Rainy day, nothing to do, so I went to look at some cars. Visited my
Audi dealer (nice S8 for $105K), Lexus to see the IS-F (pretty
impressive looking/performing machine). Then I visited my local
I asked about the GT-R and said I was interested. The salesman said
that he had some good news - of their allocation of three, he had one
for sale. I could take delivery in late September and could select my
desired colors/trim. My heart skipped *several*
beats before he told
me the bad news - the price carried a $30K charge over the MRP. IOW,
a $70K car for $100K. <gulp>
They'd give me $45k for my RS6 (if I traded it with the BBS LMs). As
rare as the RS6 was when I bought it in 03, I did not pay a premium on
the sticker price. In fact, I got it for less than the sticker.
At 70, I don't think there is a GT-R in my future. Too bad..........
