Why not just send this?..


This is the best on offer and it's still under $90k.. Makes bitters attempt look laughable.

Wait wait wait wait wait...$175,000 for basically a Pontiac whatever their mid size sedan is called, but with like 60 more hp?

There are no smilies to convey how hard I'm jesting at this.

No, it's an uglified version of the LWB version of the Commodore (which is what the G8 is) called the Caprice which looks a million time better. The car Slick posted is way better, it's the HSV Grange and has an LS2 and MRC.

Let me make a comment on this, as being the first European in this thread.

Mmmmmm A Bitter Vero doesn't sound expensive, the car doesn't look expensive it doesn't perform extraordinary. The only 2 positive things about the Bitter are that it's a company with some history (although that's not much to brag about) and the car will be produced in small numbers, which makes it exclusive. But ... why would you want a exclusive car that is actually a ordinary GM product.

There is one other advantage, the car which it's based on isn't sold in Europe.
But it's cheaper to import a HSV or something like that.

Nope i can't see that this is going to be a big success for Bitter. Sorry

History which nobody knows about. So the only good point is that it is exclusive (if that's a good point).

Exclusivity is always good, as long as the car you begin with is good as well.

which it is...but $175,000 good, with an ugly face? not so sure.
with that money, you could buy a HSV GTS, take it to CSV, drop LS7 in, and then have change to import it to europe and buy a daily hatchback

The car is no dud, Just because bitter made it look like it, It's actually a cheaper competitive car alternate to Mercedes and BMW luxo's.
And it holds it's own easy..

However it's not worth that price for some extra leather.

Erm, there is no $175,000 BMW and the only $175k Mercedes (IIRC) is the SL65 and S65...which have much, much more power than this. So alternative? Yes, Cheaper? Not by a long shot...
