Some1 may take it to break it up.That engine is worth 7 grand i reckon. The kit is ruined as is the interior. Wheels will need re-conning and i doubt the hydraulic system is in perfect condition. May need new struts and the worx. Its obvious its gonna cost tens of thousands to make it work in the slightest

Talks a lot about the motor of the car, yet no performance figures are posted - did it ever see a road / track confused

IMO it looks a bit

I think when metal is exposed to that high a temperature (ie. fire), it's useless, like a cancer. Apart from the fact that they've left it in a field to rust beyond repair, I'm not surprised it hasn't had any bidders. They're being extremely optimistic.

It was horrible to begin with though, especially from the side.
