Must be.....I went looking at the G8 GT's and prices were the same. MSRP for the G8 GT was identical to what you showed above (sunroof, Sport Package).

Why does the V6 cost so much? I'm only asking because this would significantly impact Camaro pricing since the G8 is basically a sister car.

That's Canadian pricing

I think the surprise is the closeness between US and Canadian pricing. Am I right, Canadians; 3whiterag?

My question is, where are they going to build all these things? The plant in Australia is at capacity as is, and there's a lingering doubt that it can supply enough G8's for the US alone, with the hit that this car is. now it's going to be offered in Canada? Who's building them!?!

Canadian pricing on cars is highway robbery. I'm seriously thinking of importing my 5th gen in from the States.

I paid $32k for mine with everything but the "sport" package. With the 8 cyl. being only $2k more than the 6 cyl. it didn't make any sense to get the 6. (Plus you get 361 horses under the hood!)
