Amstrad CPC 464 Plus

At £80 this particular Amstrad CPC 464 + that appeared on eBay might seem a bit over-priced. Then again, I don't remember when the last time I saw a 464 Plus was and I do believe it to be quite a rarity. The seller after all is selling the micro complete with colour monitor, joypad, the Burning Rubber/Locomotive Basic cartridge, over 67 games on tape, some -uhm- backup tapes, manuals, books and even some Amstrad Action issues. Seller is willing to ship to Europe but would apparently prefer UK addresses. 


  1. Seems like we'll never grow tired of CPC. This is the very same model I used to know, since an old friend of mine had it, and we spent many hours on Burnin' Rubber, Bart vs. The Space Mutants and Back to the Future 3... Good ol' times...

  2. Burnin' Rubber was indeed excellent and a great showcase of the Plus' enhancements. Thing is I don't believe that many 464 + were sold after all. Still, the CPC only comes second to the Speccy in terms of just how brilliant it was.

  3. think i may have paid that too for it!! so rare them now!
