What's all this wrapped and stickered stuff on the floor in front of the car?

$50k... Not worth it to me. It's a new car that has sat for 10 years.

This car is seriously no different nor better car than any other last generation S2000. Only extra "value" is the lack of mileage. Will be worth less ever mile driven so no one will ever "enjoy" it as a sports car unless they typically stand on a windy bridge tearing up $100 bills. After a couple of years and 30,000 miles it'll be just another S2000.

Looks like brand new leather seat covers (??) and the Tonneau.

I always say, if all you want to do is look at it, it shouldn't matter how many miles are on it. Just keep it dusted.

This is why I have a model of an S. At $50, it was much cheaper and does the same thing.

I would never buy a car that sat for 10 years, let alone pay an outrageous premium for that privilege. People who buy cars like that don't really have a particular passion for the car, it is just a rare piece to add to a collection for them. Reading some of the comments in that sale post it sounds like the final sale didn't go as well as they expected if I was reading that right.

Beautiful example. Would love the car especially with an extra set of leather, but not for $70k. I like S2000's, I just don't $70k like them.
