Yah, you'll get it for below MSRP. Hardly any of the higher performance cars go for MSRP, they're just too expensive.

It'll go down 15-20% under MSRP within a year... Just like every other Cobra (especially the 2003/2004).

I wasn't being sarcastic. It won't go for MSRP. It will sell for less.

For those of us who are unable to read simple numbers, the car is being released June 2006. That would be NEXT year, not this year.

Yeah, I know what you mean about honest mistakes. After I submitted the post I went and looked at a calender to make sure what year it is. Old age sucks.
