And so the gouging begins -Challenger pricing over MSRP

Ebay link

Lets see what happens..

The vin is registered to a Chrysler minivan.. so its not valid.. This is probably someone who has a place in line trying to sell thier order slot.

The Camaro won't be quite as bad at release since there will be more of them offered. But in that first month or two with people wanting to be the first in their area to have one

He stated clearly: "This is how much over MSRP you are willing to pay."
Never in a million years would I spend that much...
Already this bloke that bid wants to spend 47k on a Challenger; wtf?

I'm sure we're going to see some markups that high when the Camaro comes out. I don't think it will be as bad, since the Challenger will already be out and the Camaro will not have a limited initial release, but I'm sure someone will try to gouge the price that much.

Well the first year will bring money in the future if its preserved.. they will be limited in quantity and plated (the 08 models will get a number plate in the dash).. that being said a lot of the dodge guys are pissed because basically yes it will be released.. but not really to the general public.. so in reality the challenger really isn't coming out till 2009.

Double posting!!!

Update - Some orders have gone through for the people who put down deposits to get in line.. and unbelievably some dealers are actually sticking to their MSRP ONLY guarantee. So it is possible if you have a good dealer!

Oh and only options for the 09 model are Performance tires, Power sunroof, and the Mygig entertainment/nav system.

Yeah, that's factoring in everything almost. Destination charges, and the gas-guzzler tax of (I think) $2100.

yep yep, they have to list it that way, the tax is indeed $2100.00 (which off hand is more than any other SRT8 which slide in at 1300)

Below is the formula that is used and depending on the result depends on what the tax is. You must score 22.5MPG or more to be exempt from the tax. The tax also excludes vehicles classified as light trucks or business use vehicles.

(1/(.495/city MPG + .351/highway MPG))+.15 = Result

And the tax chart..

at least 22.5 No tax
at least 21.5, but less than 22.5 $1000
at least 20.5, but less than 21.5 $1300
at least 19.5, but less than 20.5 $1700
at least 18.5, but less than 19.5 $2100
at least 17.5, but less than 18.5 $2600
at least 16.5, but less than 17.5 $3000
at least 15.5, but less than 16.5 $3700
at least 14.5, but less than 15.5 $4500
at least 13.5, but less than 14.5 $5400
at least 12.5, but less than 13.5 $6400
less than 12.5 $7700

Gah more off topic.. here is the PDF for 2006 listing what vehicles required a GG tax. Link

Bud Lite and the Camaro5 forums present:

Real Men of Genius
(Real Men of Genius)

Today we salute you, Mr. "Pay $20,000 over MSRP for a third rate pony Car"
(Mr. "Pay $20,000 over MSRP for a third rate pony Car")
Some might consider $40,000 a steep enough starting price, but you know that numbered plaque on the dash makes it worth so much more.
(Its a special edition!)
Nothing says "Smart Consumerism" like paying thousands of dollars in premiums for a car you can get at a discount a year or two from now.
(Oh I just can't wait)
Your car may be put to shame by the Camaro, but at least you'll have a full year of glory to yourself before it comes out.
(Please don't steal my moment in the sun)
So crack open an ice cold Bud Lite, Oh over-devoted Mopar fan. You may have no money left for gas, but at least your car will look cool sitting in the garage
(Mr. "Pay $20,000 over MSRP for a third rate pony Car")

Please drink responsibly.

I see it. And I like it!! Excellent Job!

Change the target from Challenger to Mustang, and then send it to Scott! He'll probably get a kick out of it!
