 Another one.  Seriously AWESOME start to a Challenge Car.  Runs and Drives, and has less than 70,000 miles.  Linky Dinky Dooooo

They both seem like such bad choices but are still oh so tempting.  Not unlike my ex-wife was and I know how that turned out...

Forget the Challenge.  I want the BRG one for my wife's new daily.  Thank goodness I can't travel to California right now or I'd be tempted to make a really poor choice.

Sorry to hijack but I've always wondered- those auction houses usually move the cars with a forklift. How much damage does that typically cause? Smashed exhaust, dented floor pans, etc?

I'm on my phone, so it's a pretty small image, but I can't even see the rear end damage on the silver car.

The current bid on it is $250 right now. I don't know if it's got the supercharger.

I so want one of these in my life but I dunno if I’m brave enough to buy a sketchy one from auction.

Gotta buy a mommy van first anyway...

XJR.  It's got a Supercharger. Note, that one's only 370 hp though wink

 

Edit: Here's the money shot.  note the dual intercoolers on either side and the top of supercharger in the center.

 

Naturally aspirated engines look like the top of an LS1 intake like shown below:

You have to be a dealer to bid?

Just checked back in on this and now it's listed as "SOLD"

Did one of you Dorks grab it?

I'd bid on the silver one if I could find some folks local to it.

I've got a dealer buddy that's likely going to be bidding on the silver/gold one for me since he is interested in another lot up there.

This one's in Tampa Florida.

Closer to you I think.

That's the next generation if I am not mistaken. I thought it sounded like the earlier ones were a bit more robust in the trans and suspension department?

In reply to Greg Voth :

Yes. That one's the next generation (X350).  It has air ride suspension.  The previous generation had traditional coil springs.  I don't know of any increased problems with it or the transmission however.

The BRG and Slate grey cars are both X350s, the silver one is an X308. The easiest spotting difference from the front is the headlights. The X308s have four the same size, the X350s have bigger headlights on the outside.

I'm local, but I'm not a dealer and can't bid on it.
