Thank you smile

I was there today with it. But unfortunately given it's key position in the entrance and so many pedestrians, it was impossible to move MSO 1 to the parade ground area for a demo drive.

I arrived there in my Ferrari wearing a McLaren shirt and cap smile Got a few comments as a result biggrin

The carbon delta shape on the bonnet looks stunning on the move. Makes you look like more of a fighter plane than a 765 already is wink

Thanks smile

It does look extremely aggressively on approach, as seen in the Beaulieu video. I'd love to see it in my rear view mirror biggrin

Best of British with McLarens welcoming all visitors to the show last week. Show pic and Insta link:

Just want to thank the moderator with so much time on their hands to go through and delete most of the youtube links and instagram links on this thread, making it rather worthless. Well done! bravo!

No point posting much here, so will only occasionally update this thread on Pistonheads from now.

Pics from Concours of Elegance and Salon Prive this Saturday and Sunday will all be on Instagram and elsewhere, bar one or two.

Mods are damaging this site IMO.

100%

I've just added some content from Salon Prive this Sunday to my Instagram (I won't share the link here due to the mods not liking that). Mods won't permit me to link my video here either. Easy enough to find if anyone searches for my car name on insta.

Today, video and images of the incredible McMurtry Speirling "Batmobile".

That colour is unbelievable. I've always been a fan of orange on cars, having gone for Inferno Orange on my Clio 182 back in the day. But that was nothing compared to this.

I also concur about the mods. A real shame.

I forgot to post the "post Brands Hatch" titanium exhausts pic.

That drive finished the exhausts to perfection biggrin




Lots more pics and video on Insta, but I won't post the link here due to the mods disliking that frown

The mods have ruined PH. Thought police! Not many enthusiasts even bother posting on PH now TBH. So much jealousy, green eyed envy and thinly veiled snide comments from no money proletariat why even bother? Will have to look at insta wink

Hi Jas thanks for sharing, unfortunately for me I don't do Insta or FB so will miss out due to heavy handed policing on here.
Thanks for me helping me out at Hampton Court with the lift button on my 720 much appreciated.

It was a pleasure to meet you, and sorry I didn't immediately realise you were stuck & so I initially just gave you a thumbs up thinking "fellow McLaren driver" LOL smile

Email me if you like, and I will point you in the right direction for a few key resources to help you get a lot more enjoyment from your 720S ownership experience. 720S is the best all round supercar you can buy IMO.

Don't stress over using FB, Insta etc. Many of us (me included) have got an FB account solely for car stuff and don't use it for other personal use. There are good car clubs that really only have a FB user interface for example.
