Saw that and went ooooohhhhh!

The bit about the roof worries me a little.

I recall another black riviera Eclat for sale last year with roof problems - not sure it’s the same one

The seller reckons it could do with a repaint at some point. They either have very high standards, or the photos are lying, it looks pretty damned good to me!

That’s the problem with photos and paint. It may look great in a photo from 10’, but could still be covered in micro blister or have other problems that would need a full respray to fix.

Not convinced it sold. Price never seemed to move.
This cars been looking for a long term owner for at least 5 years. Was in an auction back in 2019 but didn't sell, then was trying to be sold mid last year for around the £8.5 k. I think it sold as log book shows last issue mid last year.
What goes together.... Must come apart.

It does say the listing was ended by the seller as the item is no longer available.
What car is that?
