It's probably 3-4 years old. Didn't have it too long before the secondary oil pump gave out, forcing the car into limp-home mode. I guess there's a second hi-pressure pump for lubricating the "cylinder" walls. Very exclusive pump, maybe over $1k just for the pump itself, and has potential to trash the entire engine. Apparently a common problem.
Scared me from ever considering one.
