No, had not heard about it, but for some well-equipped GT's or GXP's wonder if the price would have been substantially higher all things being equal. Surely the fact that is was first G8 produced and sold at a Barret-Jackson auction significantly contributed to the selling price. They wouldn't even consider my G8 for entry into the auction much less drive it across the stage. Face palm.
