Luego V8 Viento possibly for sale
DanP - 17/4/19 at 08:30 PM

Testing the water really, my Viento just does not get enough use (wife and 2 young children means I want something with more seats for my fun car) and I would rather it went to a home where it was appreciated.

Price-wise I am open to offers, but I'm not desperate to sell at this point. Please feel free to U2U me with any questions or if you want more photos. I have more photos but can't seem to upload them right now.

Did this ever go up for sale?
Did it sell?

Iíve had such a hectic summer I havenít had the chance, it now has a fresh MOT though and I was planning on sorting the adverts in October as Iíll have some time off.

Let me know if you are interested.

Hi Dan,

I am interested, i've got to be completely honest though,
i have no idea what a car like yours would be worth?

I have specifically looking for a V8 Viento though due to being a larger chap and my research tells me the Viento is the way to go!

I guess many people would say something is only worth what someone will pay for it. There is also the cost of building one too that has a bearing.

As I said above, Iíd like to get 9K as this is not atypical for a V8 Viento but Iím open to offers.

Iíll U2U my phone number over if you want to have a chat.
