Or £2999, which is equivalent to $4759 in the UK. Still, on a positive note, that is a better comparison than when the 7D came out, as that was £1700 or around $2697, compared to $1700 in the US, so it's a bargain really. It also means that prices tend have more leeway to come down, once it's been out for a while. It doesn't make it any cheaper to import though, as the VAT and duty pushes the price up nearly as much, without a useful warranty.
Just noticed, that if you get the kit version with the 24-70 MkII, you save £1 on the price of a 1D X.
