Hello, you should first of all know that i live in Belgium.

I've seen a Robin Hood for sale.
The asking price is 9500 euro (8000 pounds)
Is this a fair asking price ?????

This is what i know about it:
Built in 2005,
15000 km (9000miles)
1.6 Pinto engine

Hope the links work...

Of it's not already correctly registered to use in Belgium it's far too expensive. Similar UK registered cars would cost half what that one is.

Not sure what registration in Belgium costs or how difficult it is but is it worth paying twice as much for?

Yes, it does sound expensive BUT it depends on the market in Belgium - are there any alternatives? If not and you want one badly, you have to pay what is being asked (haggle first, obviously 🙂 ).

What is the car market like generally in Belgium - more expensive than the UK? I visited Stockholm many years ago and cars there were all twice the price of the rest of the world because of the huge taxes on them.

Not only that it looks more like a 2b with sliding pillar suspension not an Exmo.

Hoeray for wikipedia as at first i had no idea what you said here 😀

This one was probably built in the UK and exported as a unique car, so not the Exmo series.
Sliding pillar suspension, first used in 1898 😲 , so.... is that a good thing or a not so good thing ?
( i understand double wishbones and McPherson suspensions but never heard of this one )

 

If you are interested in the European mainland prices,
this is the leading website for second hand (and new) cars for Belgium with quite an offering from the rest of Europe too.

Personally i use the Flemish version, but i can't get that in english, i suppose the cars listed are the same.

You can do a search on Caterham, Westfield, Lotus but not on "Robin Hood"
There is a workaround: simply do a google search for "autoscout24 robin hood"
and you should get the listings for Robin Hoods.
( check "Country" is set to Europe. )

I also found a dealer in Holland with a nice collection,
might save a bit more cash and get one of his Westfields.

If it is registered as an Exmo it could be not really a ‘legal’ car, perhaps someone swapped the registration of an earlier model to save them getting the car tested correctly here after being built. Known here as a ringer.
