Let’s be honest here, the automotive sector has peeked into complete absurdity! No matter whether you associate the preposterous prices of vehicles in today’s current market a fluke, similar to source chain problems, greedy folks, or just COVID-19, prices have been further than ludicrous. We agree with the sentiments of Nicolas Cage’s Randall ‘Memphis’ Raines’ character on ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’ when he claimed, “There’s far too lots of self-indulgent wieners in this town with much too substantially bloody revenue!”
We all know that the prices are the end result of a collective of motives. Nonetheless, the future does not exhibit any changes in the way issues are heading so we will continue to see Honda S2000s promote for six figures like this rare and exceptional 2009 S2000 CR, which bought for an astonishing $200,000 on Carry A Trailer this week. That shatters the new record of a 5,500-mile 2008 Honda S2000 CR offering for $127,500 on the same auction website back again in February of this calendar year.
Sure, a Honda S2000 is no Ferrari or supercar for that matter. It is, nevertheless, a special automobile for us fanatics and its common roots and 8,000+ RPM content spot is one thing we can all get at the rear of and cherish as becoming one of the most recent “classics” for individuals like us. Not to point out, there were being only 700 S2000 CRs (Club Racer) styles at any time created for the U.S. market touting a 2.2-liter inline-4-cylinder VTEC engine manufacturing 237 horsepower. Although this illustration that bought for $200k is really a rarity amid rarities with only 123 miles on the clock, it shows how insane the present automotive current market has grow to be.
Will items make a flip this year? Likely, not, except if we enter into some war with a country which is hardly ever equipped us with any autos. Until finally then, get employed to this absurdity!
