It can also be more hassle to go through insurance, some require 3 quotes for the repair, plus it'll need declared on their insurance so can cause their premium to go up in subsequent years, might not be worth the bother for a minor amount of damage.

Cancel that one and sell the lotus and go up to 570s or 650s.

12C is a weapon but next generation is so far ahead.

Still congrats, beatiful car.

ugly is very subjective, think it's a uk thing as most british race brands are viewed as very exotic in the rest of the world.. as for "all entineering and no soul", sounds very clarkson, have you ever driven one on a track? i would say it's got more soul than practically any other comparable car, micro volumes in the big scheme and pure racing pedigree?

The mp4 is gorgeous, the 570 on the other hand is pure marmite on the looks department. ugliest rear end going.

I would have dropped a compliment but ive no idea what that sentence meant when you posted it. Anyhow congrats, I think its the only brand id look at other than Porsche - if I could step up money wise that is!
