Default $169,900, final price confirmed

$169,900 is a go,

if your in the "under 100k" camp, you will be disappointed.

Let the madness ensue......





And to toss this in, Updated sketch, posted on another thread but the initial catastrophe I made is the one thats making the roundabouts,

Lol I AM out!!!!! good luck GM, Zerv you lost your mind, if your correct GM has lost their mind. Not buying a Chevrolet for 169k. I can buy a preowned 2017 Mclaren 570S for 145k with less than 4K miles and with a 3 year unlimited mile warranty. I can buy an Audi R8 for under that price that is a hand built car with a hand built V10. Even the Viper was hand built and came in just at 100k. I know many argue with me and say hand built doesn’t matter sorry assembly line car coming out of BG is no way comparable, even the dealer net work can’t compete, sorry it matters for 95% of the buyers at that price point.

For 170k, I certainly hope it looks as good as or better than a 488 with performance to match.

Really? And what do you have to say in regards to Ford and their GT car? Troves of people lining up and hoping to be one the lucky few to land an allocation and drop over 500k?

(Not saying this vehicle will be on par with the GT, nor will it be a halo model)

For the top of the line 1000hp car, that price would be good. I see the base mid-engine car having a base price of $65,000

I'm not doubting you on this as I have no way to know one way or the other, but do you have a source you can provide... a link?

If it looks good and performs good I’m willing to pay that much, but the camo cars are not inspiring confidence in me.
