    I’m hearing amazing things about the 600lt. :)

    I hear you...it's not LE but only limited production. For me, it's not a $280 car (I was offered one incoming this year) in my rotation. Not saying it's not worth $280 to someone, just for me I'd take a RS with 720 and have best of all worlds. When 750LT shows--that all changes.

    I don’t disagree with you. 280k a 600, a bit more a 720.

    As far as the 750- don’t hold your breath. We are 2 years away at a minimum. The 720 is a 2018 model. They will milk this platform for 5 years. I think the 720 comes out in 2021 at the earliest- 2022, more likely.

    Go buy a 720 and enjoy the hell out of it.

    720 all day. 600LT is a great car but you can get a barely used 720S for high 200’s and it’s a legit hypercar. SoCal what’d you pay if you don’t mind me asking?

    Mine was a 2018 with a 350k MSRP (if I recall). A 2019 would be 360k cause of the price increase but basically the same car. I paid 327k. It has 130 miles

    that's about right, the ones selling for less tend to be earlier models with low msrp

    I found nothing cheaper with as good of a spec- although Park place has one - similar miles and similar MSRP and they are asking 315k- but mine has a few other features and better wheels. So likely I could have save a few more bucks but I bought from a local dealer which I wanted.

    I think park place still has the car- papaya spark- pick that one up Ipo!!

    There are definitely cheaper ones but they are basic strippers and/or higher miles. I wanted the perfownlce package, I wanted upgraded rims, I wanted papaya spark.

    And so you see what I've been saying all along -- the 720S isn't depreciating like everyone said it would. The only ones suffering large depreciation are overspec'd with CF.

    There also aren't really any barebones specs that actually look low-spec. They all look like a normal spec car with the typical options.

    the market dipped recently on all cars but there isn't much direct competition to the 720.

    And why does that matter to you and why should we care?

    There's no competition really. It's exotic, the performance is more or less above all, it's usable daily, and the price for a nice one is low 300s.

    There's nothing close to it IMO.

    I've seen that one but it's got like a 120 VIN--one of the first builds. I don't care for PP--and they are terrible on pricing, so better units I'm looking at, but love the Papaya.

    There’s one similar to yours available right now for $297k I think MSRP of $350k ish. From the Toy Barn. I know nothing about the Toy Barn but saw it in auto-trader.

    Slightly higher miles on that one. And it’s regular orange but yeah- 297 is a good deal

    Yup. Vanity plates for actual car owners. What do they call plates for people who just hang out on forums without actually owning anything but giving their very passionate opinion? Non owner plates?
