Out of the two, I'd definitely go for the HS.
It would be a very interesting test to see the HS v a standard LT v the 'Full Fat' LTs (roof scoop and louvres etc).
Does anyone know if the full Carbon cars save any weight at all over a standard LT Spider?
On the LTS Carbon Series I just don't find myself loving a fully bare black carbon car. They do look impressive given the efforts involved, but I just don't yearn for the look of carbon fiber quite that much to drape an entire car in it.
I think it could have been interesting to do one where the painted areas were all gloss carbon, and the areas traditionally left in carbon were instead done in satin. I'm sure there are others who would shudder at that idea, but I think the contrast would have been cool. It appears that two LTS CS owners were able to get portions of their cars tinted and they look great, but the majority look to be gloss black and that's not my thing.
All that said, joining the MSO HS club would have been it for me, without a doubt. Even better is the fact that no one else chose my preferred spec so I would have fit right in.
Three coloured Carbon Series cars have been delivered so far, with a fourth rumoured: they are full blue, blue with red stripes, and blue with CF stripe with gold pinstripes.
The is also one Carbon Series LT Spider with gloss where the paint 'should' be, and matte CF on the normal panels. It looks very good!
My favourite non-coloured Carbon Series LT Spider has to be the first one from McLaren Glasgow which has the P1 Carbon Series look: red contrast and pinstriping.
I will have to check once home, but I am relatively sure that the pictures other blue cars cannot be posted yet.
