Thumbs up Need a Race Car check this site out

This 2002 Opel ECO Speedster is one of three experimental fuel economy and speed record prototypes built by the former GM brand, though it’s not clear if this particular car is the one that achieved an incredible 140 mph/93 mpg average during a 24-hour run, during which stops were only allowed for fuel and driver changes. Derived from the second-generation Lotus Elise, these cars were marketed under both Opel Speedster (continental Europe) and Vauxhall VX220 (UK) badges, though rather than 145 hp 2.2 liter or turbo 220 hp 2.0 liter fours, these record cars used a corporate Ecotec 1.3 turbodiesel making just 110 hp. The car appears to be unchanged from its record-setting days, and is said to have been road registered at some point, possibly leaving the door open for it to be street-driven again. Find it here on Race Cars Direct in Baden-Württemberg, Germany for 89k GBP (~$114k USD today).
