One year after official dealer deposit and two years after registering interest. My car arrived today and I snapped some quick images to share. My first 10 miles have been ecstatic and I am over the moon. J

Spec:
McLaren Orange w/ stealth pack
Superlight wheels in stealth
Carbon Ceramic Brakes w/ MO calipers
Carbon Mirrors & Engine Covers
Interior in alcantara with MO stitching and MSO orange space fabric seat inserts (for driver cooling)















Speed Limit 5 hahahaa

Love the Spec. I think the CCM brakes look just fantastic especially with those wheels. Thanks for posting the picture, all these images are helping me form my own build,then i have to choose the dealer to order from, but hope i don't have to wait a year :( i will go nuts waiting once i finally decide. I don't know how you did it !
Well done on a great car and great specification.

^^ Glad to be of help. :) The guys at Beverly Hills are great. Ask for Joe or Mark.

As for the wait...it is painful but all about setting the right expectations and then adding a month or two. I had a car that was due to be ready in 3 months and it took 14. That was painful!!

I also opted for the sport exhaust. Love the inconel, hate the induction noise pipe- that thing is getting taken out for sure. Without the induction noise pipe the car sounds perfect inside and out. It would be good to figure out how to get the clear markers in the states. I guess I should start by asking Beverly Hills.

The radio is not too bad and I love the sound.

I am not sure how all this rear bias with boosted bass started but I like it perfectly flat and think it sounds fantastic. The staging is the best I think I have ever heard!

Your car looks awesome! I was torn between your exact choices on the exterior (all the way down to the calipers) and the ones I went with. I really like mine, but I have to say I would have been equally happy with those choices. Very well constructed!

I think you must have an Iris upgrade that I don't, however. :) The AM radio pops still make me jump in my seat thinking I just cracked my windshield! IPod sounds pretty good for me, though.
