The other thing to remember is that even though who like to drive fast cars are often the same people who want to make their fast car faster.
They like to be the ones taking the car from stock to fastarrr.
Of course there are some exceptions to this.
If Perrin themselves built up a car, then yes they're a well known group and their car could fetch a premium.
Unknown entities tend to lower the price as the quality and abuse to the car isn't always known.
That said, I've only heard good things about the VF52, but then it makes me wonder, why did he swap out the turbo so early? Did it go bad earlier? Why did it go bad?
