The fact that there are at least 78 more of these blows my mind. The amount of resources that goes into just one of them might just be more than I will amass in my entire lifetime.

That said, supercars just don't do it for me anymore. I guess because I know that I will never have one, and focus my lust towards more realistic goals. Weird.

Two of them?!?!!

The owner of my company just picked up a used 12C last week. The exhaust has no smell. It's the craziest thing. I can be idling there for 30 min and you wouldn't know it.

These things are very pretty cars.

Serious question: Did your sales manager have to change his pants after that pic?

Center console looks like a Nokia 2005-era phone. Herp.

Loving the looks of the car though.

Ive been in the 12C, the grip level in the corners was awesome for a stock car. More than my car with Nitto NT01's

He's driven them before at the McLaren Plant

Pretty normal actually. You see the same basic adaptation at a bar circa 12:45 or so.

Re the topic. I love that modern fighter aircraft basically look ungainly and awkward relative to modern supercars. As do most women. Just funny.

I saw one at a stop light the other day. It kind of struck me that this is a car that needs to be seen up close. It doesn't have the best lines but the detail is what makes it great. It's also really small, at least smaller than I expected.

I think it is a car that will take a few years for it to be a classic design. It bothers me when people say it is ugly and then say the F1 is the best looking car, ever. I've seen one in person and they look very plain.

I almost think the 12c has a better overall look (if a bit plain), see them all over the place.

I hate fake aero, that's where the P1 shines since it was designed by air
