I feel sorry for the dealers ... what is a car worth that shouldn't be driven for three months plus ??

Although the dealers are now closed, they will have a lot of costs and few sales until ?
I know of 570s selling yesterday and a deposit taken on a 600lt so people still buying which does seem bizarre but its happening..

Good mate bought this mid March. We were due to take her up to VMAX on 21 March and have a few drag races and video. Also we’re planning track days where I hope she will shine. Can’t wait to have a go in anger be my first go in a Mcl. Really looking forward to it smile

Driven mine a bit now and it is an awesome car... you are go from a little play to going really quite fast without realising it. The biggest surprise for me is how stable it is at higher speeds..

Really looking forward to the 600LT. Good first Mcl to have ago in! Its in good company my first air-cooled I had a go in was a 2.7 RS.

Another interesting thing is he tells me is he walked in ready to buy a 720s and walked out with a 600LT so it must be a v.special drive! Can't wait!!

You sure that wasn't just because of the good deal that the dealer offered. Assuming it was brand new of course.

Loving mine, or at least I was until the lock down.

I knew my final pre lock down drive would be the last outing for a while, still chose to take the 600lts.

Needs to be driven at least in dynamic mode. And those P Zeros - pfft.

No Skittles in smurf blue as I munch through my 100th party pack but I love that colour.

Some great vids on 720s, 600LT, Pista etc on Sport Auto youtube worth a watch.

You do realise cars make you mobile, so I don’t live everywhere I take photos? smile
