I also wouldn't ignore the possible benefits of the Sauber aerodynamics. The larger air pressure relief vents on the sides shows they tested this (at least in the wind tunnel) at high enough speeds to know they needed more relief of the air pressure building up in the engine compartment. That's actually the biggest area of drag and frontal resistance believe it or not. Those aero pieces in the front show them working at redirecting more of the air up and to the side. This thing is probably faster than the HP number would indicate, and more than just being lighter too. No telling what it cost to pay Sauber to do all that development either. Probably part of why they're charging so much. Nothing like having a Formula 1 engineering and development team putting in time on your car.

They seek me here, they seek me there...

I think the straight conversion is around $300k, so I can't see it being less than $350k as there are other better proven cars for the money at that price point.

I'd still prefer a 4C personally(~AU$100k). But is the AU$300 price tag equal to the EU price?

You'd have t o factor in dealer markup, import duties, LCT, etc....

@Papa, i think i've asked you before, but are you in Perth? (I think of Barbagallo anytime I see your nickname)

No worries (I think you might have replied before). Barbagallo was a race car driver out west(Perth), and now-a-days, "Barbagallo" is one of the major car dealers in Perth (which sells Alfa, Maserati, Fiat, Jags, etc) Wiki Link

Cheers
