biggest problem with these higly modified/powerfull cars is that you need to know your stuff if you want to buy it; or you'll drive it, it eventually breaks something and you're screwed (a normal garage won't be able to fix anything as they don't know what parts they need. it's not a high horsepower japanese whip that everyone knows a lot of :lol: )
guys that know theyre stuff mostly want to build their own machines, because that's more fun and you get to know the car from the ground up. on a sidenote, this car isn't license registred anymore so its purely a track-toy.
so the price he's asking is looking at the parts/car a very good buy! but he needs a handyman to buy it who has no time to build his own trackcar or something; so it's a small market of people that are potentially interested

there is no story on the inet, owner isn't that fanatic with publishing facts/figures etc.
he is/was a (parttime)mechanic at a Porsche dealer (hense why a lot of parts are from different porsche's)

engine wise: B230FT base, forged pistons and rods, forged B21ET crank and a turbo off a Porsche (no idea on size/trim though), standalone management and 3,5" exhaust.
around 450bhp and 600Nm@3200rpm
