Hello everyone!
I've been surfing the forum and finally decided to join.
I currently drive a wonderful Audi R8 and, like most everybody else (with few exceptions), am waiting for my turn at a 12c.
I find it interesting that the same descriptions of my R8 as a "daily sports-car", "practical", "comfortable on the road and on the track", "unemotional", "sterile", "clinical" are often used to describe the 12c as well (and my old NSX, for that matter). I guess that tells you what kind of person I am. I seem to be drawn to the same "type" of cars. The 12c seems to be the perfect next step from my R8.
I am a little torn on the color. I love my R8's grey/CF/Titanium wheel look (see below) and believe the 12c in this combo would be stunning... but that volcano red seems to be calling my name.....
We'll see I still have a while to figure it out.:(

Anybody have inside info as to when we can expect some cars in Texas?? The wait is going to kill me.

Moncho. They were building cars for the USA dealers last week so I would guess customer cars will arrive in 2012. This is a safe prediction:)

The build quality has improved measurably in the last month and will continue to get better so the wait has some benefit.

By the way the dark silver, seal grey to me, looks very good on the MP12. It is classy and somehow shrinks the car to my eyes plus shows the curves/line as well.

Thanks.
I realize that more time will give them opportunity to work out the kinks. I'm 300 miles from the nearest dealer... frequent visits would be very annoying!
