I am disappointed in its price too. For that price u can a Carrera GT and an even more wicked V-10. It was locked in what seemed like perpetual development. Really sweet sounding exhaust but not at 2x the original price target.
I could be wrong but I was under the understanding that the $375,000 was correct and that the dealership was holding the titles for two years to keep people that want to flip the car for profits away. I thought at the end of the two years, the owner would receive the title. I read that Lexus did this to make sure the car did not end up going down the price gouging path.There was no "Original" price taget ever set, only rumors. To my understanding, all are Pre-sold already, and will be going for much more that whatever the MSRP ends up at.
Rumor has it LEXUS will lock in the buyer to sell back the vehicle to LEXUS if they want to sell it, not allow to sell to the general public. Similar to what Ferrari did/does with their vehicle's.
please lurk more and post less. Cadillac doesnt use the ZR-1 engine in the CTS-V. and its already been announced that it will be v-8 in the GS-F and has different ecu adjustments that produce 450hp compared to the IS-F at 416hp.I hope it sells. More importantly, I hope that Lexus uses that engine in another car the way Cadillac uses the ZR1 Vette engine in the cts-v. I would be tempted to trade up for a v-10 GSF.
