Anyone owned one of these beasts or know anything about them? After doing some research on Audizine and Google I couldn't help but think of these as old school W8's; keep up with maintenance and it will go the distance, expensive/rare parts, but a blast to drive.

I might be going to look at this one on Sunday. It looks/sounds immaculate and well taken care of. Just looking to see if anyone here can give me suggestions or advice whether it's a good solid car or run far away. (At least the V8's were produced longer than the W8's were...that's something, right? lol)

That's nice and for the price a fun car like that, too bad its not a stick though. In the bext year or do I'm looking for a project / fun car and this may go on the list of possible cars, even if its among the most modern

Not really looking to travel that far for a $3k car, haha. Good looking out though.

Not gonna lie...I'm looking into another XJ. (Jeep Cherokee). I miss mine horribly.

I had a YJ in my teens which may has been one of the most fun things to drive in the summer or in snow storms. However looking back it was uncomfortable, drafty and unsafe over 70 MHP. I'd love to any another as a toy though.
