If you can only afford a "very, very used one", then somehow it doesn't sound like you can really *afford* one. Don't worry about the selling price.
Are you ready to drop $6K (estimate) at the blink of an eye for an engine rebuild if something should go wrong?
I'm not saying your engine is about to blow up at that mileage, but when buying a performance car with so many miles you're taking a big risk
and you need to have some serious money set aside if things go wrong-- and something will go wrong.

Too many people have bought a used Lotus thinking they could afford the $500 a month payment only to get rid of the car down the line
when realizing they could not afford the car...
