Let us be trustworthy here, the automotive marketplace has peeked into absolute absurdity! No matter whether you affiliate the preposterous selling prices of automobiles in today’s marketplace a fluke, similar to source chain challenges, greedy people, or just COVID-19, prices have been outside of ludicrous. We agree with the sentiments of Nicolas Cage’s Randall ‘Memphis’ Raines’ character on ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’ when he stated, “There’s way too several self-indulgent wieners in this town with too considerably bloody dollars!”
We all know that the selling prices are the result of a collective of factors. On the other hand, the future does not exhibit any variations in the way issues are likely so we will carry on to see Honda S2000s offer for six figures like this exceptional and special 2009 S2000 CR, which marketed for an astonishing $200,000 on Bring A Trailer this 7 days. That shatters the current report of a 5,500-mile 2008 Honda S2000 CR providing for $127,500 on the exact same auction internet site back in February of this 12 months.
Absolutely sure, a Honda S2000 is no Ferrari or supercar for that matter. It is, on the other hand, a special automobile for us fanatics and its vintage roots and 8,000+ RPM joyful spot is one thing we can all get powering and cherish as getting one particular of the newest “classics” for folks like us. Not to point out, there ended up only 700 S2000 CRs (Club Racer) versions at any time produced for the U.S. marketplace touting a 2.2-liter inline-4-cylinder VTEC motor making 237 horsepower. While this case in point that offered for $200k is very a rarity among the rarities with only 123 miles on the clock, it displays how outrageous the present-day automotive market place has turn out to be.
Will matters make a flip this 12 months? Possible, not, until we enter into some war with a place that’s hardly ever supplied us with any cars. Until then, get used to this absurdity!
