    I too just moved to a mclaren. Left behind a very nice 360 Spider and Audi R8. I pick up the car this Wednesday evening and I’m definitely excited. Good luck and good choice

    I had a 458 and currently have a 570S. The Mac is so much better in many ways. The 600LT is even better.The downside is dealer support and parts availabilty.
    Drive the Mac and make a decision.

    Thanks Doc,
    I drove the LT, loved it although felt the 458 was quicker off the line and sound was better with my Capristo exhaust. I have until two more days to make the deal. We shall see if I can pull the trigger or not. Ive been a Ferrari owner for over 30 years..tough decision for me.

    I too am looking to jump from Ferrari to Mclaren into a 570s Spider but just researching and haven't decided yet. What were your factors? A 458 is an epic car and sounds great, we all know the 570 doesn't sound as good so what was it? From my research the 570 pulls like a freight train above 60MPH and runs 10.3 1/4 miles times stock which for the $ is pretty damn impressive. Not to mention the handling. I'm eager to hear your ownership experiences if you have time to share!

    I have been a Ferrari owner since 1974 and still have a Challenge Stradale. The 458 never pushed my buttons and suffered from numerous glitches. It was a 2011. The 570S just felt right and I like the feeling of lightness and direct steering. Never felt the sound of the 458 rivaled my prior V 12 cars or the CS except at “full bore.” Sound of Mac is not great either even with the sports exhaust.

    I still have my CS and have Ferraris for 30+ years as well. The 570S is better in every objective and subjective way. After all these years I am putting the CS on the block. The Mac is that good!

    I moved from a 360 to a 458 3 years ago and I love it. That having been said I just looked at a 600LT and it makes my 458 look dated. So am also thinking about it.

    It is beautiful!!

    I saw one that color at our local dealership and it is amazing. I did not see it though on the Configurator.

    Let us know how you like it

    If your Macca is anything like mine, you are going to love the car as well as the smile it seems to put on your face as well as everyone that you come across.

    I have had Ferraris for 30+ years and they can elicit everything from a thumbs up to a middle finger. The Mac brings universal love and excitement from all ages and sexes. You will also find that Mac owners are just enthusiasts and want to have fun and enjoy their cars...... which is also a pleasant surprise!

    Have fun and be safe!

    Thanks, looking forward to beginning my Mac journey. Defiantly more unique in my neighborhood compared to the other sports cars. The positive dealership experience was icing on the cake for me. I too have had Ferrari's for 30+ years, starting with my 308 back in 1984, never regretted any of my F cars (ok maybe the 308GT4...) Now i will have to root for Mclaren F1 more but will always support Ferrari F1.
