  • Wrecked Birkin in Sacramento

    Does anyone know the story behind this wrecked birkin. Turned up in a salvage auction after
    being written off.

    I think it was this car:

    Sad end to what looked like a nice car, hope no one was hurt. Looks as if the Tillet seats and sequential box along with the electronic dash have been removed.

    The Duratec might be of some value. As for the rest...

    Agreed - obviously a MAJOR accident. Hope the occupant(s) survived.

      Looks like a rollover on grass, if I got to speculate. Not good with the low roll bar. But still amazing how such a tube frame holds together. At least the cockpit stayed in shape but I don't want to know what happens to flailing arms or heads in such a case.

        I'm thinking it's a T-bone on the passenger side....

        There are some small differences from the TX car, but more similarities.

        IF this is the TX car the buyer seems to have gotten a great deal on a built Duratec!

        Wondering where the induction system has gone?

          Just read on the Birkinowners' forum that this happened last November when the driver had the choice between a deer and oncoming traffic. Subsequently he lost control and rolled a few times off road, hitting a barrier. At least he walked away with minor shoulder injuries (from his racing harness).

            Looks like it has a quaife transmission....that ought to be worth something!

              The way the engine is sitting it looked like the block and transmission could be busted.

              If intact someone got a bargain Otherwise they overpaid.
