Well, it's landed and to say I'm pleased is the biggest understatement ever.

It looks simply awesome in the flesh, the details are superb, and the engine, wow!

What an absolutely amazing machine, I'm over the moon.

Small update..........It's just utterly brilliant in every way you can possibly imagine!

The engine is absolutely amazing....quite a thirsty girl though!

Of all the things I've ever owned this one has really got me!

Looking good Bertie,

Took mine down to Le Mans last weekend, proved a brilliant long distance GT, although it was hard work keeping it down to a sensible pace !

Yes, use great caution with right foot, my F12 loses traction v easily under power, very especially in Race setting.. Conclusion is, uber dangerous cars but fun and OK as long as you understand how dangerous, before its too late. Keep tyre pressures spot on and watch tyre temperatures get up to 30c plus before unleashing that V12, enjoy !!

I love this picture - how the owner of such an exotic and expensive supercar still camps at Le Mans rather than staying in some boutique chateau. bowthumbup

Cheers, to be honest i’d much rather camp at LM together with loads of other genuine friendly enthusiasts than stay in any smart hotel, just wouldn’t even consider it. Love Le Mans, such a special weekend !
