Too good to be true price?

Does anybody know any info on this car? it has a salvage title pics of accident do not look bad. It has a manufacture buyback which is more worrying. How can I research if the dealer repaired the car after the lemon law? The Vin number is SCCLMDTU1CHA10633 here is the link to the ad. https://orangecounty.craigslist.org/...890140746.html

At 82000 miles, I'd assume the issue that caused the manufacturer buy back has long since been remedied

the current owner bought it from a dealer and he has only driven it a few times. The dealer bought it from an insurance auction and it only had what appeared to have the front bumper taken off.

Youíll get what you paid for, never let me down.
More than anything I would worry about the repaint. Lotus paint job is awesome, and shouldnít peels off from vinyl wrap.
Also Automatic transmission is not for everyone. But hey itís $25k which is about $10k off clean 2010. So if you tight on budget and looking to keep it for long, itís maybe decent deal.
Personally I would get 2010 with more clear history for a bit extra money (which I did).

If a buyer is looking for a cheap Evora, and doesn't mind a salvage title, then why not buy directly from the insurance auction? Lots to choose from.
