Totally agree!
For a car in this condition about 130k Euro is very very high.
But its worth, its one of the famous 355 Challenge Legends, winning a lot!

Nevertheless, what I have noticed is:
Gaps of the body are horrible
Rear window is not genuine, also side windows
Front hood aftermarket carbon, 5000€ for original one
Doors are carbon with lexan windows, original door complete is 3000
Original rear screen is 2500€
Rear bumper seems not original, 2500€
Suspension is not original, sure, 4000€
Muffler and Y-pipe not original, 2500€
Challenge grill is damaged 1000€
Undertray?????
Seats and belts not original, not possible to get
Dashboard and center console are horrible GT style, 3500€
Steering wheel not original 300€
Main battery switch and electric missing 500€
Tow hooks not original 500€

Car needs also engine service and body restoration!!!
Engine not original, what about the gearbox?

Don't misunderstand me, I like the car, but hell much work and money, but one of
those great Legends!!!!

Hi Shane,

Thanks for your thoughts, you have examined the car very carefully!

Have you been in Paris? Did you try to get the car?

I totally agree with your explanations, but what is in 5...10 years?

The only small gap to the very successful 430 CH tells me that the 355 Challenge are something special!

I am so happy with my 355 Challenge, it was so much luck finding my car last week in Italy!

Welcome on board ;-)

The history of the car is really good. I am sure after a lit of work you will have a big car.

Should be no problem to get Infos.
