    There is something weird about the roof line but it may be on photos only.

    What's weird about it?


    Re: McLaren on a winning streak

    It looks pretty long, which I like. I'm a fan of long, cabin forward designs.

    Re: McLaren on a winning streak

    Problem with the R8 is that it looks too much "Audi" and not that different from a TT. But that's why many in Europe like it...


    Re: McLaren on a winning streak

    Well, I did own one, but the R8 isn't very long or cabin forward IMO. It's actually a but stubby looking.

    It doesn't really look like a TT in real life, seen both cars next to each other many times and there is no resemblence but of course it looks like an Audi, no doubt about it. It is an Audi Smiley, even if the manufacturer is actually Quattro GmbH (now Audi Sport) and not Audi. Smiley

    The roofline actually tried to mimic a jet fighter's cockpit.

    Funny  - that was going to be my choice too Smiley, but I was waiting to see it first. I almost did the LT in Fire Black but that would have buried all the carbon bits.

    They'll get "there" eventually. It took Porsche also a while to get the front lights right after the sunny side up eggs look disaster. Smiley  Smiley

    Peter,

    I have made a few month ago a relative good comparison. 

    To make it short, both cars a very fast on curvy roads. 

    Highway driving is much smoother with the 650s.

    GT3RS is very stiff - to stiff for normal road. The 650s is more like a flying carpet, which confuses a lot of people, they think that the car could not be fast on track and be so soft. But it can.

    When you have had lot of Porsche cars (911) you take seat in the GT3RS and you are from beginning very fast with the car.

    When starting to drive the 650S you have to learn the car. One of the things is brake steering. You have to brake later to take advantage of this technique. Maybe 4-5 track days and then you familar with that. 

    The 650s spider offers much more then 911 GT3rs, you can drive it open, slow, with your girlfriend, to a dinner, fast, loud, in the city, on highway, on track ...

    The GT3rs makes only fun when you drive it sporty and loud, nothing for city or with passengers.

    If I have to choose just one -> 650s. If I have to choose one car for track only -> GT3RS.

    My neighbors have no problems with my cars or my bikes. Maybe some of them are jealous but didn't heard anybody saying something negative. Lot of people stops and asks about the McLaren. I have a Harley CVO Breakout with Kesstech. Man, this is loud! My neighbors here me from very far and never have someone complained.

    Re: McLaren on a winning streak

    Hehe, that's interesting to read. I took the GT3 out this afternoon and it does attract some attention, but nothing compared to when I tried the 570S. I'd never seen so many phones pointed at me..
