I can firmly state- no, I haven't been looking at BiTurbos! Honest!- this has been listed on the FB market for longer than just the "5 weeks" claim listed. No idea what you could get it for, but I am absolutely considering tossing a $500 bid just to try.

... honestly though, why is a BiTurbo such a meme here?

That might actually be overpriced at $500.  Note the mice crap on the speedometer shot.  gross.

$250 if it has a clean title and they deliver it without making it even worse in the process.  It's a shell with a lot of junk still in it.

How would just the back wheels go missing?

See how it looks like someone took a E36 M3 it the driver's seat? That was Maserati. They actually came that way.

And unless those wheels are in the trunk or somehow included in the deal, have fun replacing them with wheels from anything else with their oddball 4x98mm bolt pattern.

This is actually kind of ripe for a "remove driveline, put Nissan Leaf powertrain in place of rear axle" BiTurbo EV conversion that I have very idly wondered about doing at some point in the future that almost assuredly will never happen.  I would rather have a Spider and not a coupe for this swap, of course.

I'm gonna get one someday and bring it back to life because I want my 15 seconds of fame.

A man would have to be a glutton for punishment to take that on for free, much less pay to bring that into his life.

Several years ago I was building a car for a guy at a storage facility. A few units over there was a gentleman and a buddy who'd show up every Saturday morning to work on a couple biturbos he had in his unit. He always arrived in his DD which was another biturbo. I was amazed that he'd show up week after week, month after month always in the same car.

How did it get so many miles on it? Must be a record for a carbed one. And no evidence of fire!

What's the wheelbase? That would make an interesting body swap.
