When you buy an expensive car, how much are you paying for the name and not the actual car itself, or the manpower to build it?

    That is a complex question. I would say that it varies, of course. But a lot of times the reason cheaper cars are cheaper is volume. They only make and sell so many lambos, so the cost to build one is higher than a Corolla. Of course they will sell them for whatever the market will bear, so if people are willing to spend more for the name, they'll set it at that price. Also, redesigns are expensive, so if the same model has been out for a while with only minor tweaks, the cost of that year's car might not be as much as the first year it was produced. Average it out over the lifespan of that model/trim and that changes the equation too.

    It also gets a lot more complex, because sometimes they borrow parts from each other (engine).

    there really needs to be an age limit here. Too many clueless 15 year olds.
