Asking $35K? This guy must be smoking the funny weed.

At Cars and Coffee yesterday morning I saw a much better value for money. I'm not a big Mercedes fan, but this one caught my eye. Immaculate inside and out. $30K for a 600+ HP CL-65 AMG V-12 Bi-turbo.

Price doesn't seem to be out of line when compared to some of the 09/10 coupes being currently advertised, along w/it being one year only color. I don't think the car itself is what is being sold as much as what it represents a symbol of the final gasp of a 84 year old marque last attempt for survival.

If you also consider that it is the ONLY 2010 Convertible GXP Heritage Edition.

With 18,000 miles, it is overpriced, but that is just my opinion. :dunno:

Don't fall for the seller's line about, "This is next to last Solstice built in 2010 before shutting down Pontiac Production." The car was built on 5/28/2009 and the plant didn't stop production until mid-July, 2009. At least 500+ Solstices were made after this one was produced.

I agree it is overpriced. Especially with the statement that there is pass seat minor damage and no pics of it.

If this car was built 5/28/09 and 500 more were produced; why were there only supposedly 12 2010s built. Are you saying that there were 500 2009 made after this 2010? or are there a bunch of 2010s out there?

Every year, there are some pre-production cars built (next model year) alongside the regular production for the current model year. Between 4/21/09 and 5/28/09, Wilmington built 12 Solstice Coupes, 8 Solstice Convertibles, 8 Saturn Skys and 2 Opel GTs, all 2010 specification, alongside the regular 2009 production.

The normal cutover to 2010 production would normally have occurred in late June, 2009, but it never happened, due to the shutdown of Pontiac and Saturn. Instead, they finished the build out of the 2009 Coupes and some convertibles where there were accepted orders at the plant for the cars.

So, in short, yes, there were more than 500 2009 coupes and convertibles that were made after 5/28/2009 which was the date of the last 2010 pilot build.

See this thread for a good description of the process:

I'm not saying I would pay it (unless I had really deep pockets). I'm saying the sellers is attempting to justify the price by marketing it as a collectible. The miles is what's hurting that tactic. But I believe it being a 2010 qualifies it to be priced higher than a comparable 07-09 GXP with the same mileage/condition.
