Another Cosmo Lost to Europe :(
« on: August 30, 2011, 12:51:19 PM »
was doing a bit of a trawl around the net last night and come across an original Mazda Cosmo, the great grandaddy of Rotaries on a classic car sale site... there was no price but i had to mail them out of interest.

looks really clean.

I was a little devastated with the reply.

Good Morning,
Thank you for email.
Sorry, the Mazda is now reserved for a  gentleman in Switzerland.
Have a nice day.

Kind Regards

damn swiss bankers lol, please someone phone then and outbid whatever this swiss guy has offered. no way i could afford one of these for the foreseeable future but it pains me to see such a rare car leave the country.

I emailed him about this car a couple of weeks ago.
£35,950 delivered.
When I contacted him he had already had 48 people contact him and had rejected 2 offers.

I\'ve had the pleasure of seeing this car and it\'s other white companion in the flesh side by side - amazing - both cars in very good condition.
 
I believe that leaves only 2 in the country now :eek

When I saw this I couldn\'t work out which U.K. Cosmo this could be, as I thought I knew all of them. Looking at the pictures it is in a very stereotypical looking japanese garage, also the boxes at the back have japanese writing on them. Anyway i\'ve just phoned the dealer who\'s a very nice chap and had quite a long chat. It is indeed a japanese car, which belonged to a japanese friend of his fathers. So it\'s been sold to a collector of Japanese cars in Switzerland and will be shipped from Japan to there. So we haven\'t lost one after all:Thumbs-up So that leaves 4 in the U.K. that I know about. I have two (one good one bad) Carl Hayward has one (unless he\'s sold it?) and there\'s a lady that owns one.

Carl will never sell that car, it\'s too unique to sell and no one this country has the ££££ to buy it.

How much are we talking? And what condition is it in?
