How hard is it to sell a Mk2 GT?

Yesterday I was driving past my local FPV dealer and in the front was a M2 GT in shockwave with white stripes and the bonnet decal.
It caught my eye so I stopped to have a look.

Too late, it was sold. It had been unloaded off the truck Saturday morning and stored near the front of the lot until it was cleaned up for display.
Someone else saw it and bought it on the spot.

Didn't even get a chance to sit in it as it was "sold" so therefore off limits.

And it looked like a GT should, raw and hard. Can't wait to see a GT-P Mk2. Hope they get one in Velocity with black stripes.
Sorry, no pics as it has already gone.

We all want them to be as popular as possible. That is the best way for all of our resales to be as high as possible, not that I am remotely thinking of selling mine.

Re: How hard is it to sell a Mk2 GT?

the new stripes with the two different thickness stripes looks way better than the old ones. I would've bought the series 1 without stripes but now i wouldn't be so sure as which way to go.
Not that i intend on buying one, i wish i was but...

If you own a series 1 and you drive a series 2? One of two things will happen.

1. You will have to buy and that costs money
or
2. You will have to visit your GP for a prescription for Prozac or Zoloft, because if you can't own it? YOU WILL BE DEPRESSED.

So doc, even though there is no stated power increase etc you would rate it as a worthwhile improvement/upgrade?
