I saw a BR-110 in my town with that color and engine tranny combo, i didn't really like the way it looked, but that was just me. I cannot comprehend that price tag.

That's a beautiful ride, but IMO not worth anywhere close to $225k (even if it did cost far more to build). Hell, for $165k, Julian at Global LR can build me a US-legal 2012-spec Defender with the 510hp Range Rover Supercharged engine. I'd love to know how much the soft top alone costs...

Keith, best of luck with the sale!

The price of a G65 is WTF in spades. Think about it it. For one G65, you could have a G63 AMG and a Ferrari 458 Italia!

The truck is worth what ever someone is willing to pay for it. Someone will pay it. There is an ass for every seat...

So confused by this statement - are you agreeing or disagreeing with him? It was done back in 2010. ECR's billable hours at the rate they charge(d), plus all of the parts they bought, fabricated, etc. you'd better believe ECR made money on it, and that it cost the customer more than $225k back in 2010 when they got the bill (especially considering the purchase of the 110 to begin with).

I think he's under the impression that Copley had it built to sell. Which I'm pretty sure isn't the case.
