Focus Im Thinking About Buying! *pics*

So Im looking for a focus, an SVT Focus to be more specific. And I ran across this. I think its one helluva deal, but you guys chime in here, you know these cars better than I do... Its apparently loaded! Jackson Racing SC, Nitrous, Interior upgrades, suspension work, etc... And heres the best two parts...
Its only got 3,280 miles on it!!!


And apparently it was a magazine car and was never driven, just built, showed, and stored. Its crazy!





Heres the pictures of the car:









Interior:








Hidden Nitrous!!!


Engine:

I've seen it on ebay. Personally, the nitrous scares me.

Nitrous can be dangerous if you're in a collision. Might want to check also that she will pass emissions with all those mods done.

but hands down, that is one loaded car... unless someone is deceiving you in some way, like if it was in a crash and has a bent frame and got repaired.. etc. I'd still get the Carfax on it or whatever- but I don't know anything about Carfax, so who knows if htat might even tell you anything.

I guess it's kind of sad that in this day and age I am more likely to assume it was in an accident that got covered up to the buyer than that it's actually a good deal lol.

how much is the asking price though?

The seller wants $12k, but I'm hoping for cheaper. Not that it's not a deal already, but I really don't want to spend $12k on an 8 year old car.

I would never spray that thing with the juice, it's too risky. I tried that with my Mach 1 and I didn't like it. Anyways, I want this car for the great condition, low miles, & all around full package with a cool history! Honestly, I'm still going to pull it apart and slap a turbo kit on it, so... The JRSC just doesn't make enough power for me. It will pass smog in my state, it just won't be enough for me to keep it.
