    Most likely not. She asked me yesterday if we could go look at cars. I had to pick my jaw up off of the floor. You going to be at VIR for the Tudor races? We're planning to head up, not sure if we're doing both days or just Sunday.

    If it was a red one, it might have been the first LaFerrari delivered in America.

    Drove my GTC today. Rained heavy.
    The car drove perfectly and didn't dissolve.

    Saw the red 458 Italia from FCI heading north on Graham St while driving to C&C on Saturday.

    On Monday, saw a Bentley Continental GTC at the Epicenter at about 8:30.

    On Tuesday, saw a black 2014 Gallardo Spyder with black wheels at the Providence Plaza at about 11:15, then a white Ford GT with blue stripes on a flatbed truck heading north on Old Statesville Rd at aroud 3:00 that afternoon.

    On my way back to Raleigh on Wednesday, saw a red 1966 Jaguar E Type Roadster 4.2 at a small plaza in Asheboro. Pulled in and talked with the owners for a bit, turns out they were actually from Connecticut, but had driven down here to attend a few car shows.

    If you see this McLaren 650S Spider on the road around Raleigh, it's mine! Just got it this morning and I absolutely love it. Still have the red 458 Spider (just put my 5,000th mile on it this week!) and my silver FF (also just clicked over 8,000 miles). I love these cars!

    Beautiful car.

    I'm curious.

    There is quite a bit of controversy over the lack of a Limited Slip in these particular McLaren cars - aka Brake Steer. Some track drivers view this as nothing short of heresy.

    What's your take on it, from your driving experience.

    Thanks.

    Wow! That front end is something else! I'll definitely be keeping my eyes open for it, although I don't think I've ever managed to catch sight of any of your cars, except a brief glance of the 12C 50th Anniversary in Cary. One of these days I will....hopefully.

    It's never been an issue for me. I think whatever strangeness it caused in the early days of the 12C has been long since ironed out by McLaren. I have obviously not tracked this car yet but my 12C was amazing on the track. I can't wait to get it up to VIR next month!

    That's a beautiful car! It looks great in that color! I hope I see it driving around Raleigh. I've only seen one of your cars (the red 458 Spider) but I hope to see more of them soon.

    Anyone on here own or know anything about a black F430 Coupe? Saw one at about 3:00 heading east on Wade Ave in front of Whole Foods today....tried to chase it down and snap a picture, but I had to guess which direction he went in and apparently guessed wrong. Never seen this one before...

    Also saw a Bentley Continental GTC with a busted driver's side mirror at the Whole Foods Plaza, a GT-R Black Edition heading west on Wade Ave (right before I saw the F430), and a Lotus Elise in downtown near the new science museum.
