Hi Guys
I'm new to the forum and just wanted to say hello to you all.
I just put together an order for a 2014 Spyder with an Elite Paint Job.
The special color will be Mclarens Rocket Red; everything else will be mostly Black.
Th:)e dealer said there is no other Mclaren car totally painted in this Fun color.
It should be delivered to our CT. dealer by end of August.
I'll try to post pics when we get it.
I'm having a Escort 9500ci installed and the new Nano self healing film put on.
:)
Looking forward to being part of this wonderful group

Didn't even know they'd consider that colour. Isn't the silver that they use on the F1 racecars off limits? Thought Rocket Red would be the same. Looking fwd to seeing it. Welcome!

Welcome to Mclaren Life Zorro

End of August isn't too long :rolleyes: sounds like a very nice spec.

Great stable - curious about the H1 thinking of ordering a new one vs used. Always wanted one and now that they can be built again curious to hear your thoughts.

H1

I’m not aware that the H1 will be built again.
If you get a used one ; only go for the 2006 Alpha
They all require constant maintenance.
Fantastic fun if you go off roading

Click on AMG Humvee kits.

They are a tenant - agree Alpha is the only way to go.

It's just something every car nut should own :)
I'm a car nut, let me repeat that car nut heavy emphasis on the car. My impression of a Humvee is a total waste of money unless I was fighting a war or maybe hunting for wild boar with Ted Nugent. I see no use for such a huge monstrosity of a vehicle in my stable, it is truly hideous. Don't mean to offend anyone, but thems my feeling about that there thingamabob. Well you know, now that I think about it would prove handy for harvesting my crop of Mary Jane plants hidden out there in the vast outdoors. Okay I've changed my mind, its still extremely hideous but it may prove useful after all. LMFAO??. Cheers....??

There isn't a car out there I don't like or would mind driving / owning - H1 alpha is a beast gotta love em!

So what color are you ordering?

I also can justify almost anything - even using it for a snow plow / maintenance crew placing the company name on it would be cool - simply knowing it's available to take over the world (stealing your crops) would be nice too :)

If I was to order one 612 it would have to be in a forest green camouflage pattern, so I could go about doing things incognito. As for the crop you'll have a hard to finding me and it as I drive my around terrorizing the woods in that beast of a truck. Now I'm going to smoke a doobie and listen to the Doobie Bros on my couch. LOL??. Cheers.....??

Mclarens Rocket Red

Sorry to report that my dealer just informed me the color we were going to paint the car
Rocket Red will not be available due to the fact that it has no UV protection.
They only use it on small parts of there Race Cars and Helmets.
We changed over to Volcano Yellow.
I haven't seen a Mclaren in this color yet; but it also looked awesome in the pictures.
If anyone has seen the car in this color, please let us know your thoughts.
Thanks
Steve:)

I saw one at the MPC and it looked like a lemon yellow as opposed to a buttery yellow.

I think it is a Volcano colour so has that underlying sparkle to it but check that with the dealer as I could be wrong.

There is a VY currently in the showroom at Pfaff here in Toronto, it's one extremely bright colour and you will be seen from miles away. So if your the type who loves to be noticed or recognized when driving around town this is the car for you. I will be there again today I you would like I can take some pictures and post them for you zorro212. Cheers.....??

Oh, I was told when there, that the VY spider is Pfaff's new demo car, which is replacing the old MO coupe. Beautiful cars indeed and an extremely loud colour indeed. If you want to get noticed this is truly the car for you, Jason at Pfaff mentioned when driving the VY car he was getting a lot of attention, I mean a lot. Cheers....??

VY

Thanks for those GREAT PICS.
The one outside looks the same as the one I ordered.
Were all going to get a lot of attention in this super car regardless of color.
I was thinking of having the Escort 9500ci laser and radar built in rather than a window mount;Any thoughts on this.
