Raaaaaaaaph. Staaaaaaaaahp. Seriously. The SS can be had for a bit over $40 grand. That is not German grade pricing. For what you get, it would cost $60k+ for a comparable E-Class or 5-Series. It's really starting to bug me that people expect this car to be priced the same as a Malibu or Impala when it really is so much more.
