But it's a PORSCHE engine  ;)  Someone will buy it then mention the purchase to his mates. Howmuchwasit? Bit of a bargain for a Le Mans engine old chap, just $185k, it will do for a spare  :D

Interesting comparison would be what the most recent sale of an S20 went for, or an L series with the tc24 b1z head fitted

Same as the question that asked when the Maybach was released for A$1,000,000 a few years back.

Q: Who would pay A$1,000,000 for a new car ?
A: Someone who wants to say they paid A$1,000,000 for a new car.

Personally I can think of other things I would buy with for that money.
