The one on my car is supposed to make it very difficult however I see all of the different methods as security layers all of which that can be defeated with time but hopefully the layering of security would make the car less attractive to a skilled thief. Read more

Thanks for the long reply however looking at the specs of the cars and their intended purpose, it shouldn’t surprise many the 600LT has significant advantages over a Turbo S Cab at the track. The 600LT is significantly lighter, more powerful and has better aero than the cab. Read more

I always find it odd/amusing that the UK buys more convertibles than anywhere else in Europe but then I do think we focus hard on enjoying the sun when it’s available given it’s historic scarcity. I say historic as every year goes by we are seeing the sun more and more, in fact just last week we had our hottest day Read more

Have you been out in a GT3RS? I have, it’s a dream car of mine but comfy/luxury it is not, it also has problems with ride height in the same was as the 600LT. It’s also a crazy people magnet like the 600LT. Read more

This can be used in all weather conditions too, it’s just not designed to be stored outside for extended periods of time.

In McLaren’s case it was done primarily for engineering in so much there is almost no exhaust piping which of course saves weight. Read more

The car is fine to be left in the rain for hours at a time and it’s not an issue when the car is running, it’s just not designed to stored in the rain which nobody is obviously going to do other than our tester who doesn’t have the means for a garage.

This would be comparable to a GT3 RS and that car would have exactly the same issues possibly baring the exhaust which isn’t really an issue unless you store the car outside for extended periods which nobody would obviously do.

As a Porsche fan the 911 Turbo S Cabriolet is absolutely not in the same league as a 600LT. They are designed for entirely different things to be fair to the Porsche but it’s fair to say on a track, the Porsche wouldn’t know which way the McLaren went. The Porsche is a road car and the 600LT is a track car.

It’s worth understanding McLaren logic. The LT is a car intended for track but is road legal. The exhaust position isn’t a problem whilst the car is running and nor is at an issue sitting in the rain for several hours, it’s just not intended to be stored outside. Read more

Lane splitting or filtering as it’s known here benefits all and is certainly far safer than sitting waiting in traffic to be rear ended that often ends in horrific injuries for the biker. Read more

I have road/track driven an F12 and it’s an amazing car and amazingly exciting to drive in part because it does feel like it wants to park you in the nearest Bush/wall/barrier all of the time. The peddle travel is unbelievably long but a stab on the peddle even with all aids switched on can cause a serious twitch and Read more

England is fairly liberal in many different ways, it’s often misunderstood just how liberal.

That BMW engine and ones that came before it are ultra tuneable. 700bhp+ is possible without opening up the engine and changing anything. There have also been some 1000bhp+ cars for some of the older variants of this engine. Read more
