It's development, research and materials charges.
There are a significant amount of different materials involved:
- thinner rear window = non production samples
- carbon hood - one off for short run productions
- carbon splitter - one off for short run productions
- carbon rockers - one off for short run productions
- carbon brakes
Then there's the hand-built LS7.
Each time a mfg. goes to a higher end production run, labor costs jump for R&D, build and skill
