    Just got back from checking out the MP4-12C

    Sorry, just cell phone photos.

    The point though is the car is beautiful and COMFORTABLE! A little tricky to get into due to the width of the carbon tub but once inside, no problem. The car was built around the driver.

    Did not get a test drive as the guy didn't think I was serious but that's what I get for showing up in shorts and flip flops I guess.

    Anyway, I'm open to offers on my M3 let's put it that way. They can be lowballs, I don't even care. I want an MP4-12C.

    Such an amazing car... An engineering masterpiece. When you finally give it a go, please write about it. I would love to own one. If it were between this and the F1, it would be a coin toss - solely because of age - and price no object (talking solely performance and drive-ability here). It's good that it's being talked about more than the F1 was back in the day, but I wish I could hear a more unbiased review.

    I intend to a do a full review. I just wish I could get it right now but while I have the M3 I can't.

    I want this more than any car on the market in all honesty. It's lightyears ahead of a Gallardo for example. Absolutely a technical marvel and it's built how I would build a car.

    Have not been in love with a car like this in a long time.

    Whether I pick it up this year or next year, I'm going to get one... and tune it... a little bit Click here to enlarge

    You don't want to compete against me. Plus, it's more work than any day job. It's a day, night, while you sleep, etc., job.

    Just kidding. I'm happy with what I do. Just want a MP4-12 like you. Just not a reality for me with kids and the house. One can dream for now. :-(

    Wife and kids are great man you have other more important priorities than toys. I'm just kind of realizing it's fun to be single and life is short. I'm in a fortunate position right now and really enjoying what I'm doing which gets better every day. I might as well pick one up before I have a wife and kids to worry about.

    Plus one of these at my age in OC? That sounds nice.

    I see more 458's than MP4-12C's and that's part of the appeal. So is that twin turbo V8 and carbon tub...

    I see them quite a bit in Boca Raton/Lauderdale/Miami area, although 458's and even Veyrons are more common here.

    Same. Naples has WAY too many Ferrari's. Tons of 458s, several MP4-12Cs, a few LFAs, way too many GTRs....

    Would love to see someone heavily mod one of these (mild turbo upgrade, quality tuning & some E85) just to see them cut down the heard of UGR Lambos/GTRs at TX2k

    From what I calculated the car will run mid 9's in the low 140's with bolt on's.

    I would love to see a turbo upgrade on it. This has a serious advantage on the GTR as it's much more slippery and much lighter. It also has a wider powerband.

    I wonder when we'll see modified turbos or who would do it? I don't mind being the first but someone buy my M3.
