    Might be fast

    FUBAR looking. Ok maybe thats harsh. Its a lot of money for over the counter non-custom visual appointments, and a premium cost for RWHP that can be had in a variety of ways at less cost. All this and is there a warranty?

    How much are they asking for the car? I couldn't find one for sale.

    I agree the wheels are beyond ugly. If I traded I would keep my forgestars.

    The car has under 1000 miles. I'm being told that Martin built 12 and this was #1. Price is 73000
    I hope to drive and see it tomorrow it wasn't there last night

    $73k is better than the $200k Hennessey asks for similar output.

    Still too much for a 2011 V, though. Cheaper to buy a stocker 2011 and mod it to the same level.

    For that price, there had better be a warranty, and a fabulous one at that.

    Where has it been for the last three years and why does it have under 1000 miles on it?

    100 test drives probably. Sounds appetizing. Not.

    A thousand miles is a lot just for test drives. I wonder if some of those miles are dealership spiff hoonage, or even a previous owner. And I wonder how much time it spent back in the tuner shop getting adjustments.

    We have built Several 1000hp twin turbo cars that have made 1200 hp on other people dyno for less than 35k.....

    As for that car and price, I would pass at that. I can build that exact combo for 16k usually.

    So take 44k for car and 16k in mods.....

    Have you looked at his website? Awful wheels? Extreme elegance? Ridiculous sales-speak to a ridiculous sounding name. I take a lot of pride in my name but if it sounds stupid slapped on a car, I'm not doing it...

    OK, checked out the website. Jim was right. I was wrong.

    Cheese.

    (and here you're right again, the JIM1000 doesn't sound very good)
