Really want to throw some thoughts down that I've had about the car without actually getting into nitty gritty details (I'd like to invited back in the future). I apologize in advance for being vague.
First, it was great meeting a bunch of you guys beforehand. I don't think I've ever been in a better informed group of people when it comes to cars. Incredibly refreshing talking to people about nitty gritty details rather than simply "what are you buying next" or "Why'd you buy this when you can get a corvette for 1/5 of the price." Thanks NH4 for setting up that get together.
Around the time the P1 was introduced, I remember reading a quote from Frank that went something like this, "If you think the design of the P1 is wild, wait for the replacement for the 12C." I may have just imagined the quote because I can't seem to find the article where he first said it, but either way that is the image I always had for the P14. High expectations, given that I think the extremeness is a big part of what makes it beautiful.
This thing lives up to the extremeness of the P1, particularly in the nerdy details and I believe does so in a more elegant shape than the P1. From every angle the car is beautiful at worst and mouth watering at best.
The interior is fantastic! I spent a lot of time in it given that the local dealer, who was in the passenger seat, held me captive and wouldn't let me leave! A traumatic experience of course, but in my captivity it was impossible not to notice how beautiful all of the materials are and how much care they put into the interior. It fixes a lot of the complaints and problems of the P11 platform it seems.
On the exterior, again staying vague here, it was obvious that while the demo car has all of the carbon available, the car would look equally fantastic in the standard dark palladium. I love that it makes carbon a matter of taste rather than a near necessity if you want a some contrast (I'm looking at you body color side intakes!).
Overall it was a fantastic experience, again it was great meeting a bunch of you and even though I'm still an aspiring owner (and young) I was treated as a friend.
