The amount of technology, R&D, and testing that was put into this car is insane. I test equipment for the military and I use testing items that are valued into the $500.000.00 to $800.000.00, and those are some of my most used items. When they said that the data test collection that's in the trunk came to $100.000.00, that doesn't include the stuff they have back at the office to either build that equipment or to process the data.
I would guess that each test day cost atleast around $25,000 to $45,000, add that up and it's crazy moeny spent on delivering a high quality product to us.
The only other orginizations that could come close to what GM has done to the ZL-1 are Pro race car teams...Or Speedster .
