It's a special offering. It's inevitable that it'll eventually get recognized as such. Though, us keen enthusiasts were ahead of the curve! ;)

also, I just read the latest Top Gear that has a 12-car "Super Test" - a lot more positive reaction to the MP-4 and lots of good pix

Well, if you are still a detractor of McLaren, what else is there to say?

They said Ron was an idiot for trying to penetrate the U.S. market so soon. The car is sold out. They said the McLaren name has no heritage or brand equity. Apparently wrong, as well. They said it wasn't emotional enough. Even that was solved with a few keystrokes.

The best way to silence your detractors is to excel. And Ron knows a thing or two about that. ;)

Excellent review.

Love the line, "...less raw than the Ferrari V8, but also less tacky."

And he doesn't use McLaren's own language, but pretty much sums up that it's the "AND" car. Can't wait to see them on U.S. roads!

I like that post, i hadnt seen it.
He is right about the ferrari and lambo, they do make you "feel" fast, IMHO the 12C makes you fast.
