with many new parts.

Here's the article about the car from the Robb Report:


I see a similarity between this Wide Body SEC and a Singer Porsche. There will be a few conversions annually being done for those with deep pockets and Bespoke has for sure carved a niche.

For the rest of us with aging SEC's, we'll be supplying them with donor cars. Hey, even a rusted and beaten 964 could easily fetch $20k or more. Hang in there.

The good news is for us AMG owners with original engine mods really makes our cars worth so much more! Definitely worth a restoration and a great investment, at least that's what I tell the wife.

arbor charges whatever he wants because he can....and the auction showed that atleast there is someone out there to buy it...

yes excellent for real amg cars, and our cars in general....we should all be happy when these cars in whatever form sell well.....even if we are never gonna sell....like me....atleast with my SEL
