The company is currently taking orders and expects final pricing to come in at roughly 100,000 euros (approximately $125,315).
No thanks.

I still wish a 5.3 was a factory option on the Solstice/Sky. I'd own one if it were.

For 120k you think they might redo the interior instead of just wrapping it in leather. For 60-70k this car would be a lot more interesting (not that I can afford that either). I will say that at least it looks better than the solstice.

"The Tauro V8 Spider is based on the chassis of a Pontiac Solstice but gets a 6.2-liter LS3 V-8 engine sourced from GM." Assuming this is why they refer to it as a Pontiac. It's kinda cool but too expensive.

So the chassis from a $20k car and the motor from a $60k car. Equals a $120k car? Even if each one is built by hand in top secret basements. I don't see how its getting a price tag the same size as a zr1. Beautiful car. Hideous price tag.
