I don't know about the prices, I doubt very much that it'll come out as $120,000 for the ///M6, though sports cars/coupe come out to be more expensive than a four door, but it's still a little too much money over the ///M5

Re: M6 Price

If you take into account the fall of the US dollar the price sounds quite reasonable. Prices of some cars in the US are extreamly low compared to Europe. The Porsche Cayenne and the E55 are two examples of models that have prices that are around 30% less expensive in the US. If the current exchangerates hold or if the dollar falls even more you are probably in for much higher prices on european cars.

Are they kidding? They're saying $120,000 U.S. for the M6. Doesn't make sense compared with the M5. :eek:

Don't put too much faith in that. European prices often do not indicate U.S. prices. For example, the UK Audi S4 is about £3,000 less than the UK BMW M3. In the U.S., the S4 is only about $1,000 less than the M3.

Part of the difference probably is but that didnt stop them from being equally priced in Europe and in the US when the conversion rate was 1 USD= 1,1 EUR. Letting the price in the US stay at the same level will mean low profits for the manufacturers. I don't think you will see a giant one time price rises but probably a continuous increase over time that might be more accentuated at modelchanges(the 911 is up for one soon).

I think that 30% premium reflects European VAT more than currency exchange rates. An M5 or M6 over $100K will make a 996TT more of a bargain. hmmm
