GT Pricing for NZ
Info in NZ is non existant. There is no car here that anyone has seen, there is no pricing except the GT is 'Indicatively priced' at NZ$80,000 ($20000 more than XR8) and GT-P NZ$90000 ($30000 more than XR8). At A$60000, the price in equivalent price in NZ with exchange rate at 0.94 is NZ$64000, so FNZ want $16000 for the sports wheel and premium sound, which are the 2 standard 'extras' for the NZ spec. I read an article about FPV wanting to match against HSV, and to launch as many cars on the road as possible. At this price it may kill FPV sales in NZ, which would be rather sad. There are hundreds of HSV's here, and so FPV have a lot of market to catch up - volume of presence on the road is a critical factor - the more 'out there' the GT is, the quicker it will take off. Realistically matching the price to HSV would accelerate that presence. Hope the 'indicative pricing' is set too high (XR8 IP was set at '$64,000 +' and came in at $61500, with standard prem sound. Keep fingers and toes crossed......
