Its about 81000 USD for the mods Not 500,000. Reading comprehension people.
Saqar Khudairy Jan 26, 2013
Are you guys dumb? It's 3 million yen already and the package is only extra 500 yen. The car is already expensive is china. It used to cost around $500k and now it's $600k. Perfectly logical for a Lambo limited edition
Alex Medvedev Jan 26, 2013
Ya that's crazy little mod for that much?! You can ebay all the shit for about 25000$
Jason Brown Jan 26, 2013
The taxes make up most of it.

Or they meant sl63
Nicolas Blake Mullen Jan 26, 2013
They**
Nicolas Blake Mullen Jan 26, 2013
I think what they meant was they took the sl65 body, then dropped the old V8 into it so try can reduce the weight. It was worded horribly, but I think that's what they meant.
Liam Day Jan 26, 2013
Ya and it has over 600 horsepower not 418

More specifically, Trump said Obama would sell Jeep to China if he was re-elected. Which shows just how much of a liar and/or idiot he really is.
Jason Brown Jan 27, 2013
Since some of the German cars are assembled in China and we are all aware of that, we check the VIN number before buying German car to insure they are manufactured and assembled in Germany. Audi VIN starts with WAU. Manufacturing standards are differ
Haoliang Li Jan 27, 2013
And fuel is twice as expensive in China, so there's no market for pick-ups.
Haoliang Li Jan 27, 2013
Seriously, guys. The huge taxes are on Imported cars. Those Mercedes are made in China, so it's only 70k for a C300. And Chinese people don't drive trucks because they are considered farmer's car and they consume lots of fuel.
Will Will Jan 27, 2013
A girls' car) while the a7 looks so much nicer.
Will Will Jan 27, 2013
And our 911 has a respectable 67 litres, so which means we refill abt 50+ to 60 litres at the pump each time. It does exceed a hundred dollars, but not by much. Also, a audi tt costs more than a a7??? I dont even like the tt one bit (still looks like
Will Will Jan 27, 2013
And 75 litres for a fuel tank is big. The fuel tank capacity of our family car is only 50 litres+10 litres reserve, which means we probably refuel about 40 to 45 litres each time we go to the pump.
Will Will Jan 27, 2013
AMG edition?!! I can see why his costs $400k. He probably paid an extra $50k for that AMG edition, and even more for optional extras.
Jason Brown Jan 27, 2013
He has the E300 with AMG edition. He told me it cost around $400k. Sometimes the pricing doesn't make any sense here either. The Audi TT cost more than the A7 here by around 10k. 2 door cars are taxed more here.
Jason Brown Jan 27, 2013
That's a lot of taxes! It cost around $150 per tank. My car holds 75 liters. The regular fuel is just under $2 per liter and the premium fuel is around $2.30 per liter. Do your math and you can see the fuel cost is over $150 per tank.
Will Will Jan 27, 2013
And the COE(thats what the $65k to $75k tax is called) is based on engine size in cc( engine below 1600cc: abt $65k, above 1600 cc: abt $75k), but i'm not sure that applies to road tax, although it probably does.
Will Will Jan 27, 2013
And how did your fill up cost $150? Our fuel prices hover at abt SGD$2 and our fill ups never go past SGD$100, even in our 911 carrera gts.
Will Will Jan 27, 2013
$400k seems a bit too much for a e300, unless he ticked all the optional extras. A e300 should cost abt $300k here, $400k is base s class territory. Besides, a 911 costs abt $400k here, so it doesnt make sense for a e300 to cost abt$400k as well.
Jason Brown Jan 27, 2013
You guys have the engine taxes based on CC size every year like we do? How is the gas prices? Ours recently dropped below $2 per liter. Was happy to pay only $150 to fill up my car the other day.
Jason Brown Jan 27, 2013
Will, from what my friend tells me, who owns a small business there. His Benz E300 cost him almost $400k after all taxes and fees. My A6/C7 here cost around 80k after taxes but cost a bit over 330k where you are. I'm glad I don't live there...

@ashton i'll tell you what's worse. How would you like to live in a country that has NO CORVETTE, NO MUSTANG, NO CAMARO, NO CHALLENGER, NO CHARGER, AND NO CADILLAC(with the exception of 1 cadillac i spotted in my 18 years of life)?
Will Will Jan 27, 2013
@ tyler a lot actually. We still have traffic jams :) But cars here are considered as big ticket assets/property so people here spend a large part of their savings buying a car.
Ashton Summers Jan 26, 2013
@ Will Will. A C200 for $165k? Not sure what's worse. That or Armageddon. That's when a black market makes good sense.
Atanas Spasov Jan 26, 2013
After reading about all the taxes, I'm glad to live In the USA. I could get a stock jeep gc SRT8 for $60,000 and then there is only 8% sales tax.
Tyler Tarbox Jan 26, 2013
Wow that's a lot of taxes. What % of people even own a car there?
Will Will Jan 26, 2013
Ok...my bad, its not 150% or 110%, it's 100% of car value + another 20% of car value, which makes 120% of car value worth of tax paid for all cars sold here. And not forgetting the abt $65k to $75k of tax on top of it. Sorry for the conflicting info.
Will Will Jan 26, 2013
And about the 110% tax, its now been changed to 150%, so good luck buying a car here.
Will Will Jan 26, 2013
So if anyone dares call us a supercar haven...think again. It's the 1% of the 1% that owns these cars, since they're the only ones that can pay all the taxes.
Will Will Jan 26, 2013
Oh, and that doesn't mean we are excused from congestion charges. If you're unlucky you may end up paying us$4 in charges to get to work, and another us$4 to get back. Some pay even more.
Will Will Jan 26, 2013
To give an estimate, a base mercedes c200 will cost us$165k, and i dont even know if that includes the $75k tax.
Will Will Jan 26, 2013
on top of that, you pay abt another us$65k to us$75k, and that is before any road tax or emissions tax.
Will Will Jan 26, 2013
Basically, any car imported into singapore(which means all cars sold here, singapore does not make cars) are valuated, then charged a 110% tax of the value of each car.
Will Will Jan 26, 2013
I live in singapore, so i can give you a detailed account of the taxes.
Jason Brown Jan 26, 2013
If you this is bad, Singapore is terrible with the taxes...
