Wasn't there a thread recently about the cost being related to the high
expense of  assembling a car by hand? As I recall there were two teams hand
building urq's at the rate of 3 cars per day total. That can't be a cheap
production line.

$35,000? The 4000q has basically the same drivetrain other than the turbo
engine, right? Was the turbo engine really worth a $28,000 premium? I mean
both are typ85 cars with quattro. It's not like the body was that much more
expensive to make, they made the CGT which is essentially the same body
without flares for less than the price of a 4000q. Seriosuly, somebody
educate me.
