    Here is a video of Drag Times review of the 600lt.

    Just a touch over 100 miles on the odometer and they are beating the crap out of this car. Break in period??



    He comes to the same conclusion. 320k is too much for the 600.

    I agree but damn they look good with all that carbon and those Senna seats.

    I was thinking about the break in as well. If that car doesn't end up with engine problems, it will be a miracle! Additionally, the car won't be able to perform at 100% until it is broken in properly.

    Note to self- don’t buy the Fistral Blue 600 when it comes up for sale.

    I agree. The visual changes from the 570 to the 600lt aren't quite enough to justify the price bump imo, but I do think the 600lt looks far better than the 720.

    Just read that coupe production is done- no more orders. If true, that might keep numbers down to something interesting. Next model is also supposedly hybrid...

    I heard about 300 or less coupes in the US. That will definitely help the coupe.

    Whoa- that is less than I would have thought.
    I just checked, and my car entered “in production” status yesterday. Wondering if that means built in a week or two. Any clue?

    Don't doubt it by any means, just a first impression.

    I went from a Ferrari F430 Spider to the 600LT. It was a choice between that or the more expensive 488GTB, and frankly the 600LT is a more engaging car besides being more exclusive. I originally wanted a 458 but couldn't find a good low mileage one at the price I wanted to pay for one, so decided to take the plunge to a new model instead.

    Great call! Love to see some pics when you get some time.

    430 to 600 is going to be a great change. Love to hear more thoughts as you get more seat time.

    You guys are a bunch of McLaren haters why are you even on this chat? Frankly other than the fact that they use the same basic platform and are mid-engine the designs of the 12C - 720S are very different, as are the 570S. Its like saying the Ferrari 360/F430/458/488 are very similar, which they are, but also different. 458 and 488 are actually very close in design. With McLaren you are talking about a relatively new company that only started making cars 8 years ago and has production capability much lower than Ferrari or Lamborghini, and a company that prefers not to dilute their brand with an SUV or a front engine luxury car (California/Portofino) or a shooting brake (FF/GTC4 Lusso). You just can't compare Ferrari?Lamborghini with McLaren at this stage, the company structures are totally different. I love Ferrari, but it is now a public company that cares about its stock price than its cars I fear, and Lamborghini is just another cog in VW/Audi's wheel, with the Huracan basically a fancied up Audi R8. I would rather have an exclusive cutting edge McLaren

    First of all, congrats on the purchase of the 600.

    Second of all, please dont start all the crap about "Mclaren haters" and such. I seriously hope you are joking with that post because its very hard to be a Mclaren hater when you own the damn car! Ive had enough of that brand allegiance nonsense from Fchat- I sure as hell dont want to deal with it here.

    I didn't mean to offend you nor was I replying specifically to you, but to some of the general commentary here. Of course I doubt there would be any real McLaren haters in the Mclaren chat, why bother being part of the chat if one is a McLaren hater?

    I dont know what general commentary you are referring to as since they split the websites, its a pretty cordial and friendly environment here. Either way- just discuss your car and no need to start brand wars here. We are all car enthusiasts of all brands and we want each manufacturer to continue to improve. Right now Mac is doing pretty damn well and has my vote with my wallet and my mind share.
