    That is Rob Whitehead's RS that was featured on the cover of the Esses several issues ago, which I can't seem to find right now. He did a very extensive restoration of this car if I remember correctly. Most of the work was done at a shop in Chicago called Midwest Eurosport. Anyone have that issue handy?

    R Gruppe #299

    Yes, found it - Winter 2003 - same car. The dealer lists it as having a 2.9, but ESSES says it's the matching #'s 2.7 rebuilt.

    Any comments on the asking price?

    Price seems low.

    My sources tell me it sold in a nanosecond to a dealer for a hundy. The dealer then promptly resold it to a European client for a buck and a quarter.

    Damn, I love this country!

    I guess the market is that good. I hate to knock another person's car but there are some painfully obvious parts and details that are incorrect. Where would that put the price if the details were correct and/or this was a first series car? Hate to say it my predictions of $150,000 Touring cars are not that far off. Ouch!

    Well hopefully that will inflate the prices of Early Esses as well. If we start seeing some ridiculous prices for Esses, I might be inclined to spend a little more money on my restoration.

    I am not a RS expert, but could you enumerate some of those deficiencies.

    I see a non-orginal steering wheel, scratched passenger side window trim as well as a scratches near the instruments.

    I am not sure about some other items. Should the doors have black paint on the parts that are visible from the interior? Is that overspray on the muffler or normal discoloration.

    I would think you would get a nearly perfect car for $100k.
