Campagnolo Super Record: the Prices!

Campagnolo "Super Record" has been re-introduced, for Campagnolo's 75th anniversary, after an absence of more than 20 years . As in the past it is once again the top of the line. And, so is the pricing which is really astonishing. A gruppo, minus hubs, headset and seatpost, is approximately $3,200.00.

The individual component prices are yet more staggering. Take the carbon crankset. Price $999 EXCLUDING the external cups which are sold separately.
Shifters, $625 (those slots are nice though):

The new cassettes are very expensive, especially considering that they are a mix of steel (5 cogs) and Ti (6 cogs). Price $470.

We should be grateful that Campagnolo hasn't announced the Super Record bottle cage as the now downstream Record is already priced at $160. When they get around to it maybe it will be $200?

Campagnolo was nice enough to send the best of Season's Greetings to everyone. Much appreciated, now please do something about these incredible prices.
