Cars down here are expensive. Things like import duties and luxury car tax keep prices high.
In the late 80’s, I seem to remember seeing new Testarossas go for close to $500,000au ($380,000us or 210,000stg) and near new ones get up to $40,000 more (given the waiting list at the time).
These days, I’ve seen mid 80’s models got for as little $120,000au ($91000us or 50,000stg). The 90 model I am considering is $170,000. I think that is fair in this country although I have not seen it in person yet.
I realize that US and UK (and probably most other places) are much cheaper for all types of cars and trust me we are all jealous.
As for the 512TR and M models, I have only seen one of each for sale. From memory both were around the same price – over $300,000! I sat in an M model a few weeks back and just didn’t see the value.
As for cricket… I gave up on all that when all those rumors of bribery and cheating came out a few years back. Not long before then my father and I were at a match and he kept insisting both teams were deliberately dropping catches and letting fours through. It all made sense. On top of that, I think a lot of us are sick of hearing about Shane Warne’s rooting around.
Go Webber I guess!
