I think the difference is that GM cared how many C7s and ZL1s it sold and did some stuff to keep cost in check. The Z/28 is so utterly uncompromising that I don't think GM cares whether it sells 10 or 1000. The tires, the brakes, the engine, the bodywork, the glass, etc., all that stuff is specific to the Z/28. It adds up if you can't share any of the R&D costs with other cars in the lineup. That's why I think it'll end up being $70-80K, unless GM plans to take a loss on every Z/28 it sells...
