Fair one, actually. Haven't driven the Perf yet, only a 488, standard Huracan, and 720S. I guess I didn't quite put across what I meant properly. What I meant was, the 720S felt like it was the easiest car to drive VERY quickly. Even though it's an exhilarating experience, it's just that the car is so damn good, and so bloody capable, it makes my fat arse feel like a driving god. Meanwhile the 488s and Huracans of the world are good cars but a normal pleb like me can't extract that much performance out of them without feeling like I'm gonna die!
I think as you say it is easy to drive fast becasue it's effortlessly fast, a proper weapon.

Is this on a track LJ? Tbh, I don't think a 720S can be pushed very hard on normal roads.
Yes, track.

On road, I found you can only use full throttle for 2-3 seconds, no matter your starting speed. It's just too quick.


I absolutely LOVE it though.

Good grief.

Love to know what happened here considering the driver said the exhaust was dumping out flames and the road was staying lit after.

Please don't take this as gospel, but I am fairly reliably informed that the Senna belongs to a Mr.Gary Robert Foster Jones, who is business partner of Mr Keith Speller. Mr Speller's son Aaron is the guy that everybody on line is naming as the person who crashed the Senna. Aaron Speller runs an on line blog in which he runs videos of the cars in his Father's collection, including the McLaren P1 registered P1 OMG and Lamborghini Aventador registered KS 1. The cars are not his, but his Father's. If the mods think I may have broken any PH rules by posting names, please remove my post. Thank you.
Tanning shops - explains a lot...!
at least its not money laundering using tanning shops to wash it.

I read on Instagram that a car was being pre-checked at a Swedish dealership and some mixture of oil/fuel was discharging from the exhaust and started a fire within the engine bay, given what Salomondrin said about his this seems likely, he probably put more miles on his than the majority of customers which may have increased the odds of it happening to him, I'm guessing they'll do a recall of the other cars and check it out.

400 miles in two weeks was it not?

Glad you're enjoying it so much, that's what all the hard work is for after all!

I found the same with my 720. On the road there is nowhere you can floor it through a couple of gears, it's just too ballistically fast. You just stamp, hang on for half a breath and brake hard!
Despite the blood pumping exhilaration I found that to be quite limiting, on a track it would be an entirely different matter of course.

Instagram has some nice cars. Wonder what his story is.
His dad owns a chain of Essex tanning shops I think.
