The $40,000 is based
on forecasted MSRP. That means that they took the low 30's number that has been forecasted and went from there. Factor in the paint job (which we already know is expensive), plus all the extras we know will be in there. Add in the collectibility factor and sure, it would be at least
40k. The 40k number is only relevant in terms of taxes. So, anyone who wins this has to pay prize taxes on $40,000. I wouldn't look too much into this when it comes to the pricing of our own Camaros.
