Check it out....don't know how I feel about this car after doing the VPA. At least it probably already has the diff cooler looks like it still has the 2 piece rotors. Calipers look like they may have bronzed a bit

Yeah, I saw that. I probably wouldn't pay more than $40K for it given the abuse and lack of warranty. Brakes are most likely shot. One rear tire is almost bald.

I have been to one of those events and these cars are badly abused. I am sure someone will buy them though. The car has under 3K miles, but it is probably equivalent to 50K miles of normal driving. Clutch, brakes and tires are all most likely done.

Litigator, wasn't your car purchased used (I paid $52k for mine in Jan of this year(2011) and it had 7k miles)? :p If it's not a "hooker" what is it then?

Why does the title say 2011 but the description says 2010?

Rode hard and put away wet - a car after my own heart.

It's definitely a 2011.

I went to so many of those events years ago and I drove those cars crazy hard! To say they were beaten on would be an understatement, a salvage title is not a stretch in my mind. However, I have no idea how the car you are refering to was treated but to save $10,000 I wouldn't touch it.
