How did you get into McLaren's? What attracted you to the brand and the cars?
I thought the F1 was CHDI have over the years been invited to McLaren's Paddock Club. During these visits, i can see their dedication to being the best and winning. No other team in F1 has competed so consistently with Ferrari. Cannot afford the buy the F1 and it's also LHD. When i heard about the 12C, i had to have one.
That obsession with perfection - that's another reason I'm here too. And the hexagonal wiring is one of the better examples.Hexagonal profile wiring.
It ain't the devil that's in the details..it's Ron Dennis
+1,very well put August couldnt agree moreThat obsession with perfection - that's another reason I'm here too. And the hexagonal wiring is one of the better examples.
But when I'm driving the car - regardless if I'm flying down a canyon or just tootling along with traffic - it's just the best car ever. When I get back into anything else now it feels old, like I went back to cassette from a CD. The 12C is the Car of Tomorrow. And I mean compared to pretty much anything.
The only car with a more comfortable ride is a Phantom. The only car that's faster hasn't been built yet (and it'll be a McLaren, too).
I love that as I'm just cruising along in this very comfy, quiet car that's getting 25mpg and rocking the tunes on cruise control ("Dr. Jekyl" mode) - I could pretty much kill anything that's stock (and most of what isn't) - as long as it cost less than $1M (and/or the race is below 175mph) ("Mr. Hyde" mode).
And if the road is twisty I don't care what you're driving.
I got into them because my ( very bad ) " mate " (quoted above ), bought one and drove it to spa , took me out for a few laps and I fell in love .Walked pass the Knightbridge showroom on the way to the Chicago Ribsack.
