    meet the chief engineer of the C8. Interesting (and very polite) discussion about other exotic manufacturers at 48:40

    How can Ferrari charge $3K for a simple fluid service after this? I think their game is up.

    Peter Stevens sold their Elizabeth St stores for $31.5m

    That's the end of a significant bit of history for me

    that's been confirmed. First 2 years allocation sold out. I'm told $100K drive away for the "base" model - that will shake up the price gouging by Ferrari/Lambo/McLaren.

    Really? There was $150K bandied about last month; $100K is a bargain

    I suspect that $150K is the mid spec price (the US$80K car that Schmee tested) but even that's a bargain. Note that the base car gets full leather and is 2.9 seconds to 60mph (same as a Ferrari F8).

    Think about it, you pay $250K for a base model Audi R8, which is much slower, has been around for a long time and has massive depreciation.

    Of course, with the Vette you miss out on the Ferrari "lifestyle" - old men in tracky daks + chinese students whose Dad paid for the car :rolleyes:
