Bucket list item!

Growing up, I was the last on the block to get a Ferrari (all my friends were rich and famous, we lived there to put me through the school system).
I actually never got the Ferrari as I went to college, was partners in some vintage race cars, and then got married and into a life of family-raising debt!
Now I have 3 grown children, a finally-over nasty divorce, and 2 recent brain surgeries.
I decided to spend some of my children's inheritance on myself, but was so disappointed after driving modern Ferraris (vs. Dino, Daytona, 330 GTC, etc.).
And then I found the 570 GT McLaren, and the clouds parted and the sun shined bright. What a car!

What a great story! absolutely 570GT such a great car. I've had many of the same cars and agree 100%. Actually miss the some of the older ones but compared to modern cars there is no comparison IMO. Glad you found it
