    I wonder if the exhaust tip position is suppose to help with aero dynamics as it goes right into the wing elements.

    Nice video but pure marketing Bs.
    Theres nothing there about the actual ability of the cart, just dark smokey walter mitty stuff.
    I wonder if this is the real thing, like a Gt3 is or just a slightly repackaged 570 with some cool exhuasts and a wing..

    USA price list attached if anyone is interested in one of these. MSRP on well spec'd cars will overlap with the 720S, which to me offers more value for the money.

    It has the typical 'track day', hardcore solutions of more power and lighter weight. I'm not sure if that is really worth 2X my 570S, track pack car.

    I've been a racer and instructor for almost 30 years and it will take me quite a while to really be able to exploit what I have. Not to mention that unless the abilities of most of the supercar owners I've taught has somehow gone through the roof, anything more than an old Fiat X1/9 w/80hp, might cause a 'pucker factor'! :)

    From what we read, if youre not paying for the Cf roof/seats etc, probably the weight loss is not more than 100 lbs. It does seem there are different suspension pieces wishbones etc which may make a big difference.

    My experience is that when you take any street car to the track, its invariably soft. Add to that your point about lots and lots of Hp and Im not sure where were going here, beyond marketing. I would imagine a 570 with a proper track spring and shocks may be the ticket. I believe Mclaren make a 570 Gt4 of some sort I wonder what the difference in spring rates and shocks are to that car.

    Cool machine the 600lt is. It may like the 675 Lt be a more raw/entertaining street car. I wonder if you can really lean on any of these supercars on track.

    As to the comment about the x19, theres a reason why spec miata is so popular among racers, and its not just cost. There are very few who can follow a pro driven miata into a bend at the same pace in any of the supercars.

    then w ehave runnign costs which the mac page indicates are kinda out there.

    Still if they have cracked the 250swb and Gt3 code of a supreme road car that can really run on track out the box, thats something.

    Looking at the price list. 300k for a "trackable" 570. Straight out of ferrari's playbook. We can assume then the 570 is coming to the end of its cycle.
    The replacement if what we read is to be believed will be lighter.

    Really really cool road car, and if you like the 570 this one is probably better in the same way a 675 was better than a 650. The ultimate expression of the MP4 tub.

    I heard it yesterday and it sounds really good for a turbocharged car

    Agree, other alternative is to buy a 675LT for the same or less.
