If i'm correct the $800 includes 19% of VAT (sales tax).
For orders outside of Europe this will be deducted.
The price is somewhat higher as most cars because it pretty much includes every option you ever want to throw at it.
It is extremely lightweight, comes with Titanium screws, ceramic bearings.
It is a car for serious racers, not for bashers. And most serious racers will put around $100-200 worth of options in their car anyway, so I think the higher price tag is justified.
The bad thing is, that I have a brand new NT1 EC and 09 sitting here, otherwise I would be going for the Capricorn car.
