the 3 modes for power

hello everyone,

i have a doubt which has been bothering me for some time now. When Chriss Harris , a well known automotive journalist, tested the MP4-12C he gave a certain explanation about the three moders which alter the power-train. My doubt is this, he said the car felt like a "normal" ferrari F430 in sport and like a 458 italia in track mode. Is there an actual difference in the power output between the three modes..? Like in the Noble M600 ? Or does the MP4-12C always produce the now claimed 600 plus horse power..??

Thank you,

Power output remains the same but throttle/gear shift response and level of noise transmitted into the cabin change depending on setting
I understand you guys want everything promised to be working, but seriously, only car I use Nav on is my daily driver. Iphone and free mapquest app. works great on my cars with crappy or no Nav at all. For now, enjoy what the car was designed for, performance driving.
My 12C is my daily driver and that is what it was designed for (allegedly), remember all of those AND car discussions in other threads? I actually paid for IRIS over 9 months ago (am I the only one dumb enough to have done so?) so expecting it to work is not unreasonable.

As an aside, how on earth did a thread about the 3 powertrain settings become a full blown IRIS debate? Maybe we need to rename this thread.
