Car costs in 1986 (U.S. versus West Germany)

From How to Import A European Car (1985).  Are those price differences for real?  If so, then the manufacturers, dealerships, and Uncle Sam made a killing.  No wonder there were so many gray market cars.

Can't really say, as I was only three at the time, but it doesn't seem credible. Seems like an ad for a grey importer. :)
