Wouldn't surprise me if they were over $100K by the time there actually on sale here in Australia.
You may be able to buy a second hand one after there made available for sale and they will probably be more expensive than the list price as the waiting list is so long.
Happens with brand new Ferraris as well if the waiting list is so long.
Not too sure about that. AR has a brand perception issue here in Australia. The only people who know they don't rust/fall apart whilst sitting still etc.. etc.. are the people who already own an AR. Just read the comments on any Australian car news web site when AR is mentioned and you'll see what I mean.
I think AR could face a pricing conundrum here. Price it too high and it could be out of reach for a lot of Alfisti.
I can afford to spend $120k (plus the additional $23k of tax - $7k stamp duty, $14k luxury tax and dealer charges) on an LE, but as much as I love AR and as much as I desire an LE, I won't do it if that is indeed the price.
Why? Well I'm sure nobody cares, but I'm tired of Australia being whacked unjustifiable markups when comparing prices to the UK (and the UK has 20% VAT) and other countries. I'm also tired of the car manufacturers peddling woeful excuses as to why their brand X is 30-100% more expensive here than overseas.
If the LE is $120k + on-roads, it will make it $30k more than the €60k Euro price (which includes 20% VAT).
In my eyes that will place AR's 4C firmly in the same gouging arena of Porsche/Maserati et al. I'm hopeful that it won't be the case as Fiat's and AR's are currently around the same price here as the UK..... But all will be revealed in 2014.
