    Monterey 2019

    oh my gosh, did anyone else catch the royal screw up by RM with the first Porsche, the type 64?! I heard clear as day the auctioneer start off at 30MM and ramp it up to 70MM before correcting himself and saying something about "the energy" and dropping it back down to 17MM. Obviously took the wind out of the sails and momentum came to a screeching halt. Thing didn't sell and never reached it's expected price. Total shame, but man, did RM screw the pooch with the potentially biggest sale of the weekend. I'm sure someone is getting their ass chewed about it next week. Anyone in the room for this one?
  3. First time I went was 2008 I believe and then again in 2011/12, don't remember exactly. Good to hear it gets redone every few years and no serious accidents in the events. I always liked the Pocono area; beautiful area.

    SVJ63 roadster?

    These cars look like a mess. Is there any evidence even 25% of those vanes, inlets, and diffusers are functional? It has more "aero" attachments than a GTE Pro car yet is likely much lower performance than a Pista that doesn't even have a real spoiler... At probably $600,000+, I just see no value at all. I'd take a clean, original Aventador coupe over these any day, and twice on Sunday. 2012 Aventador is still one of the best exotic designs of the last few decades and it's about $400,000 less than this.
  6. No idea how you lost $70,000 in 18 months on a 12C or 650S unless you significantly overpaid. Poor residuals is not the reality anymore. That happened with the 12C and 650S, but nothing since. The 720S is 2 years old now in the US and they are still $260,000+ for most. I've been browsing for a while now and the prices have been consistently firm relative to the segment. You only lose excessive on a new McLaren nowadays if you go overboard on spec. There is no difference in residual between a $380,000 car and a $330,000 car, but there is also no real difference between the cars either. Comes down purely to personal taste. Launch car 570S are $80-100,000 under sticker 4 years later. Launch car 720S are $70-80,000 under sticker 2 years later. This is no different than any exotic in their respective price range. Performantes and Aventadors are not really any better. Barely used Performantes are $50,000-60,000 under MSRP. Aventadors can be $100,000 under MSRP for even the "limited" SV models.
  7. What a terrible deal... A 4 year lease with mileage restriction that locks you into a car for 4 years that offers no real savings over purchasing the car outright as far as I can tell. Leased exotics are for people with A) more money than sense, and B) idiots. I have never seen a lease deal on an exotic car that was better than just buying outright, especially if you're buying used (and you should buy used because you can't spec a leased car anyway). A used 600LT is $250,000 already. I assure you that car won't be $130,000 in 4 years given that 4 year old, much cheaper used 570S are still more than $130,000...
  8. Get a Carfax or run a free VIN check to background check a car before buying one. This can help you avoid bad cars that may cost you a lot of money in the long term.

    Monterey 2019

    19.8 including fees I believe. The Porsche is going to be the big one tonight at RM. I watched a lot of the RM last night, and noticed that things weren't selling near the estimated values. Some more, but most less. Market must have some spooked? The Islero sold at a decent price, $225K i think and the 25th Anniversary Countach wasn't super high. I'll do a write up of the Lambo's next week for the site.
  10. Yesterday
  11. Have an 86 Jalpa and the drivers headlight wont pop up. Is there a fuse or a fix that can happen? How do I remove the headlight motor?
  12. I'm ordering within the next couple weeks. Should be fun for some long range fun in the desert.

    I think the F1 goes for 25m plus. Maybe it already did.

    SVJ63 roadster?

    At least next month we get to see a car from Lamborghini that is actually new.
  16. The track is pretty solid, the main straight is re-done every few years. This event has never (knock on wood) had a serious crash during 5 years of multiple events per year at Pocono.

    SVJ63 roadster?

    Not exactly my definition of exciting but ok. But can’t they at least try a tiny bit to update the interior a bit?

    SVJ63 roadster?

    I think our forum has a slight problem: no one has posted this till now?...
  19. Some great stuff here! Thanks for sharing, looks like a lot of fun! Pocono was a dicey track is memory serves me correctly, but i think that straight by pit lane would work. Everyone come out safe and no accidents?
  20. And here I thought the Senna was one of the "hottest" cars McLaren makes....
  21. 600LT is one of the hottest looking cars in person.

    600LT Versus others....?

    Damn thanks for the insight and information. Crazy how they depreciate. I am seeing like ~$30k off new sticker. Was thinking of going used however new ones are looking more and more attractive.
  23. Aren't most SVJ Coupes built by now anyways since roadsters will start being built soon? If they don't make as many as planned the badging will be wrong like they were for the Murci SV.
  24. Full results in the SlipStream Racing Events app in your phones App Store. they just announced the next event for Sept 15...this one will be a full shootout with bracketed eliminations.
  25. I won’t name the dealership here in US but there is 3 SVJ’s in the floor and the salesperson didn’t took deposits when they specced out the cars and people bailed on these SVJ’s mind you there all coupes tho. My sales guy he told me about it and now they might ask me to place not only deposits (which I gave them 4-5 months ago already) but also potentially additional $50k during the securing the allocation and also another $50k during the build....they are contemplating doing this for repeated clients like me. However this is what they will do to a new fish walking in the door to order any Aventadors...again this is what I was told.
  26. Not a surprise really - UK economy is in big shit...end of flipping.
