another gem:

$12,500 current bid.

SOMEONE spent $800,000+ restoring this baby to custom glory back in 2007.

You just have to go look at the spec sheet that details all the individual costs on this thing. Mind blowing.

Ho Lee Fuk. If I dropped that kind of coin on an RV I'd expect to get buried in it.

Best part was my comment about the supercharger.

$33,700 + in engine work, yet somehow that doesn't include the supercharger?

which was...

$12,600 to install (LOL)

and, even worse

$13,600 to Tune! BAAA HAHAHAHAHAHAH.

So just on the engine alone, with supercharger, it's a $60,000 motor. Dang. This thing gives a Chiron a run for the money!

Current Mauck bid price ~ 21% the initial price of the motor rebuild.

I love how pretty much all items include zero detail. Just "Additional Interior Work" like Lebron James would scoff at more detail, should he even care so much as to let his gilded eyes catch a glimpse of the sales receipt.

I read down in the comments. It appears this rig was treated as a business expense by some ultra wealthy Manhattan VC investment firm CEO. $800K to him is probably peanuts.

Check out this reply from the Seller on the Mauck:

"Good Evening BaT. I had a discussion with the owner today and he put together a short write up to potentially answer a number of the questions here.

The following is direct from the owner:

A few points... 1) To settle the debate: It's a mobile office. It has mil-spec satellite capability and can run off-grid with sunshine ***55357;***56841;. Also has something like 160 amps of batteries. I've conducted many a board meeting from it.

2) But, it is ALSO an occasional camper (hence the convertible beds). Why? B/c my kids wanted to camp in it. Which we did, many times. So it was a two-fer. They're grown now.

3) The right buyer is someone very busy in life that needs to spend time at remote venues (horse shows, auto races, that sort of thing), where having all the comforts of home just steps away - and a full comm suite - is important.

4) No one has yet picked up on the AMX home automation system. The vehicle runs itself, day and night. Lighting, hvac, security, auto-leveling (what we call landing gear), etc.

5) Yes it was expensive. It's a Gulfstream on the ground. And no, $800+k does not equal the ability to fly. For that you'd need to add another $8 million minimum (used). The finishes are Bentley/Rolls caliber, only more understated; that was by design.

6) The bathroom is a marine setup, but it is not small or tight at all. I have showered in it many times, as have others. Interestingly, it virtually never runs out of hot water. The tankless system is quite effective.

7) Some seem to be under the impression this thing is massive; it is not. At 25' long it is less than a yardstick past a duellie pickup, and about the same width as the exterior rear wheels. This was critical.... Many venues do not permit big 40' Prevosts, RV campers, etc. This vehicle was specifically chosen to fly under the restrictions radar at the majority of venues. Always has. Actually, sometimes the show-runners want to hang out in it. Which can be it's own problem.

8) At about 8.5 feet high, it clears parkway underpasses everywhere I know. Try that in Sprinter. This can be meaningful at times. Also, at 13-14k lbs, it's lighter than I think many people realize. It's pretty quick and nimble to drive. Sitting in a driver position in front of the axle takes a little getting used to (turn later), but becomes habit quickly. Note that I drove this myself most times (including all around NYC) - no hired driver required.

9) We did not build the wing doors. They came stock. They're fun, and we like them. They also operate quite easily and are well done. But we'd have never thought of them on our own.

10) It's pretty much soundproof. Barely a square inch w/o advanced multi-frequency deadening materials. The glass is 7mm, and also coated (5 is typical). If you've spent time at large sports outings and want to run meetings inside without loudspeakers blaring in the background, you'll know why this is important. And expensive. Also makes the occasional KOA a lot more peaceful.

11) for those that noticed... yes, Stripes is playing. We sometimes call it the EM-51. It's 1 louder.

Finally.... could I have bought condos or houses instead? I guess. That wasn't going to help with horse shows. Stay in 5 star hotels? Sure. But not at most horse shows.

We wanted a super-comfy, high-quality landjet with full comms / entertainment, complete climate control, high security, automation, also with a full-bath, basic kitchen, capable of handling limited off-road conditions (ie mud) that could occasionally double as a functional camper for the family. So we built one. It took 20 months. AI Design did (and does) phenomenal work, and they charge accordingly. Though I'll be asking about that toll charge

Cheers,

Jim"

OK, Someone please calm me down because my MIND IS NOW BLOWN.

An Alpina Z8 for sale, currently around $113,000, yes, an ALPINA Z8 that is supposed to be better than the original BMW in every way..

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/2003-bmw-z8-alpina-2/

Standard BMW Z8's have the M5's S62.

But the Alpina version has the better... LOL WUT?? M62?????????????? I had no idea. Not only that, in true Alpina fashion, the shove a boring automatic in there too, way to make the car look better on the outside Alpina and COMPLETELY ruin it's driveability compared to the standard BMW version!

^ $8500 is a pretty good deal for a low mile good condition manual ZHP. Wish it was a sedan though...

Pass on the Z8. Love that car to death but not with an auto and certainly not with the M62 in there...

I agree with you Sammy, but chances are this car will go up over 10 grand easy when the auction nears the end... I will predict a final sale value of this car to be approximately 16-18K when all is said and done. Don't think it will reach over 20K.

Nah, F that, this is the "winter beater" I really want in my stable! Anyone ever see the one Matt Farrah owned that he gave to some young kids to travel around the country to push the mileage up as it was getting close to 1 million miles???

Amazing quality in this car. You buy this one at 48K miles, it might just be the last car you ever own.
