1986 Shelby GLHS Turbo

This is car number 189 of only 500 produced, and it's not often you find these in such great condition - this example having under 25,000 miles on the clock. It's not exactly cheap though, currently advertised on Ebay USA with a buy it now price of $21,450.00 (USD). According to the seller, this example is completely original, and everything is working perfectly (except the radio). There are a few small imperfections (small dents, etc.), but to demonstrate how well preserved this car is, the seller notes it is still fitted with its original Goodyear tyres.

The Shelby GLHS Turbo was built from the Dodge Omni GLH as a base, with a number of modifications made to the mechanicals, interior and exterior. These changes resulted in a 175hp hot hatch, who's inline 4-cylinder engine put many other sportscars with larger engines to shame. In addition to the mechanical specifications, various body decals, Shelby Centurian wheels and unique interior features set the car apart from non-Shelby counterparts, and a plaque was placed on the dashboard containing the vehicle's individual 3-digit production number. 

The price is very high, and it will be interesting to see what sort of offers the car gets.
