I may be one of the few here to think so, but $2.5M is a cheap way of recreating the GTO experience, assuming a bolt-for-bolt replication. I say this from the perspective of having driven a real GTO as my daily driver for a number of years. I didn't buy the car for its financial value or the impression it made on others, but for the sheer excitement the car generated each time I turned and pushed the ignition key. I haven't heard anyone bemoan the fate of the SWB body that was sacrificed for the Breadvan. Yes, that car raced and the modification was done in period resulting in an enhanced value. However, if we consider what value there is in pleasing oneself--as opposed to concours judges, portfolio-istas or theorists of all sorts--it may be seen that a sincere duplication can have a great value to the one who gets to drive it.
