    I just saw the video. I’m
    Not surprised that a British company picked Mclaren as the winner- I’m shocked at how my they hated the Pista! The comments were interesting. And this for a 600k+ car with the supposed mark up.

    Don't get the f car fanboys started on Evo review. Pista was 6th place LOL.

    600LT is a weapon and your other review of it is how I feel as well. Be car is blast to drive on track, not a DD and at price point with 570 family replacement coming soon, would be a hard pill for me to swallow. It's going to take something pretty damn special to replace the 720 for me...as in probably only another 720 or 7xxLT.

    I can get how it might not be picked 1st but listing at 6th is kind of funny. Makes you think they had an agenda or something. Most Brits seem to be critical of McLaren and bigger fans of Ferrari so this is an anomaly.

    The LT will be a beast.

    Something to consider about the 7xx lt- it’s not going to be as easy and comfortable to get in and out of like the 720- simply because it’s going to have to Senna seats.

    That was on big contrast between 720 and 600 that I noticed yesterday. The cutout in the roof for the 720 is a game changer in terms of ingress and egress. 600 with the solid roof and the bucket seats- it was a pain.

    Granted none of us care but one of the appeals of the 720 is its daily drivability. That will change with the LT. Just something to consider.


    Btw- IPO- on Fchat on the evo thread, you called out the obvious- people are leaving the Ferrari brand. Get ready for the lynch mob led Miley by none other than Schumacher himself. :)

    I bet the Senna seats will be an option - perhaps a must have option. Good point on the every day use, no point in having a car you aren't comfortable driving anytime you feel like it. I bet that it will usable the majority of the time but perhaps not as compliant, I will be willing to make that sacrifice. :)

    Both Lambo and Ferrari have been losing market share to Mclaren of late. I am becoming more interested in Lambo over Ferrari these days mostly because of the Ferrari is a Ferrari BS. They need to step up their game up and stop the silly buying tactics.

    Good thought on seats--I wonder if there will be options.

    As to EVO thread I look forward to the replies...truth hurts sometimes ;)

    But you wouldn’t want regular seats in the LT version. I have my name on the list but honestly - I don’t need more power so I’m gonna have to rethink this and decide if I do the LT or maybe the 720 replacement? Who knows, it’s fun to speculate.

    I too am more excited by Lambo offerings than Ferrari. My issue is with my 6’4” height, I have a tough time getting comfortable in a Lambo.

    Oh and there was a post on the pista thread where someone said that ferrairnis changing the rules- to get a pista or limited edition car, you need to buy all the regular production cars- Lusso, 812, 488. Then and only then do you have the privilege to be able to buy a Pista.

    I’m like- c ya! I’ll just buy something else. I’m sure other companies are happy to take a couple hundred grand from me!

    It'll be interesting to see what seats are standard and optional in the LT. I'm betting P1 style as standard, Senna optional.

    I agree. It won’t be the seats that are in current 720.
