Price is £295,000
So this S1 E2 has run Pikes Peak and that pretty much sells it for me. Now only if I could scrape up £295,000 ($335,849 USD). Still, quite a bargain against Audi’s Walter Röhrl S1 E2 Pikes Peak which has to be valued in the millions. If you want to make a splash at the next gathering, you can find this PikesPeak HERE.
