    Take a close look at the fine print.

    I think I'd want to see the complete contract with a legal adviser before bidding.

    75k starting bid,,,would go a long way towards a down payment on a car that you could own and go 210 + MPH..

    Now if they were talking speed of sound type of fast.....that would take some balls,,,:bow:

    Hell,, my wife has driven 180 + MPH,,,210 with the right car is no big deal.

    good idea, but an outrageous price. With $75,000+ I am absolutely positive I could create a land vehicle that could go 210+. I'm thinkin' custom motorcycle with a BUILT quad turbo BMW V12 as an engine/seat.

    Heck, get a complete POS car for $2,000 and drop a forged, stroked, bored and supercharged big block into it with $50,000 worth of machine work. Pocket the extra. Go 210+ at the strip.
