There are no dyno plots for the car nor 1/4 mile nor 0-60.
It was a "project" that is now 10 years old and for sale.

It does go real fast, and it feels like a big go-cart.

Pictures may help you heavy. Good luck. Unfortunately that car will probably only bring low to mid twenties.

I haven't been actively pursuing a sale as the car I want will not be available for another year.
However, I was approached by someone in a parking lot who knew a lot about V1's and is very interested.
We shall see.

Well it has been 6 months and I had some inquiries.

Now I found the car I want to replace the V with and I am getting ready.

I lowered the price $7k.

$25k.

Pics and walk around/start up video would probably bring more interest. Glws

Damn heavy, wish you weren't on the other side of the country. Guess it's a good thing since it's more than I could do right now anyway, but someone's going to get a helluva V1.

I think so to.

It is a very nice V and hasn't been beat on.

Build looks great, there is lots of really good stuff throughout this car. Since there are so few V1s....there are not many on Auto trader. Face it, most new buyers are not checking the forums.....Autotrader would have the highest chances of being seen around the country...anybody with 25k+ for a V1 should not have a problem retrieving it, if this is the right vehicle.

You've adjusted the price, show how that compares to comparable condition V2s right now. Add some high res pics, videos, etc. and I think you sell this. GLWS man. What is going to replace it?

I am trying to decide on either an I8 or the new NSX.

Leaning more towards the I8 as I already have a track car that never sees the track.

The I8 is very cool but I can't figure out if it is sexy or ugly. There is one around town I see maybe once a week or so and it's a definite love/hate depending on my mood, the lighting, and the angle. Mostly I worry about the upkeep on anything hybrid. I am definitely in for the 30K-50K mile driver report. Not disrespecting the performance potential at all.
