But at the same time, nobody bought those cars specifically because they had a monocoque. It was definitely a notable characteristic, but nothing that made their buyers pony up the cash. They each had something special about them independent of the monocoque... the Carrera GT was Porsche's first hypercar, the SLR was co-developed with McLaren as an easy-to-drive, comfortable, slushbox 200 mph missile, and the Enzo was the usual limited-production Ferrari hypercar that is coveted by Ferrari fanatics.

But if you are going to shout about this car being overpriced, there's a long list of others costing much more than this does, offering similar technology.
