Jorge seems to me like selling this car was on their mind. Only 2400 miles were put on it! A real car guy would drive the wheels off of it. Jay Lenos a car guy, you think he loses his ass off any of his cars? A car guy realizes the whole package.

That engine is over 7 liters. 650 hp is not that hard to get out of an engine that size.
