Wanna Buy a Used Rally Car? It's a Deal @ $208k.

Yes, you read that right. For a fully built NT53 SRT WRC S10 LHD Irish Tarmac Spec, it'll run about 135k British pounds. What all the annotations mean, I have no clue. What I do know is that in order to build a car like this, it would cost well over the asking price they have listed on the website. Keep in mind that for suspension, there's roughly fifteen thousand dollars invested in each corner alone. Even the transmission case can cost up to 60k! While these prices may seem obnoxious, you must keep in mind that these are hands-down, the most capable on or off-road cars on the face of the earth. Of course there are the Baja trucks and dune buggies out there, but in the end, these are the best of the best.

Not only does the car come with all the performance upgrades equipped when driver, Darren Gass, won the ITC in 2012, but the car itself is still wearing the exact livery from the event! So not only do you get a world-class race car, but you get a race car steeped in winning history. (That may or may not have anything to do with the huge price-tag, but who cares???) Check out the highlights from the Irish Tarmac Championship and tell us whether or not you think this bad boy is worth the dough. Enjoy.
