    MY PROJECTS : BENTLEY, RANGE ROVER & MORE......

    Well, I just bought a 2005 W12 Phaeton with 440 Bhp for 20 Grand, Black on Black from this dealer who wanted to get rid of it.
    I am looking for a Bentley Continental Flying Spur Kit to be fitted on this thing, like those guys do it for the Lincoln TownCar and the BMW E38 7 - Series.

    Anyone got any info ?



    I also am getting a P38A Range Rover to be converted into an MK3, which will be a steal as the P38s are available from 4-5K onwards.

    The site is www.rangeover.co.uk

    I talked to the guy there and we are working out shipping into the USA.

    Where did you find the dealer? any links to similar deals?

    I will let you know as soon as he has another car available.
    The guy is some one whom I know and picks up perfectly fine cars from auctions.
    He does not wish to be contacted at the moment though.

    I checked autotrader and you can get one for 35K$ after some negotiation maybe 30K$, so 20K$ from an auction is do-able.

    It was never a very desired car. It didn't sell well, hence its short run....People don't equate VW (the peoples car) to Luxury, thats why the germans made Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Porsche, Audi, etc.

    I work in wholesale cars out here in California, and I just blue booked that car and unless it has really high miles it still books for almost $50k wholesale. So if he really got it for $20k, he just made at least $15k in profit if he wants to sell it.

    Not to split hairs but neither one of those cars you have listed are W12's. The W12 makes the car much more valuable. So at $20k you stole it, congrats on the great deal.

    The Los Angeles area...you?

    I think your conversion, if done right would be a great move on this car.

    like i said in my previous post the reason it didnt sell was that VW couldnt demand the price...

    slap a Bentley kit on it and suddenly people take notice...maybe...you will win at car shows with it, thats for damn sure...

    Most Definitely - And the best part is that I was shocked to find so many Phaeton parts on the actual Bentley Conti !!!


    Im from the New York City/Long Island Area - but I am in or around Europe a lot.
