    ISUK is definitely right, here it is (and more than one Alfa had it in the eighties).

     

    Smiley  I had three Alfa 75s in the late 80's/early 90's and it always amused me whenever I carried new passengers and they spent ages looking for the electric window switch but didn't seem to want to ask where it was. The roof centre console was the last place they thought of looking Smiley

    The only positive thing about this car: it makes a 720S look good. angry

    IMO the 720S did a good job at that on it's own. this does help though.

    I think I will wait for the McLaren The Alonso. 

    V6 turbo hybrid powered from Honda.

    Guaranteed to not work, so it will be a collector's piece as it won't and can't be driven.

    I guess the ceiling mounted switched are kinda cool.

    Alfa Romeo did that over 30 years ago with the 75 and got slated for it in terms of bad ergonomics. It is still a stupid place to put them.

    MSO would be best advised to quickly perfect a Klingon cloaking device as an option for this car Smiley

    Link? I didn't find anything on Google that looked like this. I think this looks fine. Doesn't seem to be an ergonomic issue for what this car is. They aren't really buttons you interact with often.

    ISUK is definitely right, here it is (and more than one Alfa had it in the eighties).

    That was my first thought as well on Saturday night. However , recall that it is in race mode which is a full 5cm lower than normal.

    What’s the purpose of the windows in the doors? Weight saving? Or just a design feature? I’m a bit surprised they get through a side protection crash test..

    According to McL it's to help the driver position the car closer to the apex while going through a corner. Although I don't see how that would work on the driver's side. 

    yes

    This is a good description. I was fortunate to spend quite a bit of time with the car today. It really is much better looking than the photos suggest though certainly no beauty, but neither is the GT2RS for that matter. The Geneva cars will look superb.
