I bet if you sent them an email and asked them about the price it is $1,950 not $19,500. Looks like a typo to me!

Do you really thing anyone would pay that much cash for that thing?? You could make a full scale car into a R/C car for less. New era made a big MT with a gas engine and it cost under $5000. I still say it's a typo. If it's not what a joke! $19,500 is insane even for me!LOL

While you're at it, ask if it's really FOUR wheel drive.

I like this one better from there and it does not cost as much.

I'd imagine it's so expensive because it's so large and completely custom. I'm sure they don't have any of them just laying around. They probably build them (by hand) per order. If they were to mass produce them, then the price would drop. But the demand isn't high enough to justify the tool and die costs. That thing is for the filthy rich who "just have to have" the biggest and most expensive toys.

Why is a Lamborghini so expensive?
You could build a faster car for much less, but it wouldn't be a Lamborghini. It is the elite.
