Hi Peter welcome to the club. Ask the dealer where it has been serviced and put the vehicle registration into the Govt MOT check site for the MOT history.  That should give you some background on it.

www.gov.uk/check-mot-history  

Hopefully it's had the cam-belt replacement service and water-pump replacement done. They are important.

1000 miles per year may increase once you get behind the wheel of the SC430, it's a rewarding drive. If the car is fine now and has been maintained correctly it should last you a lifetime. 

Mine has done 150,000 miles without any major issue despite all of the abuse it has received.
