Peder Karlsson: Well, my gray Lamborghini was hard to sell … – Chronicles

“If you see me in Sandhamn on the flybridge on a boat, you know that the trick has worked.”

… Then I will probably sell my white instead!

This is a chronicle. This means that the content is the writer’s own opinion.

A couple of weeks ago it was decided that it was time to get rid of the Aventador.

The boating season was approaching and I do not want and can not have both a pig expensive car and a pig expensive boat, and just then the boat felt most important, I have other cars to ride in. Plus I began to remember the reasons why I promised myself that never buy a two-seater car again. I can not really get past the ego thing with a two-seater car when you have children.

“Now Daddy’s going out and driving in the nice car corner, so now you can stay at home.” A bit like a golfer who leaves for a small round of golf at ten o’clock on Saturday morning and comes home again just in time for his wife to have dinner in the evening. Then he has to rest a bit too because he has been running all day.

No, I like to use my stuff and a two-seater in all its glory, but it reduces the possibilities of use quite a bit. I have all my cars as utility vehicles, regardless of whether it says Volvo, Ferrari, or Lamborghini in the grill and I have never taken a Sunday trip just to drive. But if I’m going somewhere, I want to be able to ride in the car I want, and it’s not always possible with one.

Said and done, it was refurbished and went on sale. But now after a couple of weeks it is still not sold. Of course, nothing unusual considering that it is an extremely expensive car, used cars for almost three million do not fly out of the halls directly, but the sales process takes a little longer. When I shop myself, the exception is that confirms the rule, then it happens on the phone unseen, on pure impulse. I need to get better at controlling that …

However, my ADHD makes it very difficult when nothing happens in five minutes. I’m looking for reasons why it’s not sold. Is that the wrong price? No, it is completely priced, best equipped, lowest mile, everything is in place. I also make a nice loss so the buyer can be happy.

Is it with the wrong dealer? No, it is from a cruel dealer, I have both bought lots of cars and sold through them and have one hundred percent confidence in them. But why is it not sold then ?! I’m going crazy! I will buy a boat and have time to use it before the summer ends!

Then there was some wise person who said something that I heard before and that I know is true but that for the life of me I can not understand why.

Sometimes cars for sale need environmental changes. A car that has been for sale for six months at a dealer is sold in three days at a new one, at the same price. Car dealers often exchange cars with each other for this very reason. But how is that possible? Are some customers just looking at what a specific trader has? I can not imagine that. I do not understand. Can anyone explain it to me, I will be very happy.

Anyway. It was decided that the car would go to a new dealer for a try. What normally happens after six months happened in my case after a couple of weeks. Then came the next flash of genius. The car is foiled. Shitty, of course, but if you remove the foil, is it a brand new car? It must be good, right?

Said and done for the second time. Today, the car goes on sale again, at a new dealer with a new color. As if it had never been for sale before. If I can not sell my gray Lambo, I may well try to sell my white. Do not tell anyone just because then the effect of the brilliant idea may diminish.

If you see me in Sandhamn on the flybridge on a boat, you know that the trick has worked. If you see me instead outside Ica, in a white, carbon fiber bombed Lamborghini Aventador, you can laugh a little at the guy who thought he was smart.
