Pricing?  We can't seem to find that information just yet but it's safe to say that it's going cost an arm and a leg.  Actually, word on the street is it'll run you about $10,750; so maybe an arm, leg and left ear.  However, if you're the type to put this kind of muscle to work, you'll likely have the budget for it.
