Does anybody know if the McLaren dealership on Wilshire is open? If so, do they have a 12C in the showroom that you can have a close look at? I'm in LA this weekend and I want to stop by if they have a car on the floor.
They must be pretty close if they have the F1 car on the floor.
I was told demo's at the end of November, but that was a while ago, not sure if thats still on schedule.
Joe Van DeVeer is the sales manager, and you cannot find a more infections and knowledgeable honest guy.
Actually the showroom is kind of open now. The sales manager said they are there everyday and should have their own demo cars soon to take the place of the prototype in the showroom. The Volcano Red 12C was also there yesterday. I forgot to ask him when they are leaving, but I suspect they might remain until his own cars arrive.
They already have their rolling chassis of the 12C as well. Looks great with the McLaren Orange brake calipers.
Here are the remainder of my photos from my stop at McLaren SF.
The goofy guy posing in some of my shots is my boss's son who came along with me on the trip. This was his very first time seeing a McLaren F1 in real life so he was quite enthused and I was thrilled that he got to see all the details after listening to me talk about them for so long.
