Let’s be honest listed here, the automotive sector has peeked into absolute absurdity! Whether you associate the preposterous rates of autos in today’s current market a fluke, relevant to source chain problems, greedy folks, or just COVID-19, charges have been further than ludicrous. We concur with the sentiments of Nicolas Cage’s Randall ‘Memphis’ Raines’ character on ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’ when he reported, “There’s much too lots of self-indulgent wieners in this metropolis with as well a lot bloody income!”
We all know that the charges are the result of a collective of causes. Nonetheless, the long term doesn’t exhibit any variations in the way issues are heading so we will keep on to see Honda S2000s provide for six figures like this uncommon and one of a kind 2009 S2000 CR, which bought for an astonishing $200,000 on Deliver A Trailer this week. That shatters the latest history of a 5,500-mile 2008 Honda S2000 CR selling for $127,500 on the identical auction web-site back again in February of this calendar year.
Certain, a Honda S2000 is no Ferrari or supercar for that matter. It is, nevertheless, a unique auto for us enthusiasts and its traditional roots and 8,000+ RPM joyful put is something we can all get driving and cherish as currently being a person of the newest “classics” for people like us. Not to point out, there had been only 700 S2000 CRs (Club Racer) models ever manufactured for the U.S. current market touting a 2.2-liter inline-4-cylinder VTEC motor developing 237 horsepower. When this case in point that sold for $200k is very a rarity between rarities with only 123 miles on the clock, it reveals how ridiculous the present-day automotive current market has come to be.
Will factors make a flip this calendar year? Very likely, not, except we enter into some war with a state that is in no way equipped us with any cars. Until finally then, get used to this absurdity!
