P14 Deposits Requested

The P14 inches forwards towards reveal and launch. UK Dealers are requesting £10k deposits, returnable until final spec when a further £20k will be requested.

When is launch, what will the spec be and at what price point?

'Dunno Sir, but in all cases better than the 650S'

Some lucky people have seen it, apparently by accident, and claim it has.........come on share the beans!

I am lead to believe that the car will be at Geneva with deliveries arriving in May 2017. Seems to me that the car will have a 7xx designation and a more radical in design than the 650S. We will have to wait and see if any of the aero specifics of the 675LT or the 688HS will be carried over, except the GT3 style rear wing. I am hoping for an IRIS replacement with Apple carplay and hud. And a year or so quiet period before they shoot the spiders, LTs and whatever into the market, he he he.

570 Spider will arrive later this year.

as a dealer I can tell you that I have not seen or heard anything specific about any data on the car and no data on release dates

just that...it will be a step forward.

I hope the seats will be more comfortable, they seem so in the 570. It needs some cabin bling in a McLaren way. Direct injection seems to be a distant addition .

I do understand the rear centre third wheel has been engineered for extra traction , utilising a trick electronic diff, but will be reserved for the 775LT Bruce Edition. The Elvis Edition will be restricted to California.

The styling will be Franktastic.......much more dramatic than the 570.

True. But it's a new vehicle have no doubt about that. A lot of rumours. Some of them one should take it with a pinch of salt.

that's a better question but not really where my head's at...I'm counting down the days until my striped 675LT spider arrives. well, it's shared with my wife but her and I are both excited.

I'm just trying to sell some cars right now and establish our business out in scottsdale.

I have heard that they will actually be keeping the P14 designation as the cars official name as it accurately reflects there current average qualifying position. Unveil on the coupe will be in Geneva with Spider following at the Winter Ball in 2017. Leaks scheduled to start in Q4.

Several dealers have been invited to a presentation in November. May the leaks begin.
