BaT Auctions has a beautiful 2008 Lotus Elise SC edition in Ardent Red with 4900 miles on the block in a no reserve auction. This car has only 4900 miles and with 6 days to go, it already has a bid of $37,500.00. Although it looks like it is in pristine condition, my question is does letting a car sit for 14 years and not driving it help or hurt it. It seems to me like buying a very old bottle of wine, until you open it up, you don't know if it's good or bad so you just don't open it so it continues to goes up in value. I buy wine to drink.
