Is the U.K. the biggest market for MP4-12C's after the U.S. (in terms of actual #'s), or they're even larger than America?

US for sure will be the biggest market by far, with California and Florida taking the lion share.. LA alone has two dealers within 25 miles of each other !!!

Car appears to be LHD, so not a UK car. Hope the driver is okay and doesn't find himself needing new employment.

Good eyes. I hadn't spotted that.. Might have contributed to any "collision" driving on UK roads and round abouts on the wrong side of the car is a total pain. Like you i hope anyone involved is OK

No, I think it will be spring next year. I'm now negotiating with them
Sorry to hear about this,maybe they can slot you in like ferrari did with the burnt out cars,its not your fault and when everything is going right they say a car takes 21 days to go through production,but maybe if you have bad winters there then you can delay to suit!!

I would push them hard for a car ASAP. I know they have slots in the production that are "open cars", ie units that don't have deposits on them so they will be available at "market" price for the dealers. You should push for one of those slots.
Having said that i have every confidence that McLaren will do the right thing..

McLaren needs to build a track/road course on site in Woking (or buy Longcross) so they can avoid these situations.
I agree. I know they test a lot over at Longcross, maybe the drive from MPC to Longcross is where the problem occurred. Its not exactly a straight drive:eek:.
I move for Uncle Ron to build a track right around the factory, aka Fiorano..

They used to take the MercMac to Chobham track to bed the brakes in.
