That's the "stealth grey" camo scheme. Under the hood is the eco-friendly electric motor from a clothes washer powered by 8 car batteries in the trunk and supported by extra strong springs. It's range is a bit short but will get you to the nearest Startens (what 2 coffee drinks costs at Starbucks). The bicycle pedals help you get up steep grades of 2-3%.

Primed and ready for your choice of color!

The NADA link is a nice touch.

According to that site my '92 is worth about $4000 less than that stunnning S3. Guess I bought the wrong year and color

In the UK, we would call that a 'shed'.

A shed? Would you explain the reference?

Shed = filthy, horrible, tatty, good place to keep chickens, etc. Applies to all crumbling, fast-food-wrapper filled, vehicles. Especially those whose thrashed interiors are filled with all the parts that have recently fallen off...oh, and the spare wheel, usually...
