    What to expect to pay for an 2017 Ariel Atom 3S

    I have a local seller possibly wanting to sell his 3S with 8K miles. What would be a fair price? What would you consider a steal?

    Thanks!

    options (wings are a 5k option even after you buy one)
    what area or city
    miles
    color (it matters as a purple one is still for sale and will be for a long time)

    Plus, atoms are like houseboats: when you find a buyer, be open to negotiations and don’t let them go because there aren’t many buyers. The ‘right’ buyer may take a while. Atoms tend to sell below what we, as owners, think they are worth. It isn’t that resale sucks. But there aren’t a lot of buyers. If you are ‘testing the waters’, don’t expect to see people begging to pay a ton for your car.

    That being said, prices are so all over the board i would look at recent sales and time on market and then come up with your comfortable price. If you love the car, paying 5-10k +/- really isn’t going to make a difference.

    8k miles, I am keeping the color and area secret because it is not the purple one, its the color I want.

    As a single 33M I fucking want this car!

    This Atom probably wont interest as many folks as its a 3 and not a 3S. its missing the turbo so i woyldnt even consider buying it at all but if i had to pick a number it would be 60k as it isnt turboed but others may not care as much.
    ive seen 2-3 3S models with low mileage for 70k and still sitting for sale.

    good luck
