A fair amount of info, specifically about the current status of the car can be found on the EBAY LINK
If you think the price is too high, that's fine. But that's less than what it's worth to me.
BELOW IS WHAT IS CONTAINED IN THE EBAY AD
Without getting too wordy, I'm considering selling my 1987 BMW car that I pretty much built from scratch. It took 4 years to build by myself (mechanical engineer). No expense was spared. The reason I am selling it is simply disinterest. Right about the time I completed the project I started BASE jumping and my interest in cars just fell off. (buy it now before I die)
About the car.
There is a whole blog about the buildup of the car which can be found here: http://newman.onyxsyndicate.com/e30gtr/e30gtr_00.htm
The car was featured on Jalopnik.com as well as in print from S3 magazine (I have some copies if you want them)
No expense was spared. I have about $45,000 invested in the car, really... plus 4 years of my time.
The car saw 500hp/400ft-lb on a MUSTANG dyno.
Almost every step of the build process was documented in the blog. If you have a question, it's probably answered in there. If you have a specific question, drop me a message.

The car always draws TONS of spectators, controversy, praise, whatever.
All that stuff ^up there^
One of a kind... show me another.
The car is basically brand new. EVERYTHING has been replaced or refurbished. Motor, chassis, suspension, interior.
It's fast (boost is set around 400 whp)
The paint job may not be everyone's taste. It's a strange color. In sunlight it looks gold. In the evening or in artificial light it looks gold. I'm not going to try to explain why this happens. There are a few small imperfections in the paint. The front fenders don't match perfectly, either.
The turbo burns a TINY bit of oil. I attribute this to running antilag on the car when I first tuned it. That's pretty rough on turbos.
(maybe good?) It's practically a race car. Solid engine mounts, cage, race buckets. You know the drill.
The windows tend to roll themselves down. (I modified the power window tracks instead of buying OEM manual windows)
The clutch does slip some under WOT. I would be willing to install a new one. We can talk about that if you're seriously interested.
Look at the blog or email me for more info.
Again, there are TONS of pictures on the blog, but here are a few (these are linked from facebook, so if they don't work, let me know)
