Of course they could always counter with:

We've got the Skyline

OR

We've got the Zonda

I could go on ... but you get the point.

Good-freakin'-night!

They've got everything on it! Now I'm worried it will be priced more than I can afford. Anyone have an idea when pricing will be announced?

It's about time that we get cooler cars than the rest of the world - I mean, we have the cheaper gas, wider roads, and in a way, lower cost of ownership. Wider roads or not doesn't matter, but the other 2 are keys to owning a car and keeping it - if I'm making the same amount of money here now and live in Europe, I don't think I can afford to own a car anyway. Now, where am I going to find the $50K CDN (remember, I'm no Yankee)????

Doesn't most of europe have additional taxes on cars with motors over 2.0L ?? The tax was created as an incentive for people to drive more fuel efficient cars.

I imagine that is why we are the only ones with a 2.5T And I don't mind one bit!
