Not sure why you're posting here!?

It only has 500+ bhp, 2 seats, exotic looks & is relatively rare, pathetic!

Please get off & let us continue discussing McLaren depreciation & how much 'overs' to pay for a 911 gt something.2
What a rude and ignorant comment...actually it 610 bhp....if you have nothing adult to say....shut it!

Im looking forward to seeing how trappy you are face to face.. mean while grow up PLEASE! LOL!

Im VERY familiar with forums...but not knowing the person who originally posted their 'humour' makes it difficult to know how to take it...my response ... was knee jerk...so maybe both of us need to 'curb our enthusiasm?

The beautiful subversive and liberating ethos of Curb reminds us, Not to take ourselves too seriously.
Sadly some drivers forget to apply this value

Val,

Ferdi’s Post was IMO actually pretty obviously laced with much irony. Have a second read, firstly he describes many of the attributes your car has that also defines a Supercar in general and then takes the mickey out of a few trend topics that tend to default their way into threads, namely McLaren depreciation and Porsche Overs discussion.

So, before this thread gets out of hand with people thinking they are attacking people when they are not, we would love to see some pics of your new car, which sounds great, especially being yellow...I am a bit biased towards yellow...this is my R8 V10 Plus Plus.... wink

I do believe that Val is a lady. Looking at her profile you are in danger of receiving a dry slap from one of her mules hehe

Hi Val

You're dead right about the V10 being utterly different to the V8. They're chalk and cheese. I still can't make my mind up which one I prefer. The V8? A nice, quite rapid, GT car for me The V10? A fire breathing beast. Tbh I'd hate to drive a Zonda or a Koenigsegg or anything like that (well, I wouldn't of course - but you know what I mean!) because that V10 is as fast as I ever want to go.

Hi BobG

I have owned many fast cars...the Nissan GTR35 included...and my favourite car,
untill The R8 v10 plus...what an animal! I traded in my R8 V8 Spyder for this one...no regrets there, the power of the V10 is all that I need...and then some.

that doesn't actually sound like a bad deal based on the trade bid against mine!
