Don’t look it directly in the eyes. Nobody knows exactly what will happen if you do, but it’s definitely bad. This 1990 Nissan Autech Zagato Stelvio is already angry, and it might just body slam you into the floor if it thinks you’re disrespecting it. It’s put up with nasty remarks about its aesthetic deficiencies for years, and it decided that enough was enough. Be kind to it, and it will be kind to you.

...

For this Zagato-bodied wonder, Autech built a chassis (based on modified Nissan Leopard bones) and tuned up a high-horsepower version of Nissan’s 3-liter VG30DET turbocharged V6 to power it. Zagato handled the body.

...

As luck would have it, this one is for sale currently on eBay with a buy it now price of $49,500. To sweeten the pot, if you drive this thing to a Radwood you’ll definitely win a Raddest in Show trophy.

Definitely an odd duck. I had an Infiniti J30 in college, with the VG30DE, and it's a pretty solid running engine, would be a blast with the T.

I think BringATrailer has a tendency to boost value in some cars that are ... well ... simply put, rare junk.

Then again, if the guy trying to sell his bone stock 3G TL Type-S for $19,000 put it up on BaT, the value of his car would do anything but boost.

Bimmer sold for $77K, so quick run up to $70 and then only another 10% after that.

Rare junk or niche or unusual cars that maybe have a limited audience and are willing to pay a little more to have it. It's always supply and demand and the supply of some if these is very limited. $0.02

Eww, green though.

My favorite color is green, but it rarely looks good on cars IMO. On a Viper or a Lamborghini in that highlighter-looking hue, sure.

Could also be the lighting/photography. That kind of darker green is probably hard to make look good in a photo...need it to shine/pop more with better sun/lighting/photo. Certainly rare color.

Looks like collectors are cashing in on their 1G NSX they've been sitting on all these years....lol

If you had the coin - would you drop $125K on it?

Green wouldn't be my first choice but I'm sure it looks sharp in person.

I suppose it depends upon how much coin is in the slush fund; if is only at say, $150,000, hell no, however, if it is at say, $150,000,000, then why the hell not?

I get that - was just wondering what the intrinsic value might be and fully realize this will vary from person to person. Drop ~$125K on a 187 mile car, then do you drive it? Just waxing philosophically.........

So, this NSX has been up for auction before at Mecum in May last year, with 4 less miles since then. Was projected at $135K-$165K, with a high bid of $120K that was rejected.

At $110K with 5 days left, I'd be surprised if the seller gets any more out of it than they could've last year.

At $8,900, Would You Consider Horsing Around in This 2014 Hyundai Equus Ultimate?

Today we’re featuring a car that’s not about the kids. It’s about the grandkids. That’s because this 2014 Hyundai Equus Ultimate is a car that was aimed at what we might call the “active senior crowd.” At least that’s the only people I’ve ever seen driving them outside of Hyundai’s HQ.

The Equus takes its name from the Latin word meaning horse and served for a a time as Hyundai’s halo model. There’s also a disturbing play of the same same name that involves a kid cutting out horse’s eyes. I can see why Hyundai didn’t want to make that connection in any sort of ad campaign for their range-topping car.

While cars like that particular NSX are cool time capsules, I would rather spend much less on a car that was actually driven. Plus I would want to drive it myself. If I scooped something with such low mileage at such a price I'd feel hesitant about driving it.

My preference is for the 97+ models anyway.

Ok I agree with you here. I prefer the 3.2l and the 6MT paired with pop up headlights, but I would not turn down an opportunity to own any of them.

That 215k mile Equus would make me consider one if I was looking for a car like that. I’ve always liked the stealth styling and the idea of a nice highway cruiser.

Someone on jalopnik said the dude that owns that green sub-200 mile NSX has about 40 cars (not surprising). And he probably has a plethora of amazing cars to choose from, and maybe another NSX that he drives more where this one sits as an investment piece.

People who are at that level of wealth/status probably have so much access to so many amazing things regularly (cars, homes, watches, elite class travel, etc. etc.) that what's amazing to us (OMG I'd totally drive the heck out of that pristine NSX!!!) is probably standard/normal/routine to them.

Couple friends are selling their 65 Shelby Mustang race car, one of them used to vintage race this car at mid-Atlantic events.

So far you are right - Still at $110K and 3 days left.

The W204 was never my favorite generation C, but a 6MT
The only MT Mercs I've driven were W201 2.3-16 190Es.

https://jalopnik.com/this-2008-merce...nic-1833723297

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this thing pop up on Craigslist (ad saved here). A W204-chassis C-Class with a six-speed manual? I don’t think I’ve ever come across one of those before.

The seller, to their credit, posted a very straightforward ad about it:

Up for sale is a 2008 Mercedes Benz C300 Sedan with the hard to find 6 speed manual transmission. Rear wheel drive. One of the last manual transmission Mercedes cars. Car is in excellent shape. Clean title and clean carfax. 197k miles. 2 owner car. Has the optional panoramic roof. Nothing wrong with the car. Has a rip in the driver’s seat.
The price at the time of this writing is $5,200. Also note the lack of screams of “I KNOW WHAT I HAVE.”
