F Spider: Make me an offer
Arthur: I have to make some calculations
F Spider: No problem, send me an email with the offer
Arthur: *writing down all F Spider's wishes*

Never heard anything since (and yes, Arthur did have the correct email address).

Well...maybe they wanted to sell you a production model and not the prototype; and presumably as they're not going into production they now want to flog the prototype???

But its no more than a track-day car surely?

Cruising around the circuit made it overheat in the English weather. No way, you can push this car to the limit on a trackday

Looks like Arthur has 'completed' his new project:

I wanted to follow up with Arthur, to see where the quote was, but Hans and Tom convinced me not to do that and wait until -and if- Arthur would react. If he would do nothing without prodding, that would be an indication of how the whole process would go, and it would become a nightmare.

Also, he emailed me about the auction just two days before the event. Not giving the only person that was willing to buy his car a lot of notice
