Check out what just popped out of the Aero Toy Store Collection in Ft. Lauderdale, FL? That, dear friends, is as rare a race car as you can find on the planet - or any other planet, for that matter.

Straight out of the year 2000, this rare-as-a-pink-diamond Cadillac Northstar LMP with chassis number "0LMP00005" is up for sale with a going price of - mandatory suspenseful long pause - $175,000. Don’t be dismayed though. Did we mention that it’s extremely rare? Also, it’s got a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter Northstar V8 engine that produces over 570 horsepower and was built specifically by General Motors for the two events: the American Le Mans Series and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Run down the list, if you must. Rare? Check. Powerful and fast? Check. Racing history? Check.

Sounds more and more like it’s worth the $175,000 price tag it comes with, doesn’t it?

The car performed horribly and was sold sans proprietary ECU making it undrivable with its original powerplant. Must admit I’d love to own it.

It was good to see Caddy showing some confidence back then, but it also seemed like they were burning cash awfully casually, considering how shoddy some of their core products were.

That was also the R&S chassis... this ebay Caddy LMP actually challenged the Audi R8 & Panoz during the 2002 ALMS season.

I already know that its not street legal I just thought that by buying this the owner could take it to the streets... I was just wondering.

A 2001 LMP Caddy sold for $159,500.00 at Barrett-Jackson in 2009. The asking price here seems a bit high!
