Does anyone fancy a heavily discounted nearly-new Alfa Giulia Quadrifoglio Verde? There’s one for sale in Belgium with just a few thousand miles on the clock at €30,000 less than the brand new sticker price, but there’s a slight catch.

It looks like this particular bargain has been smashed into something hard. At speed. And it may not have been facing the right way around when it happened.

It’s missing the right rear wheel and rear bumper, the bodywork has taken a hell of a beating and the right-hand rear door is pretty much dead. It looks like major suspension components and chassis mounting points are shafted, too.

On top of that, it looks like at least a couple of the exhaust tips have been bent out of shape and the boot lid no longer fits properly on the right-hand side, but at the very least it looks like none of the airbags have fired.

The dealer claims that the Ferrari co-developed 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 engine is fine, and apparently so is the reversing camera. Well, that’s okay, then…

Looking at the damage it would be logical to assume that this poor Giulia QV, for sale at a dealer a couple of miles outside the town of Kortrijk, had been oversteering at the moment of the crash. It’s also possible that a third-party car has slammed into the rear corner, but we’re willing to bet on the former.

So we ask those of you with serious body shop experience: would you repair this, and even if you could, would you have any change left from the €30,000 saving versus a new one?

We can imagine the wait for replacement parts for these must be excruciatingly long. We think we’d pass on this.
