      the Base price is around 60 large so even loaded with all options is still about $65-70k. Less with 'a few hundred miles' on the Odo.

        Don't forget the very common 'market adjustment' these things get. My friend had to pay a $5000 fee for his and he felt he got a good deal.

            Very true.

            I've PDI'd GT350's and a GT350R. The GT350's sticker in the mid $60K range and the GT350R stickers for mid to high $80k range.
            The article doesn't distinguish whether or not it's a 350 or a 350R....you can't see the fender badge in the pic to tell.

            It seems highly unusual to me for a dealer to keep a GT350R just hanging around the dealership because of its rarity, and if it was MY car I would have picked it up the day it arrived.

                Probably. Depending on the amount of damage, could be a total write off, or they may authorize the dealership to repair it.

                A few years ago our dealership had a brand new Grabber Blue GT500 stolen from behind our dealership. The thieves hooked a chain up to the rear axle and dragged the car about a mile down the road, dragging it in reverse until they finally gave up on it.
                We found the car the next morning badly damaged. Just about every panel on the car except the roof had damage. One of the front control arms was snapped and the front wheel was at a 90 degree angle. The underside of the car was severely damaged.

                Anyway, the insurance company paid for the car but we sold it to a guy who wanted to heavily modify it. While we were repairing it our body shop installed a wide body kit on the rear end. Ugly as sin, but with the decreased value of the car, seemed to make sense to the owner.
