WTF, no wheel centres. For crying out loud....   lol.

I guess that people aren't kidding with this particular criticism. 

 

Track wheels get hot (surprise, surprise!) Wheel centres then pop out. Therefore, don't bother running with wheel centres. (Lotus Cup cars seem to be the same)

 I was, just taking the hiss an' havin' a larf....  Really don't care if wheel centres or not on such a focused car

 

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Had the chance to have a good poke around it last night at Hofmann's and I have to say I'm impressed! I was dubious of the rear end styling from the pictures, but in the flesh the whole thing looks fantastic. From the drivers seat it felt spot on and the LCD dash is very cool B-) - So much information available from the various screens. It looks great, sounds great and goes without saying that it will be very fast.

I'm very envious of anyone who has an order placed.

I'd guess the silver one is the road car and this one is the race car. Canards, splitter, tonneau etc...

Yes the yellow wrapped one on the Euro tour is the race version.

 

Yep, 'BTV' is the original Nurburgring test car.

Looks amazing. Sounds good too. I just wish it revved a bit higher then it would sound even better. Very cool thing. It deserves much better promotion than this and the lukewarm article it received in EVO.

We'll have to wait the next manufacturer days in april with the speed ban lifted I expect boutique car makers to go there en masse, Koenigsegg wants a go, Pagani will surely do it too...   The track will be busy for sure.

To give it even more credibility it was apparently seriously cold (snowing in earlier practices) meaning tyre/track temperature was an issue, that's why he looks quite busy with the wheel. There's still time to take out!!!:thumbsup:

If so, is it possible to get the race one road legal, or is this an exception? I assume the sequential gearbox is optional?
