Don’t think it’s the suspension - on smooth dual carriageway it’s fine - on horrendously potholed essex back roads it’s not ! Neither is my AMG C63 which is actually more crashy suspension !!
Lovely looking car with the orange callipers, Im also in Essex and at last viewing a 12c tomorrow (6 weeks after placing a deposit! ). I agree that the roads here are terrible with pot holes not to mention the number of speed humps. Are you having any issues without a nose lift?

The 12c has a couple of rubber buffers which act as bump stops...only problem is they are fixed to a soft part of the underside so get ripped off if caught too hard...cheap to replace though, although I did damage the front undertray on mine once which was not so cheap to replace. Anyhow, took them off a long time ago and never had any issues over the last 5 years driving around all sorts of places in the UK and Europe.

Looks lovely Dank, just like mine (black etc) except I have diamond cut wheels. I have the standard exhaust so I`m a little jealous of your sound track, but then I`m doing a track evening tomorrow and guess your car may be too loud...??

That does look proper evil dank!

Thats exactly how I use my 650; as often as I can, for any journey long or short, and in any weather.

Cannot be a coincidence it has not given me so much as one moment of grief.

Enjoy!

yes i agree, using the car as intended can only be good for it. I am don't care about future values etc, just enjoying the moment and experience of driving such an amazing car, life is too short and no one knows what's round the corner.... enjoy life now!

popped out to get milk, 2 hours driving later, back home! Ha ha, can't stop driving it, it's such an amazing machine, still pinching myself when i park up and turn round to see it, such a jaw dropping car in the metal.

after it's first snow foam wash, looking rather shiny

I wouldn't have ever considered a 12C in black but that looks fantastic! VR 12C here in North Essex, would be great to have a 12C outing!

love the volcano red, test drove a spyder in that colour, but for me the black 12C looks so mean, and stealthy!

definetly up for a 12C autumn drive, maybe we can get some other Macca's to join in?

dates / location ? Cherry Tree pub in Stambridge is a good place to meet up - supercar friendly
