this car is worth that £. just add up everything, the labor involved, the money for going to the track to get those records, all that prep for the first engine then the prep to fix any issues it had with the second.... did i mention the full transmission service upgrades and labor, paintwork.
sure the other systems cost 90k but that's not including transmission work for full trans build, price of the car. doesn't include a car that went around 250mph (they won't sell it until after that's achieved even if it takes 2 miles to do it) etc. that 90k is usd or eu price?

i get that's not for everyone. they will probably sell this to someone in the M.E. or some very rich guy that wants this quality build with its accomplishments already under its belt.
that's why people buy cars from Japan like the endless gtr that accomplished huge #'s.

Don't understand why they want to sell and start on a new project?

I would think its worth 90k in full honesty. Wouldn't buy it myself for 260k when I could near enough buy the new ferrari F12.

So your buying a car that needs to be painted, and a car that doesn't run,
Yes they have spent time and money on the car but they have not proven anything really, we already knew a car of this power and trans mods could do 200+
You could as it's already been said buy a 09 Gtr in a nice colour have a jun engine sent over upgrade the trans and still have enough money left to buy another 09 Gtr as a daily driver.
It is up to them what they try and sell it for, i hope they get what they want for it.

Sounds like you are just as deluded as they are! You don't get back development and labour time when selling modified cars. That said, they could be lucky, and if you don't ask....

To me it's more strange that it's to be sold to develop a new project?

Sounds like bullsh1t to me.

1. It's broken
2. It's not the fastest
3. Their custom revolves around the GTR. There's not enough difference between models so why start with a new car and do it all again?

The answer is probably because here's a chance they can sell it for £260k, in which case, makes commercial sense. It's more strange that there's been no official comment.

I'm not sure why they haven't commented. Been very quiet on here for a while.

It may need to be sold for quick cash for creditors? Who knows and only SVM can answer that question.

The other possibility is the fact they have fell out of love with the car? There was so much hype of it out performing ams that within less than a week or so ams took their car to another level. Sometimes this makes you disinterested in teething you have been working too.

I think we can be fairly sure that with the price at £260k they're not going. To get a quick sale (or any sale for that matter).

As most of us with older modified cars know, the only way u can come even close to getting your investment back is by breaking the car for parts and even then you fall way short

Yes true. It won't sell quick at that price.

Your right as I have never have got even 30% of the modification costs back. Best thing would be to break it like you said and they may get the price.

I think the truly odd thing is to put it up for sale before it has achieved any of the stated goals and before the final spec or condition can be guaranteed. Never seen that before.

Not having a go at SVM, but I have never seen any trader/business anywhere, conduct themselves in the strange manner that SVM did/do.

Nothing surprises me with their behaviour.

Kevan might want to buy a new garage/premises/house. And improve the set-up.

The speculation on this thread is funny. Who knows the reasons why, who really cares. I dont. I just know that the advertised price is comical to say the least.

Spot on Lawsy,

I don't know if it's just coincidence but since traders were banned from starting project threads they have been extremely quiet? I know Kevan has had personal issues to deal with but a business so prominent in R35 tuning I would have expected more representation than there has been

The project section has benefitted IMHO. More variety and enthusiasm. I hope people feel the same

Absolutely Mook :thumbsup:

I'm sure there are builds going on that we are no longer seeing but it's nice to see some more personal posts on what people are up to with their cars

I agree, they should have been putting all those threads in their own section.

The project section was so full of SVM ones where the owners were not even posting about their own cars that finding the real projects was quite difficult.

so we all think the price is a little oh the silly side, but what would be a fair/good price?
An example. An evo 9 that costs 150k + to build would sell for sub £50k, fresh build.

I see this GTR as a one trick pony, and ugly at that. It will break constantly, 100%.

100k max IMO, regardless of whats been done.

I'll take it... Ok I'll have 22" solid 24k gold wheels, with platinum nuts, I want the car painted in 24k gold paint, interior made of real snake skin and don't forget the furry dice with diamonds. When it's ready gimme a shout and I collect it.

On the price, it cost £200,000 to build the Jun super lemon back in the day and that went up for £50,000 and that was a good few years ago now.

svm's price is laughable for a car that's not even runningand never made up to it's own hype.
Falsely advertised as well.
