This letter is just BULLSHIT!

Ferrari skipped the V8 TT. They had the V8 TT in a 430 and a "new" V12 in a FXX. But the future owners decided that they wanted, another go with the V12 engine! Now with the direct injection system! The price could be right though. I doubt the F70 would VMaX at 390 Km/h. The new Ferrari will be shown in Geneve 2012 at earliest. The F70 will hardly be a 2200lb vehicle! 1250-1300 kg accordingly to a dealer in Milan. Someone mentioned that McLaren would have prototypes up and running at the end of september (P12)!? Rather closer to december month.. If so, maybe McLaren is putting some effort to perfect the 12C car first!? Sounds strange since it's several different development teams inside Paragon!

That memo just looks completely fake to me. It's not even addressed to anybody. And who actually writes "Top Secret" in their letter!

Seems to be a ruse to generate some publicity or rumors...seriously, who writes out specs for a car like that willy nilly? Not to mention a twin turbo V8 at ~800hp will easily kick out more than 1000Nm of torque rather than 772Nm...

They could have at least been a bit more creative. Included KERS, quad turbos, a nano/buckyball based cf tub etc....
