Its got to be out of our reach since there are only 15 being made and there is no way there are sufficient economies of scale even if they build a few hundred of them. Presumably they are working on engines supplied by someone like AMG that is the case for manufacturers such as Pagani etc... A number of other components must be sourced from large manufactures that do benefit from scale, but still, all that R&D, chassis and body parts have to be build from scratch and that is expensive. I guesstimate well over $750,000. We will see. A nice car and would be wonderful to see how it performs against the best of the best such as the Pagani F1 and the like. Its not all about power as we all know, for instance the extremely powerful Koenigsegg CCX with over 800bhp posted much worse time at Nurburgring than did the 602 bhp Pagani Zonda F, or the 630bhp Maserati MC12.
