I recall the C4 forum members liked to list the numbers of their C4 coupes limited edition, named after the rally driver (so memorable, I have forgotten it!), and these were numbered, but also a limited edition, so not many about.I would hope there will be a shed load of Pro Cee'd Gt's about before long, as they are a really remarkable car (the Kia salesman who lives on my estate has a red demo one parked at his house).
Mines a '67 - I get 25 to 35 mpg depending on the drive. Not the most economical of cars - but i've had worse - V6 Omega 15mpgHi Guys
New Pro Ceed GT 1st edition owner here, bought the car last week from a dealer near me who bought it new from the Newcastle Kia dealership, it's 009 of 500 will post pics soon.
As all of us I absolutely love the car from the aesthetics to the comfort and obviously the speed!. I wouldn't even be surprised if mine had the lowest mileage of all uk 50 models out there, I bought it at approximately 2750 miles just after it's first yearly service which was carried out at 2600 miles.
HoweverI seem to have 1 major gripe the MPG, or maybe lack of it! I did check all the figures prior to buying and fully understood what I was letting myself in for, however reading figures and reality are different experiences. The trip computer currently displays between 27-30 obviously fluctuating and I have not drove many miles since resetting the meter, would be interesting to hear some other driver experiences on this matter?. I put £30 in and it has barely lasted me 4 days, most of our miles are urban town driving.
Anyways share your experiences please guys
It’s the fact they only made 500 of them. They are very rareI don't want to offend anyone, but what is it these days with 1st editions, and them being so sought after
1st Editions never used to be a "thing", it seems to be another marketing gimick to inflate 2nd hand car values
I almost always look for a few year old models of cars (usually a facelift version if available), so that all the kinks and faults have already been found out by the manufacturer and fixed in later released models, it just seems to be some sort of scam run by the car compaines to make the first (possibly faulty) cars become more sought after
And on't even get me started on VW Golf "Editions" and the like.................. what a load of old
Go on, call me a cynic
So it's just as I suspected then, a marketing gimmick, no different to any other GT model, other than it's got a numberIt’s the fact they only made 500 of them. They are very rare
Of course it makes it more desirable. If something has a limited number ofSo it's just as I suspected then, a marketing gimmick, no different to any other GT model, other than it's got a number
It would be even rarer if there were only 50 first editions, would that make it worth more?
Just because something is rare, doesn't necessarily make it any more desirable
Is the spec of the first edition any different to the sebsequent models then (other than having a number from 0-500)Of course it makes it more desirable. If something has a limited number of
Units available then demand would be higher. It helps also that it’s a beautiful car and an absolute joy to drive
It's amazing what you can find on the internet if you try hard enough - black mirriors, different wheels and I wish I had a sunfroof and the lighting in the sills and footwells.Is the spec of the first edition any different to the sebsequent models then (other than having a number from 0-500)
If it dioesn indeed have something the refular GT/GT Tech doesn't have, then i will conceed it is more desirable, if it is just a plaque then my argument still stands
Any anyway, my car is as unique as yours, mine is build number 46740*, there are no others with that build number, so that makes mine just as unique
* it's not really that build number, but hopefully you get my point, every car is an individual
Ok, so it's got a few optional extras as standard (most of the above is available to buy as an optional extra, and still are available, with the exception of the sunroof)It's amazing what you can find on the internet if you try hard enough - black mirriors, different wheels and I wish I had a sunfroof and the lighting in the sills and footwells.
