Yep, my '10 was one of the 20 ACR Verts. I liked it but sold it for several reasons. Would rather get a coupe.
I've looked at the '10s, but they're not discounting them very steeply like the '09 I asked about ($20k rebate on 09s or something?)
Didn't realize there was much of a difference between 09 and 10, besides the 5th and 6th gears and shorter shifters?
Only 5th was changed for the 2010 ACR's, 6th is still 0.50. The shorter shifter, 5th gear, and the rear wing are different. Gurney flap and the wing end plates were changed, supposedly gained something like 6 MPH on the top end plus more stability.
Bernie must be sticking hard and fast to his prices on those 'Ring Vipers he's been carrying them a long time.
Shit dude, Baxter has a 2010 with the world challenge paint scheme with a couple of upgrades for 131K. The Toxic Orange 2010 ACR is priced the same as one of those ring cars. I think Johnny's earlier post about the 2010 ACR's going up in price could prove correct. Maybe Bernie's thinking the same thing.
I don't think he can move too much on his prices on those three remaing 'Ring cars, he had then sent to
Prefix for all the 'Ring badging and chotskies put on the so he's put more money into them as well.
However, that 'Ring record is going to fall sooner or later (probably by Lexus) and that won't help sell them.
Thanks for the info. Not wanting to spend over $90k (ideally more around $80k), which is why I was dismissing the '10s... I didn't think they'd come down that far on them. Plus, I'm not a good enough driver to notice a difference between an 09 and a 10!
