One of the most spectacular cars we've ever built is on BaT. This is the first of the NDs to change hands. I predict a fairly strong selling price, but it'll be a bargain.

At the very least you should check out the pictures. That's free.

Considering it's already bid to over $45K, I agree the selling price should be strong.

I am curious about one of the questions asked, why spend so much money and effort to build this car and then barely drive it?

I put more miles than that on an LS3 ND last week. But to each their own. The owner has a collection of very interesting cars, like a turbo Atom. It's his choice.

Sometimes you buy something cool and then find that you don't ever use it for reasons. 

My ride in the V8 ND shop car is still one of my automotive highlights. These are astonishing cars.

True.  Hopefully the new owner will enjoy it more often.

Part of me wishes I had the funds to buy it. Another part of me knows that much HP in a Miata would be wasted on me.
