      I beat a Audi R8 away from a light in my Smart this morning, but I'm not sure he was aware it was a race.

      Even more rare if equipped with the 6 speed.

      I have driven one in Denver.

      The C4 urS6 Avant is rare IIRC as is the Type 89 Coupé Quattro (~1500 imported).

      I love those! I had one come through, when I was doing sales in WA, back in 2005. That baby was gone by the end of the week. I was sad to see it go. It was in showroom condition and ran as good as it looked!

      when I worked for a VW dealer one of our local area corporate people would occasionally pay visits in a Passat W8 wagon with...wait for it...a 6-speed manual trans. Now THAT'S a rare freakin' duck.

      It seems like I heard/read somewhere that VW built less than 50 W8 wagons with manual gearboxes.

      I think that the rarest cars are the lower spec trim levels of the cheap cars. No one buys those, they are just built to be able to advertise a low entry level price.

      I think there is an older guy in Janesville with one of those. Such a good looking old wagong.

      A STOCK 99-00 Milano Red Civic Si...

      Milano red was the rarest color in the USA (I think it was the same for Canada too, although EBP was replaced with Silver for the 2000 model year though.)

      I would almost wager there aren't any left.

      I think a lot of you missed the point.

      You've either posted
      A: Cars that were cheap little econocars and plentiful when new yet, oddly, 25 years later they are extinct when the cost of new brakes was more than the car was worth.
      or
      B: Cars that were expensive when new and didn't sell well
      or
      C: Limited edition cars that were always rare

      I think the intent of the thread was for mainstream cars with low to comparable prices of the competition yet you just NEVER seem to actually see them anywhere.

      Rare car with a not rare price tag : Mitsubishi Galant

      You're right, finding a stock 99-00 Civic Si is quite difficult. But, a stock EM1 Civic Si with a clean title will set you back a pretty penny these days. Most of the ones out there have salvage theft titles or have been modded to death.
