While I am aware of other slot cars having sold for more, this is possibly the highest price yet paid for one of the elusive Scalextric Bugatti T59...

For that kind of money, I would expect free shipping, not another $200!

I didn't think about insurance. You're most likely correct.

For that kind of money I would expect it to be new in box, not used.

Allan, 

Is that the one that's been up on ebay for at least a couple months, at a Buy it Now price? 

 

I will believe that really sold for that price when I see it...

Thanks Don I spoke with one of the committee of the NSCC club and he thought it had sold for half of that money!
