Not really? If you have saved £30k then you are the careful investing / saving type. Those that are happy throwing the cash away tend not to lay down the cash in a lump but effectively rent the vehicle, pcp/ lease. Now if all that's making the vehicle worth the premium is the exceptionally low mileage and condition then the depreciation is going to be fairly steep if you start using it too much. Here in lies the problem as far as I can see.....as the type that is happy burning the cash will struggle to finance the purchase outright and can't get the rental deal. Those with the cash are less likely to want to lose it as they saved it in the first place......so unless they want a garage queen to look at..... Clearly this only narrows the market as there is always someone out there with loadsa money that makes £30k every other day though and couldn't give a hoot.
