5k: PRV V6 Power: 1991 Eagle Premier ES

What we have here today is an AMC built sedan packed full of sketchy advanced electronics from 25 years ago that uses a temperamental Audi transmission and a Renault V6 engine, and you should buy it.  What is this, Fear Factor?  Are you going to fill the car full of roaches and make me drive it in my underwear? It is like a Who’s Who of abandoned car components assembled by raving lunatics, but…drive one every day and you’ll be part of an exclusive club.  Find this 1991 Eagle Premier ES here on eBay currently bidding for $3,500 with 5 days to go. located in Salt Lake City, UT.  Tip from Mike F.

What you see on the page is a very Audi-esq looking car from the early 90s, but its elegant shape was designed by the ineffably talented Giorgietto Giugiaro.  It sort of looks like what you would get if you asked someone to draw a generic sedan from 1990.  Rumor has it that the drove nicely for the time, floating nicely over bumps, but tighter in the turns compared to a Cadillac.

The Premier uses the seldom seen longitudinal front-wheel-drive setup, with Renault 25 greasy bits on the underside for suspension and basic chassis dimensions.  Under the hood is a 3.0 liter PRV V6, the same engine found in yesterday’s DeLorean DMC-12.  Expect 150 horsepower and 171 ft-lbs of torque, which won’t be fast, but will be enough to push the 3000 lb chassis around.
