    Sorry folks, no pics, no cameras allowed & we had to surrender our cam-phones as usual. Singapore is the first country to view this working prototype. Stephen was here for presentation.

    One word = impressive!

    6.5L, 700Bhp, 680Nm @ 5500rpm & redlines @ 8250.

    New 7 speed single clutch gearbox with two automode & 50 ms shifts!

    But get this, Carbon monoque chassis & F1 style suspension on the rear ;)
    Car is 229kg lighter & 70% more rigid! 4WD.

    Many new gadgets too for the cabin.

    Car will be shown in Geneva Auto next spring. Get ready your cheque book!

    Oh, forgot to mention this. 0-100 in 2.9 secs & 350Km/h top speed.

    Well OK, but as always, the most important question is:

    Do the doors go up?

    Yes, but slightly different to other cars (seen on spy shots and from someone at the viewing).

    Love the stats , top end faster than an enzo now rt ? 0-60 blows it away too ... Cant wait for pix . Funny thing is this car will be 1/2 the price of the Reventon lol ... Never understood the idea for producing that car . The looks are cool but the performance is that of an LP 640 . What a waste of $ imo ........

    It's so you could buy a regular Murci with the money you saved by not buying a Reventon.

    It looks very good. Modern and not so slab sided as the 640. A bit more rounded all around
    but just a bit. Doors still swing up but now also opens sideways at a small angle too. Meaning it doesnt go up completely vertical like today's car. Much easier to get in and out. TFT display for speedometer, and other screens. Very clear and legible and a gorgeous center console much like a fighter jet IMO. Start button has red cover that you must flip up first. The engine note is great, even at idle. The frontal view has prominent Y shaped LED lighting...sexy!
    Apologies,,,dont mean to hijack Jon's thread. Just sharing my impressions of the car.

    Bro, please share whatever you know & feel!

    We're being quoted S$1.45million which is USD1.12million @ current exchange rate & about 50 cars sold! Don't freak out, it's the norm down here. The regular Lp640 costed us S$1.3m so it's about 10% higher than last which means it should be about US$300K.

    It has some DNA from Estoque & Reventon. I would say it's more angular with a Zagato styled "bubble" roof & a lot of hexagonal forms all over but I find that there's too many breaklines & looks a little busy. 19" front & 20" rears.

    DCT is too heavy, will have 20-30Kg penalty & too smooth according to them. They like to keep the "thump" feel.

    I don't suppose there'll be a RWD version. 700Bhp NA & 1.4ton is quite a handful. To be honest, I think it's a "steal" for the technologies for us here. An Enzo would have costed us about US$3mill to register back then!

    Btw, car is presented in a pearl dark orange & chassis #0029 ;) the production car will have some details finalised.

    Nose looks like it. Longer, wider but no wing. The wing should be a big piece that's integrated to the body unlike before while the upper side ducts raises the opposite way.

    Has a pair of Y shaped LED daytime running lights & interesting indicators like the UK pavillion in Shanghai world expo.

    They claimed it's a new engine. Shorter stroke etc but nothing on the block as most buyers are more concerned with the looks & specs than technical. Looks pretty much the same when you pop the lid.

    I'm more concerned with cooling as my Murcie can't take more than 3 hot laps in Sepang & even the SV needs to retire after 5-6 rounds to cool off.

    Phones were surrendered & even dealer have no prior news of this but I'm sure it'll be out in no time.

    Thought I saw Kg but now that you asked, it could be Lbs. Can't recall if he said 10 or 20% reduction in weight but chassis stiffness increased by 70% because of the carbon fibre chassis. I did see a higher than usual side sill frame.

    50%, it does have the same tail lamps but the butt is a lot lower & wider with more cooling ducts like the SV. The car looks good, everybody who saw it got wowed including a 50+ woman :D

    I'll try to pen a drawing when I'm free.

    Of course the doors go up & also angled out a little. How can it not?!

    It opens with a feather touch button from outside, no more mechanical lever to pull like before.

    Those wheels look like a Ferrari design, the rest looks interesting.
    From this angle the tail looks awkward, but anything that low will have serious presence.

    Whatever that is, I need to see more!
