costs US$1.35 mil (all tax and plates paid) in my country, likely US$ 650-700k in the states.
i'll have detailed specs later.
besides the $$$, it isnt that exclusive to get, i mean i can get one by 2015, start delivering by late 2014.
Thanks for the Info..sound great - but what Im a bit puzzled is the dry weight...in normal specification that would probably add up to 1700Kg - or in best case 1675 (as you mention "lower than 1675)..what Im trying to say that the 918 will be about 300Kg heavier than a GT2RS or similiar 997 GT variant. 300Kg is a hell of a lot...
Just for comparison, an Italian Magazine did a test of the new aventador..it couldnt be really faster than a stock 997 GT2 (no RS)...simply because its so heavy..1800Kg..
