Car is at the dealers currently getting serviced...will post interior/engine bay photo if I have serious inquiries! (Am having maintenance done...so, is not handy to snap pics at the moment...) Engine bay and interior are FLAWLESS! Show room condition...
NO track days....and was broken in carefully!!!!!!! 3 oil changes to date, all service done at either Newport European or SF Lotus ONLY!
I am the original owner. Shoreline has done me LOTS of favors over the years, so I always give them a plug when I can, hence the plates..."Thanks Paul!!!".
(This car has never been listed for sale there....)
Collecting cars is an expensive hobby. Here's a twist: Buy a new car today that will be worth a fortune as a collectible years from now.
The Audi S5 is a slick coupe with solid credentials.
Best of all, you don't need to break the bank to buy a hot and value-appreciating ride. But you do have to be patient, since waiting is key.
"Many consumers could be driving a future collector car right now," McKeel Hagerty, CEO of Hagerty, a specialty insurer of collector cars in the United States, and himself a respected collector car valuation expert.
"Our goal was to find cars that are currently on the road but may be considered nostalgic in 15 to 20 years. Each car on Hagerty's Hot List possesses a 'buzz,' a wow factor that resonates with consumers of all ages, many cars being daily drivers that turn heads already."
Why do some vehicles become tomorrow's collector car? Hagerty says it's a combination of pop culture popularity, limited production numbers and the style of the next generation of collectors.
Hagerty's Hot List, the top 10 collector cars of the future:
1. Cadillac XLR-V Roadster
Under the hood sits a hand-built 4.4-liter V8 that's been supercharged and puts out 443 horsepower. This is a serious domestic roadster that competes with the Mercedes SL-Class, Porsche 911 Cabriolet and Jaguar XKR, as well as the four-seat BMW M6 convertible. AOL Autos: Cadillac XLR Roadster
2. Lotus Exige S
Most practical people will find the Lotus Exige is a miserable little car -- that is if you are shopping for a grocery getter! Research uncovered one anonymous review stating "Bottom Line ... my heart beats faster when I think about this car ... it is that rewarding."
Like I said in the body of the ad...if you are INTERESTED, PM me....
If I wanted to post the amount, and have it up for discussion, debate, etc...I would have done that...
Not really interested in casual persons shopping for the lowest priced car they can find...this is a non-tracked, pristine, hard to find color car with all the options....
if you are looking for someone wanting to dump the car, and get out from under it....Ebay is full of salvaged/heavily modified/out of warranty/damaged/or dealer demos that I am sure you would be much more happy with....
If you are not interested in mine, no worries...please feel free to move on to another car someplace else, I really don't need the comments...
