Chassis no. ZAR93700003135290. Black Metallic over black leather with gray inserts and trim. 3179/247hp V6, front wheel drive, 6-speed, alloy wheels, Goodyear Eagle F1 tires, red calipers, CD stereo, climate control, power windows, books and manuals.

Evaluation: Very clean underneath with light scrapes on the engine undertray and some surface rust and oxidation on suspension components. Clean, dry, orderly engine compartment in near showroom condition. “Fully” serviced this month, whatever that means. It may be 18 years old and have 32,781 km (20,369 mi) but it looks like much less. There are a few small exterior defects but they are essentially meaningless. An outstanding pocket rocket in excellent condition.

Bottom Line: Not yet eligible for import into the U.S., but an intriguing opportunity for an American looking for an unusual car to station strategically in Europe for frequent trips and potentially less expensive and more enjoyable than a rental car if used often enough. The result accurately reflects the potential driving enjoyment and impressive condition and preservation and isn’t expensive even at well over the pre-sale low estimate.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
