Good Gawd ! !

I like it but for $155K AUD you can buy a base model HSV and build drop in your own 7.0L with even more power and have plenty of change left over to upgrade anything else on you'd prefer.

2002 Collector Edition Trans Am A4
2001 Tahoe 4wd
1979 10th Trans Am 4spd.
2011 Cadillac CTS-V A6

You could build a sleeper 427 G8 for wayless than that... LSX motor and aftermarket internals... hell you could keep your stock heads, intake and computer.

On the other hand it would be mising some stuff... like upgraded suspension, brakes and a warranty.

price

you guys get the G8 GT for just over 30k, we pay 45k for the SS. Working on that the W427 would probably be about 80k US.

80k sounds about right, if not a little more. The Z06 starts around 72k. So a G8 with a Z06 motor will probably be a little more.
