I’m up for this, in my Maserati as the 650 is now gone.

Just back from what I would say was my first proper drive on my 600LT, on a known route, with more familiarity with the car.

W o w.

Exhaust sound on the cabin is a constant thing, the burble is always there, even at idle. Driving in Sport P, Sport H and Manual atm, as doing running in.

Managed to try a tunnel with side window slighlty lowered, not pushing really hard but dropped a gear and accelerated to 5.5k rpm and sound was insane, had a big smile!

Today C&M are doing a Nissan GT-R event, imagine they were over crowded.

Honestly atm I want to enjoy the car w/o any distractions, so apol's if I haven't proposed any meeting there...

Is there a specific 600LT owner's manual I can download online? I can only find the one for 570S.

McLaren is on quite the roll with their road cars. You can't really go wrong. As far as what is incrementally quicker over a few 10ths, is really just good for bragging rights down the pub or cat coffee with your friends. In the real world, they all are more than fast enough. I honestly have a hard time getting into full throttle on the street. At the track I have yet to come across anything that I can't run away from.

I ran across an app called 'Dragy'. It allows one to record acceleration times on your own car. I have yet to get it to work on my phone, but the app is searchable for others. The Macs and particularly the 570 numbers were very telling. Mac underestimates performance.

Great, where can I find details, is it for every supercar? Sounds a good idea.

I've just registered to attend...only 30 minutes away from me so as long as it stays dry, it should be a good Saturday morning outing

Great, just registered, will be there if no rain.

Thinking of going through Kenilworth north to the venue, motorway is too boring.

Anybody through the same route? Happy to meet midway for a convoy?

I registered yesterday. Probably can't avoid motorways since I'll be heading up from Surrey - and it will mean a fairly early start even using the motorway.
