E31 B12 5.7

Post by Norrie » Fri Sep 23, 2022 1:40 pm

I had a message from Sytner Nottingham saying a potential purchaser had enquired of them to buy a B12 5.7 E31. Now what are the chances of that in respect of success.

And 15 of them have never been spotted in the wild, so haven't been added to the Archive. :lol:

Of the few that seem to've been in the UK at one time or another, best I can tell two may still be here: #013 which was an ex-Sultan of Brunei car and #047 that is Baggio's project. Neither have passed an MOT in a while though, 5yrs & 16yrs respectively.
B3 3.2 TOURING #062

I guess Sytner have a fiduciary responsibility to entertain these kind of enquiries? However one wonders if it is some rich collector or enthusiast or some one who is dreaming of ownership. But I think they have small success of find one in 2022?
