    Not so much I think. The Euro cars also have as standard the Z51 package and adaptive suspension, which cost $7k extra. A euro spec C8 in the US will run over $75K plus state sales taxes.

    The na 6.2 V8 engine is a gem, but after owning this generation of SL and the later R231 SL63, I think at this price the later R231 is a far better buy, for around the same money now on an Irish...
