I noticed this on carandclassic. Does anyone know the car? It seems very well priced to me just based on pics. Any thoughts,etc? I ask as I'm very tempted Many thanks.

The price of the car seems very good considering good s1s go for anything over £40 000. The main questions are "why are there no photos of the interior?" and "what is an offer over £25 000?". The owner may want a lot more for the car than is stated. No harm in going to look at it, looks tidy and seems to have been around a bit.
I hope that helps you out.
Best regards, P

Thank you both.
Yes a scalino is a sort of "little staircase". I do fancy an early elan..I very stupidly didnt buy a lovely s2 a couple of years back. Bought a 7 s2 instead.
