Welcome to the year 2015. Every car will sound like this going forward. NA is dying. I'm sure it will sound no worse than any other turbo cars going forward.

Are you guys passing judgement on the sound from the 10 sec idle video posted above!?? Or did I miss something where the car is actually driving and revving.

I was watching a youtube video the other day of a montage of exotic car exhaust notes from various car rallies.

Everything was represented including f12 and 458 which I expected to be best.

suprisingly the best sound IMO was the nissan gtr. A turbo 6.

It looks crazy. I like it. The dealers are going to be charging crazy premiums for a while.

I'm gonna call around tomorrow and see if any local dealers will take a deposit. I thought I read they will be made to order though, so maybe no dealer premiums? Will find out eventually.

I don't pay premiums though. No ifs and or buts about it.

You think it will actually be 3000lbs? I suspect 3200+

I love the look of the new LaFordari MP40. My gripe is (like everyone else) the V6. I was expecting at least the flat plane crank V8, not this ecoboost. If this will be more than $250k, I don't think it will do as well as the last one.
I put my name on the list at a local dealer, but will back out if it's more than $260k

Dealers around here get excited over a new shade of tan. So yes

Apparently I'm alone in this thought but this thing looks like an absolute mess. And a V6? I'd rather drive a Mustang. Whoever is comparing this to the P15 must be on a steady diet of crazy pills.

Nope. It has some nice aero work here and there, but the overall design is catastrophic.

And I see a few places that it's going to be called the Phoenix? I really hope that's not true but I suppose an awful design needs an awful name.

Would be better off with a different name. Ford GTs of past looked simple, elegant and timeless. This on the other hand is trying too hard to look futuristic.

P14 could be unveiled in late 2016/early 2017. Loving how all these manufacturers are releasing their new supercars. It's never a bad thing!
