Hahahaha, this is supposed to be a "dream car". I don't think I'd ever thinkg about fuel efficiency when choosing a dream car.

Also, if you were able to buy a $40,000 USD car, don't you think you'd be able to afford gas?

Is that not just a Holden or something? Looks a lot like the new GTO. Regardless, don't really like any of those. :?

Acutally it's the Holden's Mornaro (GTO) competitor in Aussiewonderland.

Both of them are into racing just like you can see in Race Driver 2

I know cars are hyper expensive there because of taxes but is it like that for everything imported?

Are your salaries a lot higher so you can buy the same things?

Sadly, no. Salaries are still the same. To own a car, we borrow heavily from the banks and have to pay off the car for 7-10 years.
