    For anyone looking for a very rare future vintage race car, a seller in Ohio has a deal for you! The seller has two of the three Northstar LMP02 race cars that were built and campaigned by Cadillac Racing in 2002. One or both are available with a Buy it Now price of just $355,000. The cars are apparently fully functional with the Bosch and Pi electronics packages in place.

    These were the second-generation cars that were purpose built by Cadillac for its third season of LMP1 competition. Modified Riley and Scott chassis were used for the first two years with only limited success; the newer car was designed by Nigel Stroud and was powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter Northstar V8.

    That 600 horsepower mill was based on the unit used in the Indy Racing League and by Opel in the German Touring Car Championship. Caddy's LMP02s finished ninth and twelfth at Le Mans in 2002 and had a best finish of second in the Miami ALMS race. The Cadillac program was canceled at the end of the 2002 campaign after General Motors realized it couldn't compete with the resources that Audi was willing to put into its Le Mans program. A tip of the hat to Ryan!
