Used for the wedding of Arkan & Ceca, there might still be some 7.62 shells stuck in the overmats... :roll:
Ironically, the car's for sale in the same town where he served his first jail sentence.

Would the 'celebrity ownership' explain the [cough] ambitious [cough] price tag of 121K Euro? :o

That is very interesting Pim – I did not know that!

The campaign “Jaguar – it’s good to be bad” makes in this case totally sense ;) (one of my favorite commercials)

I cheated: the advert mentioned it was their wedding car, all it took from there was one Google search... ;)

There is second Majestic for sale in Switzerland, with only 842 km on the clock - but more numbers in the price tag:

Indeed so, quite understandably (maybe), ouch. :shock:

Given how few V12 LHD Majestics were produced, very high chance that this one is in the best condition of all of them that survived. I'm quite curious to see if it goes for anything above 50k€ :)

Rarity and low mileage are nice selling points, but there’s some very stiff competition at this price point for a classic car.
I think this car can only ever go to a museum. It will never see this road at that price/ mileage.
Maybe JH?

I was calling the garage owner who is selling this car – because I would like to take some pictures of this car. He told me that a collector somewhere in Europe seems to be interested in this car. But it in any case the market / target group for this car with this price tag is definitely very small. Maybe I should start playing lottery...

Seems to be interested and actually buying, are two totally different things.
That’s great if you can go and have a look anyhow.
