    a derivative of the 3.8 twin turbo thats in the MP4-12C. Apparently modeled on the same engine but no components are the same

    Ha ha for sure , looked like tagging so be shit paint id guess.
    I went backwards through a bp once, came a wee bit sideways out of a roundabout and the paint got me

    Not as bad as my mate in vegas, hired a 03 vette in 03 and got sideways down a concrete road, there was a bit of moisture on the road and there was a steel drain grate across it at the bottom of a slight decline. Worse than paint and 7k us in small print silly fool ha ha

    The vettes have a nasty nasty habit of spinning and changing direction violently in 2nd or 3rd

    Apparently the Porsche 918 is even quicker and less of a handfull, will have a similar pricetag though

    There was a yellow McLaren at Hampton Downs today, nice looking set of wheels, had dealer plates on it so guess the buyer wanted to see what she went like.

    About four weeks ago I was coming over the harbour bridge and was passed by a black McLaren MP4 - I nearly collided with another car I was so surprised. It was black and had a McLaren type personalised registration - can't remember what it was!
