Okay, it looks like the time is approaching to sell my beautiful Ghibli to help fund a move to France. I said I would let you guys know and it might help to get your view-point on price etc. as there is a good chance it may go back to Europe being a left-hand-drive model.

I haven't advertised it yet but I'll probably stick it on Enrico's and the Maserati Club UK sites.

I'm thinking £65k sterling. What do you reckon? I know it's hard to get a real impression of the car without seeing it. You can read my previous post on the car here viewtopic.php?f=22&t=223

Here is a list of the work done over the last 3 years. It just passed its UK MOT test again last week.

O my... I'll be buying some lottery tickets first thing tomorrow! @!#$

Seriously, a tragedy to sell such a car. I hope she finds a new loving home soon.
