I test drove the 2015 Birkin S3. It was absolutely raw. It had somewhere along the lines of 280HP, which is hard to beat at $30k.

 

I've never driven anything with a faster than 8 second 0-60 so it's a bit too much for me. I would be fine with a lower HP for less $.

rccsr: sounds like a X-flow Caterham would fit your needs: drive it flat out all the time, lift before corners, brake only if absolutely essential. All that frontal area + clams serve as an air brake. Very hard to over drive it, or lose rear traction.

That was the green with yellow stripe one at Wirewheel? I think that was one of the run of supercharged Birkins when Dick Brink was experimenting with for a bit. With that hp, you would want the Birkin IRS, something the ad is silent on. A live axle rear end would just be wrapping itself up in knots and tramping.

 

Congratulations on the wise choice to preserve your license!!!

True story. A dealer here in about 1986 had a 289 Cobra. Could NOT sell it - Brown. Lovely, if you like brown. Gave up, painted it red and added $20,000 to the price. Sold right away.

Link did not work but I went hunting and found it. Looks like you cannot link it - have to be a FB registered user and logged into FB Marketplace.

 

 

Try this link to see it plus some others I found.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/105756796124329/search?category_id=vehicles&query=Caterham

 

 

That Caterham is a great find. Good value at $22K.

My apologies for my very negative reaction.

 

I was caused by the ad claiming that it is Lotus 7 or Caterham. The build seems to be completely different from a standard S3 chassis. The Marketplace ad also headlines it as a Lotus Elise. All very strange.

Week beginning December 6, 2020

 

Based on some feedback this week, I want to state that a listing here does not constitute a recommendation from me or USA7s. Always do your due diligence, first on both the car and seller, before buying. A quick google will always tell you a lot about a selling dealer. I have no financial or legal interest in anything posted here.

Caterham and Champion - Facebook Marketplace. Browse the linked page to find them. That Caterham is a bargain if it stacks up.

The Champion from Facebook Marketplace is also listed separately here:
