Retrofitting upgrades to previously delivered cars I think is just unique and for me, is a huge huge validation of my decision to buy an early(ish) car.

O hell yeah!

Of course, this means we'll need a rematch between the 458 and the 12C once it's got the upgrade. Work, work...

Greg Levine has been quoted as saying he won't pit against them unless the magazine agrees to dyno and weigh the cars. Personally, I hope he sticks to that. Screw the press if they want to continue turning a blind eye. Customers already know the truth, even without the upgrade. It's nothing for Ferrari to squeeze another 25 PS out of their ringer cars, count on it.

I'm more excited to hear about the improved responsiveness (although the 25 extra Ps is very very excellent indeed!) Bravo McLaren

I wasn't talking about ringer cars, I was talking about me in my MP4 racing my wife in her 458. We're going to Sacramento Dragstrip in June; we'll have to go back in November :D

If they were like other car manufactures it would be released as a new model for 2013 and called it:
MP4 12c S

Do you know how to set up the launch control? If so, you should destroy the F458

That's what we aim to find out. We'll run both cars with launch control, run each in both lanes, both drivers in both cars. That should take a number of the variables out of the equation.

Can you imagine how may A-hole manufacturers in Germany and Italy are rubbing their foreheads right now? This is an amazing investment in Good Will. Hats off to Ron and the McLaren people. I can't wait for my car. For the rest of the "special car" world look in the mirror, here's what you will see:

Puts a big :D on current and potential customers alike.
I think all potential customers are due for another test-drive come October.
To examine the power boost, iris, programmable exhaust, and equalization options, of course. :p

Jokes aside, very encouraging.

Can only imagine the level of treatment future F1 (p12) customers will receive.

When I took in my car last week the head of sales confirmed this for me. This is great!
