I've had a couple instances when people come up to me and ask me what the R8 cost. What's the general feeling about answering such a question, which seems to me to be a bit forward.

Why is it forward? It can be easily looked up.

Just shrug a little and say "about 120". It seems like the least jerky thing to say. I always feel like they are just generally curious.

I ALWAYS say 1000.00 per month and leave it at that.(perfect answer for the girls). Even though I paid cash. Actual price 145k plus the normal extra stuff. I have told many : about 120 K though so as not to ruffle feathers any more.:)

I mostly say I'm just the driver and taking it to the car wash. I guess it depends on who it is though. I never ask people what they paid, so it seems a little rude when people ask.

Good question gazza1, I always wondered what other owners say.

I say it was a cheaper than the divorce a mid life crisis affair would have cost

It definitely was more than my first house.

Thanks for sharing -- it seems the price question is common.

On the US pricing question....has anyone seen the actual 2010 pricing for the V10?

My dealer still doesn't have it. I just hope my final price for the car I configured comes in under 200K :) !!

That is the question I was afraid to ask . The 2010 pricing of the V 10 FULLY specced out.( ground effects,exhaust,custom color) If I have to ask how much...maybe I can't afford it (RIGHT now). I envy the sound the V10 Gallardo/with exhaust kit, makes.

I usually joke it off...

"If I tell you that, I'd have to kill you"... other wise, I just say "they start at around..."

Just answer what you paid for. How hard can it be?

What if you have memory problems and have forgotten what price you paid, you tell them you've forgot and you get hit with a bat for being rude! :eek:

Telling people you forget can get you in a whole heap of trouble. I was in Mexico a while back and minding my own business, when this REALLY unattractive hooker came up to me and asked my name. I told her I forgot, and she went ballistic - cursing and yelling at me. I slinked outta there real quick before she called her friends and "manager"

tell 'em: "about the cost of 2 Corvettes." Most non-car people can relate to that...and will probably think you paid too much! If they don't have any idea what a Corvette is or what it costs, they don't really deserve a serious answer anyway.
