Get ready lads.

106 to be made apparently, seen everday usability mentioned in relation to this so where's it going to be road legal? Have they found a way around crash regs?

Very excited to see how this car turns out. All 106 are spoken for and MSO will work with each customer to ensure that every car has an individual touch. The values of these things will go through the roof.

So we know it's going to be a 'Hyper GT', so we can expect the interior to be very luxury. It's going to be a hybrid. Any word on the engine yet? I do hope they use something bespoke for and special for this model.

Anyone placed an order on here?

We knew it was coming but it's always fantastic to get official confirmation! Looking forward to it.

Next question: will it be named the F1???

Sounds like an exciting car. I like the idea of a hyper car that is aimed at the road. Should have exquisite detailing for that kind of money and if it really can recreate the F1 then that will really be something. I think the only way to buy one of these (not that I would be able to anyway) is to buy it to use it. Because at that money, in two or three years time, it might not be an automatic appreciater.

Past - M Roadster, XKR, E46 M3, 996 C4S, 997 C2, DB9, 360 Spider, DBS, 430 Spider, California, Challenge Stradale, 12C Spider
Current - Cosworth Impreza CS400, 997 GTS Cab, Range Rover Sport, Speciale, FF

It will be road legal everywhere. The only place crash regs should pose an issue will be in the USA where our ridiculously outdated, unbelted occupant crash test poses the biggest challenge. Instead of trying to modify the design to conform to that specific requirement, my understanding is that these cars will instead be entered into the USA under 'Show or Display', thus eliminating the need to comply. This will limit the car's use to 2,500 miles per year here, but I think that would hardly be a concern for most customers.

Congrats to all the lucky 106 souls who made the cut. Did ownership of a F1 and a P1 give the owner an automatic build slot with the rest going to select P1 owners? I'm guessing anyone who got a build slot had to sign a NDA?

Show or Display would only be granted after the entire production run of cars has completed though...US customers would therefore need to buy an EU spec car and privately import them I suppose.
