    Oh, not mine, and I don't have any interest in its sale. Just posting FYI.

    Sad that after all the expense, the current owner could only total 1,000 km in his pride and joy. It was obviously not bought by him/her for enjoyment but to eventually induce other Citrophiles to pay big money.....

    And here I was thinking that converting a DSpecial to a Pallas was the worst thing you could do to a base model D...

    There's probably someone out there who thinks this 'patina' is amazing and will snap it up. There's always that one person. They may have already bought the rather unique white '62 ID 19

    With the exception of the hubcaps, I'd happily have this in my driveway for the money it will likely bring. Even at $20k it's a huge amount of car for the money, restoration done....and assuming it's a real D Super 5, it's rare.

    My own DS23ie has cost me nearly $15000 after purchase, rust and some mechanical work. I love her to bits and she looks half decent from 3 metres away. The closer you get, the more 'lines' you see....

    Does that price include a buyer's premium?

    This may also have been one of the first Shannons auctions with online bidding available.

    At least two (apparently) since the underbidder was prepared to pay almost the final price. Could even be several, depending on how the auction ended.

    It was certainly well presented and the customising is well executed. Spending money on cosmetics almost always gives a better return compared to mechanical work.

    I think it's a great thing.

    It means the cars are finally becoming worth spending money on, and that can only mean good things.

    More will be saved, more will grace our roads for years to come and those of us lucky enough to already own one will be able to easier justify doing things properly and accept the associated costs.

    Let's just hope it permeates the entire ownership chain and promotes some growth in maintainers and suppliers in Australia. With the increased value in the cars, and my previously mentioned points, let's hope we see some more successful, clean, professional and passionate businesses riding the wave of DS value increase.

    I'm sure not everyone agrees..

    Its like house prices, you buy in when you can afford to and needs dictate. Its a zero sum game unless you sell out altogether. Its shows growth in the market which can only be a good thing. When will this happen to the Renaults?!

    Shannons do not have a buyers premium, only sellers fees.

    It would be nice to think that the market has realised the true value of the DS, I suspect it's not the case, unfortunately. At the very least, on this occasion it seems the seller done done well. Perhaps Shannons is a better bet than ebay?

    I'm not so sure. The values in Europe are considerably higher.. Only a matter of time until the demand, global or local, pushes up the price of our essentially well-preserved examples.

    The price for the D will peak higher in the coming years, I'm sure; though it's all bound to fall like a house of cards as very few aspirant D owners are born after 1970.

    The interest simply isn't there and I'm happy to be corrected on this point. When I had time to attend club events, I was the youngest D owner by a long shot and as I approach 40, I can't think of many folks my age (or younger) who own one.

    That's right... Tractions will be cheaper, too!

    BVM D's with be worth nothing - ID's with manual steering even less!

    I don't think people have lost interest in the DS, classic cars continue to appreciate, and the DS will certainly track the market, if not outperform it. Personally if I could afford a 1930's Delage I'd be all over them, just need to find $250k to spend on a car. If this auction has proven anything, it's that people come into the market all the time, some do research, some don't.
