Most reviewers being YouTubers? All the press so far is massively positive. This car is meant to be an all rounder (drive all the way across Europe and them drive at Spa). Any of these cars you can't really bring them to full potential outside of a track.

Amazing how dated the 12c looks. Could have been released 16 years ago.


No worse than an early Gallardo, IMHO. I kinda like the 12C for being a bit understated and not cartoonish looking.

I can't get behind most of the McLaren design language.

I bet the following year they will change the front end like they did with 12c to 650s to try and spike sales. we will see

This.

Also, issues with doors closing (soft closing not working right) and the infotainment crashing on the review launch cars. Oh Mclaren don't you change...

I hope they do. Saw it last weekend at a launch event and the front end is FUGLY puke.gif puke.gif puke.gif puke.gif

The rear is really cool, the interior is a hue improvement, but in McLaren fashion the front is just plain hideous puke.gif

Top Gear: In eleven years at the company you’ve met a huge number of your customers, can you tell us what a typical Lamborghini owner is like?

Stephan Winkleman: It seems very superficial, but it’s really male. Usually, they’re all self-made men – ranging from those in the 20s right up to men in their 70s. They’re very proud of their product, and they have no fear to be seen in a car like this.

And when I speak to them, I feel that they buy into a world, not only into a product. So it’s also a lifestyle, an idea they see behind that. And they enjoy the car as something that is rewarding them for the hard work they’re doing, or a dream that came true after, say, saving for 20 years.

First track test by Autocar, 0.7 seconds faster than the P1 while only on pirelli Corsa tires on a 1 minute 6 second course. Shorter braking distance than the P1 and only a second slower to 190 mph than the P1. This car is ridiculous. On trofeo R, I can't imagine anything in this segment being close. That's two seconds a lap faster than a 488GTB on a 1 minute course...

This explains why McLaren never released P1's Nurburgring time.

Car has to be fast so we can't see the front clearly!
