Vintage Cinelli saddle question

so i picked up a perforated white-rubber type cinelli saddle. it has the gold cinelli c on both sides-not printed but a small piece of metal or plastic. also has gold writing on it. looks 80s. i put this on one of my bikes-feels good-a guy saw it and offered me a bunch of vintage stuff including a turbo for it. is this valuable? anyone know what im talking about? thanks

Sounds like a maybe Volare SLX? If so, a white perf is indeed valuable. In good condition they fetch $200+ Pics of course would help.

Yeah, that's the Volare SLX. Totally rad looking saddle, but I have no idea how it feels. They go for a hefty sum on Ebay.

I sold one to a fixie hipster about 2-3 years ago for $70. Most uncomfortable thing I've ever sat on, good looking though. (not c0d3).
