Used R35 prices?

Hi folks

Brother is looking for a fairly recent R35 (up to maybe 18 months old). Been on Autotrader etc and just cant get my head around some prices of 63 plates? - 60k odd. I reckon dealers are marking 5-7k from some trade ins or private buys that they go on the forecourt - maybe they reduce that by 1k or so to end punter. Seen one of these recently.

My question is, are buyers out there paying this sort of cash - nearly 60k odd for low mileage 63 plate - even 63k odd for 64 plates?? My 64 plate wasn't much more than that over 14 months ago with 1000 miles!

I know there is one thing about asking price and another about selling it at that. They seem to stay for sale for a while.

Doesn't seem to be too many 1000 miler/3 month old ones out there recently either coming from dealers out of demonstration - if I got a deal like mine again for an ex demo 65 or 16 plate I'd nearly think of going again given the relatively low annual cost of owning such a savage yock (based on what I reckon I'd get for mine private sale)!

Thoughts?

Prices are there because the older ones are holding so well.

If an 11 plate is around £45-50k a 2 or 3 year newer one has to be worth that much more.
It does mean that quite often you are paying almost new price. (can get one for 72-74k new discounted)

Personally if a 63/14 plate is low 60k I'd rather pay 12-14k more for a new one.
At least the residuals look very good.

Only issues is, nobody knows how the R36 coming out will effect them, if you are planning to keep it 3 years.

also depends how much the R36 will be, rumoured 2020 release and 125k+, and 800bhp ha ha

We shall see, either way I reckon it's gonna be a beast! Hypercar killer...........

True.
Personally I think the Nismo was a way to test the water and see if people will buy a £125k Nissan.

Seems they will.
Low volume might be the order of the day IF it's that good/expensive.

yeah, I personally think they will sell well, IF 800bhp++ out the box and it will tickle the hyper cars.

Prices have been strong on newer cars for over a year now, as said all bolstered by the early cars not dropping.

It's impossible to find a 15 plate for mid 60's (where at a year old they used to be) but rather more like high 60's.

Have seen a couple ex demo's for 69/70/71 too.

64 plates still around 63/64k.

Do they sell for that? Yes I believe they do, it's the new norm, although not many cars seem to have shifted over the winter, it's always the same ones at the same prices still being advertised. They should start shifting now spring's here and the sap is rising.

The older cars are holding there prices very well,good for the sellers but a setback for the buyers IMO
