Oh, that is so sad. But I've never heard of a Kirkham costing $200K except the one for the CEO of Oracle

But, that's the only way to really be SURE it doesn't float!

A full polish car usually comes out around $120k with all the goodies.

Really sucks that it ended in the drink.

But if it was an "all billet" aluminum cobra I guess it could cost $200k.
If it was one of the two all billet cars then it would have cost much more than $200k. One of those cars is safe and sound in Utah and the other is safe and sound in California so I am thinking this one is just a boring old Kirkham at a price much closer to $100 than $200k.

We had a ZR1 Vette wind up in the lake at Englishtown a couple of years back during an Auto-X. No reason for it other than the driver's skill level and often their ego.......

I guess he (owner) must really feel :

A) Proud that he showed those college kids what REAL power was all about
B) Like a Putz because he showed those college kids what REAL power can do in the hands of someone less skilled.
C) That he's got more money than brains, but the scales are starting to tip the other way...

In the comments section they said the throttle got stuck. It went into the drink at full throttle. :(

This particular one costs $200k...here's the math...

$120k (for the initial purchase/delivery)
+$80K (to fix/restore it)
-------

Let's get away from dissin' on the poor guy.

I feel bad for him, especially seeing that the typical tow truck driver looks like he is gonna do more damage to the car than the accident did. Seen it happen too many times to too many friends' cars, and trucks.

Better luck next time, Bill
