AWD > FWD. I know this by personal experience. GKN Twinster FTW.

Yeah, wow.

Usually you see a bunch of activity at the beginning,then a lull, then a bunch more activity at the end, but still wow.

I'm still the closest so far!

Honda can only sell something that ugly by tying it to a charity. Interesting.

Honda should win this with the highest bid and give it as a gift to Tim Mings who restored Honda #001 N600 recently.

Ed's prediction was near that number, too. I guess my $1 bid has been totally beat.

Anything over sticker counts as a donation as far as taxes go. If you (or your company) thinks this is a good place to donate anyway, you get to make your yearly donation AND jump to the head of the line.

Put it in a museum. One day these will be admired for their timeless beauty---- like the E-Type Jaguar, and the Ferrari 250 Lusso.

Glad to see such a huge amount of $$ going to charity. That's a good thing.

The Honda is about the norm in terms of power per liter on turbo engines these days - same as the Focus RS, for instance.

My street Solstice is sitting at 187 bhp/liter at the moment with mild mods and 250 is doable.

Would never have guessed that amount of $$$.
