Discussion in 'British' started by Superquant, Feb 22, 2011.
I asked for a December 11 or Jan 12 delivery in US.
To remove this ad click here.
Where is he?
I am trying to delay delivery until 2012.
I wonder how many they are building a Week? I'm told there are only 15 (London) VIP cars ahead of Customer cars
He is in the UK, ordered over 1 yr ago and is on VIP list i suspect.
the VIP list is for major shareholders and employees and possibly some F1 owners,but not all as i think Jay leno is getting his sometime in august
I am expecting mine in Nov. Just spec the car a couple of days ago. Looking forward to it.
It's awfully quiet on this thread. Anyone put in their final order and want to share?
Not sure if ive posted this before!
volcano (midlife crisis) orange
lightweight wheels in silver
carbon interior pack
carbon engine covers
black leather/ alcantara with orange stiching
chassis number 79
build date 20th june
sure ive missed somethings its been on order a long time!!!
Same color as mine, but I am surprised you are going with silver instead of shadow wheels.
Following are my specs:
CF turning vanes
CF engine bay panels
Alcantara/Black Leather interior
Contrast stitching in Orange
My delivery is around Nov/Dec and suppose to be the first shipment
Dealer just appointed, no price for car or options
my wife will be driving it as well,so i thought they would look better when she kerbs it!!!! plus the only time i have seen one like this was in the background of a vid by pistonheads
interviewing jenson button on youtube,with the silver it seemed to enhance the wider rear wheels making them look more dished inwards,wereas the colured ones hide this,i hope for my sake it isnt an optical illusion,if anyone has seen this ,your opinions please??
if they look crap i have a mate who can match spray them in the future,not ideal but wheels always seem to be the first things to go
My order: December 2011 or January 2012
super lightweight exhaust
ultra lightweight wheel in stealth finish
arabica brown leather dash with saddle contrast stitching
two tone leather seats, saddle outside and arabica brown inserts
two tone leather steering wheel saddle and arabica brown
Has anyone been given a definate date for the opening of the London showroom ?
June 21 grand opening.
Nice column by Jay Leno in the May issue of octane. I could not find it online but worth reading for the McLaren fans. The digs at Ferrari and their owners was a nice touch too.
Scan it and post
Yeah, Leno is all class
posted these questions also in Mclarenforum, but this one seems more active:
I checked the specs for the Belgium delivered cars and had some questions on options;
1. there are 3 standard colors(white, silver, blue): are these metallic colors or non-metallic (although can't imagine silver being non-metallic). I especially like the blue which looks a bit like Ferrari Blue Sera.
2. Has anybody seen any pictures of body colored front splitter. Seems like most pictures show the black or carbon version, but I think that body color would make a nice break in the full black front
3. In Belgium , floor mats are optional at 360 EUR... is this the same in other markets. Would imagine that these would come standard in this price category
4. TPMS seems to be mandatory for track tires and low weight wheels. Can you still add these wheels afterwards for track purposes if you didn't order TPMS?
5. One of the accessories listed is a 'fuel funnel adapter'. Anybody know what this is?
Sharing some feed-back after I drove the 12c a few days ago: great in every aspect. Balance very neutral, makes the car incredibly (too?) easy to control at the limit between over- and understeering. Engine pushing in a very linear manner, unlike many turbocharged supercars. Sound much better from inside than outside, but definitely a weak point if you like the very metalic sound of modern Ferraris. I am glad I ordered the inconell exhaust, although I never heard one. Most impressive is braking: typical CC for the feel, stopping distance and dependability after repeated braking, but the greatest point is the 12c's stability under heavy braking on a bumpy surface or in a curve. This should be a great advantage on the Nordschleife.
My dealer told me yesterday there is a delay in production and hence delivery time. Anyone else heard anything?
Perhaps one of my (many) fav's...
Anyone know from what event / release gala that's from?
Thanks for sharing your driving experience. Can't wait till I get to drive one.
Don't know about fuel funnel adapter. There are pictures on here of a fire black with painted splitter which I agree, breaks up the fish mouth view across the front.
not sure,it might be an event from new york last week?
