    Whoopsy:

    This one has black interior with yellow stitching and yellow seat belts and FULL yellow gauges.

    But no black painted rims? Smiley Smiley

    Walter Röhrl crashed a 918

    http://www.worldcarfans.com/115062395665/walter-rohrl-crashes-porsche-918-spyder-weissach-video

    Amazing how calm he is. In the end, the car slipped over all four tires, it is actually quite astonishing that he was able to "control" the slide that long. I understand what he tried to do (he wanted to slide along the track until the car looses momentum/speed, so he can "catch" it) but in the end, the slide went out of control, maybe because one of the tires entered the grass. Of course this is all speculation but he did pretty well considering the speed. I just hope this was a factory car.

    It was a press car and also had some issues from the previous magazine test (think it was Auto.it)... :)

    I'll throw in my vote for this, IMO it will give it a bit of contrast.

    I had actually asked for the wheels to be painted grey to match my FF, but they forgot/miss/didn't do it. This is my trial period, but I am sort of warming up to the mean menacing look with the black car and black wheels.

    Absolutely not. Haha

    I mean, it will work if I don't plan on doing any reasonable shopping or picking up anything parcels of a decent size. 

    For daily nothing really beats the F12 right now, well maybe the FF if it's snowing. Or I need to carry 4. Or carry good sized cargo.

    In that case yes, once can totally lived with the 918 day in and day out. With the front lift, getting in and out of most places is a snap. 

    Well one still has to live with people constantly asking questions about the car or taking pictures.

    I asked about those things, because 918 (to me) seems like only hyper-car that looks elegant and sleek enough so you could actually drive it sometimes to meet some business partners & stuff. LaFerrari is too much drama and P1 is sci-fi toy style to be honest angry

    At they end of the day seems that Porsche made amazing job with 918! They made true drivers car that can be used pretty often in various situations Smiley

    While the data loss wiped out my tradition of going OT in this thread, I am gonna do it again all over haha.

    Of all the adjectives I can used to describe Ferrari, efficient is one of the last ones. But today it would seems they are 'efficient'.

    A press release came out today at around 9 am concerning airbag recalls for some 814 cars produced between Dec 19th to April 29th, including 458 Italias, FF, F12, 458 Spider, Speciale, Speciale A, Cali T and LaFerrari. Ferrari also uses Takata airbags it would seem. My F12 is part of that group.

    At 9:30am I got a call from my dealer saying they would need me to bring in the F12 TODAY to have the airbag exchanged and it would take no more than 30mins. 

    Needless to say, I am quite speechless on Ferrari's 'efficiency'. Kudos to them.

    @Whoopsy For efficiency in solving problems with Ferrari you can thank that to mr. Montezemolo kiss One of main objectives in his mandate regarding official services was to introduce 7yr free maintenance and quick response in case of technical problems on global level. 

    ------------------

    I have one more question regarding 918 Spyder. I know 350 km/h is insanely fast, but shouldnt hyper-car achieve higher top speed compared to supercars? From almost 900 hp car I expected something close to 370 km/h.

    488 GTB 661 HP - 341 km/h
