Okay - this seals it for me. I'm making the 350 mile drive to McLaren San Francisco tomorrow. I haven't seen a 12C in Azure Blue yet and I'm kind of dying to see the GTR on the showroom floor. Win - Win!

Please don't pick your car up until I get there. :D

The GTR is pretty cool.

I don't pick it up until Monday so have at it!

I am pretty happy overall how it turned out. Lots of carbon parts including mirror stalks give it a finished look (not a fan of the dull grey-black plastic McLaren uses). Chocolate brown dash with contrasting stitching to match the saddle tan visually creates a warmer interior. Saddle tan does come out a little more orangey in color than I expected... My butt covers it so all good!

Well, turns out I can't make it up there today afterall. :(

Enjoy the car though - definitely a beauty and it sounds like you made some great choices on the spec sheet. I look forward to more pics after you get it in your hands on Monday.

I'll be visiting McLaren SF later today. I'll try to take as many pics of the GTR. If I see your Azure car, mind if I take a few shots to share with the rest of the forum?

I went over today to see the '97 F1 GTR Longtail and the Azure blue MP4-12C. Sensational cars. I took a ton of pics of the GTR, I'll upload a few later on. Didn't take any of the blue car out of respect for the owner, I'll let him show it off to the world! The interior is perfect, an excellent match for the blue exterior. The car was parked next to a Volcano Red car with similar spec. They were a perfect contrast to each other. You may have to buy them both as a pair :) Also, Alan is a true gentleman. Unbelievably nice guy, and he knows his stuff. Had wonderful conversations with him.

Get James to insure you with Chubb and I'll drive the macca over for you ;)
George,thats not a problem!! Dont let him fob you off,when your with Chubb you are insured for any driver to use your car at any age,provided you are agreeable:D

I did think this was not applicable to me and wanted it removed for a cheaper policy,but no go its just part of the service!!
