    This is very striking combination. I see this thing sky-rocketing prices on some auction in few years ahead.

    I wonder if Weber had to pay list price ...


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    BTW - The car color scheme reflect the livery that his #17 919 had at Le Mans.

    The inside is  a bit dull , some red accent would of been nice. But the outside is amazing . It works so well  and makes the car look very sporty and special

    Looks like Mark got car #803. I wonder if there is any meaning for him.

    I'm sure Mark had a nice discount on his 918, but still, it's always awesome to see a race car driver backs up the corporate talk with his own money on the line Smiley

    no auto dimming rear view mirror .. that little latch is so last century and completely out of place in such a high tech car


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Well, it doesn't even have auto dip on the passenger side mirror when in reverse.

    Does the LaF have auto dimming rear view mirror?  I know on the P1, it doesn't have one either, which for the life of me, I can't understand why...

    They say #605 in the article.


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    I just zoom in the picture and try and read the number, looks like 803 to me but could also be 605 

    I might have a definite number later, our group is trying to invite Mark to join.

    Not sure if he had a discount, but he probably paid the tax-free price (which, btw, considering the tax rates in Australia would make it one hell of a deal). Smiley


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Spyderidol:

    Note that he has gotten rid of the acid green calipers , which would clash with the color scheme. Good Man! 

    Smiley Car looks amazing.

    doesn't Mark W live in England?

    They move between Monaco and Switzerland .  F1 drivers living currently in Switzerland , or in the past years are :

    Prost, Schumacher, Villeneuve, Alonso, Hakkinen, Raikkonen, Hamilton,  Vettel, Massa, Heidfeld,  etc... and Ecclestone!

    ..But in Webber's case he lives in England and I believe Australia in the off-season.


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    Oh and no, I haven't neglected my 918 even with the RS. But it had been on modelling duties lately. First it was atomic80 and now a sneak peek of a shoot from another photographer friend:

    Mark already owned a GT2RS and GT3 4.0 before he became a Porsche team driver. He genuinely love Porsches and I've seen him ready Porsche magazines going way back. 

    And yes, Webber lives in England and back here in Australia during the off season.

    He is part of our owner's group and he just finished a 1200 mile round trip to and from the Ring.

    Here is him avoiding the carousel.

    What colour is that Nick? Stunning. 


    Re: 918 latest news Thread Closed

    The 918 versatility as a convertible sets it apart from the rest of the supercars.

    Standard basic Basalt Black. But photographers seems to like to put a weird tint on every picture.
