UK 720 Preview today.

Ok. So I'm being a bit impatient. Does anyone have an idea as to the format today?

Is it an evening event or a daytime, time slot/group event?

I'm certain someone will post a detailed review in the very near future. but I can't wait. As I wish I was there at this point in time.

Gather at TLC, unveiling with approx. one hour presentation by several McLaren managers, walk close up, sit in car, mingle and network while trying to access the limited configurator.

It was great! Suprised how many improvements there are on all levels. So 400 cars are being launched with 3 different editions consisting of 9 colours each.

Not really. As he wrote, there are three editions and several color/interior factory configured versions for each. They said 27, but no one was really sure about that.

Sounds like the "Hero" colours and pre-defined configurations that you will be able to "select" and further tweak using the configurator. Just like the 570S and the predefined designs.

Thank you Samc

Was it as we have already seen / or close? Would you / will you buy one? If you are sworn to secrecy we will understand.

Hope to be one of the early 400.s

Edition 1, 2, and 3. Really. 1 is the cheap, 2 the luxury, and 3 the track oriented.

The colours available will all be available after. Not sure how many different colours actually. The first edition was the so called launch edition, the second was launch 2, not sure about the difference. I believe both were normal or comfort, so leather inside and not too much carbon outside. The third edition was called performance. Not all colours are available for all editions but most are. All colours are new. There were no bucket seats available i believe but not sure, not for the first 400 i mean. Mso options not available for this launch. Probably ends autumn/winter regarding delivery before 401 is delivered. Please note most of this information is from mclaren personel trying to answer all the storm of questions. They had great 3d screens and even vr for illustration.

I ordered it yes like all i think, and the most i liked was the overall improvement on all levels, and in regard to the looks it is overwhelming so i think i am going with a dark colour.
