The purple probably started like as being 'not quite black but as close as we can get hold of' and then faded a bit over the years. It's cool as fuck, and I really don't think it counts as a Jobbo interior because I can't imagine anyone not coveting it absolutely. I'm certainly not unhappy to be associated with it; I just don't think I'm sufficiently worthy!

That W123 AMG estate is just glorious. I wonder when it was converted to an AMG? The Pentas are period correct but the seats look more mid-late 80s. I'm annoyed at Ste posting it because I'm really going to have to look through the rest of the auction as well now :lol:

That's one of the best replies I've ever seen 8-)

Go through the whole catalogue, it's glorious.

That's my kind of sale, I want it all.

The Alpina 8 series is the first car I've seen that I like on those multi spoke wheels, the 850 on throwing stars still looks better though.

I count Jobbo interior basic requirements as:

- unconventional coloured seats
- wood trim
- Black steering wheel

Wasn’t this based on a green leather 5 series you had once apon a time?

I've been through it now. Some lovely stuff; there's a similar age Alpina B9 with what I thought were the same seats but in unfaded state - but now I've studied them a bit more, perhaps the B7 Turbo seats are intended to be that colour. Even better 8-)

ETA: yes, it was from the E34 I had with gorgeous green extended leather trim.

My other faves (though the AMG estate is the best):
VW Thing - https://rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/az19 ... ing/726462
RS200 Evo - https://rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/az19 ... ion/733582
Corvette C4 ZR1 - https://rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/fl19 ... zr1/733367 (always had a thing for these ever since Performance Car's cover story in May 1989 with Carcassonne in the background)

Interesting (to me) - that RS200 hasn't got the little transfer-box 2WD / 4WD lever that some have. I thought they all had it:
