    Saw the 600LT at Goodwood and bought one. Checks the looks, lightweight, price and sound boxes.

    600LT looks to be masterful but I am going to wait for the 750LT.

    My thought as well. The 4 liter is amazing and will be a monster in the 7xxLT

    It could be a while. As in YEARS. They haven't even announced a 720S Spider yet. Then LT coupe. Then LT Spider

    I’m 6’4”. Did an extended test drive of the Perf. While Made it work, long drives it just was a compromise. I have relegated to the fact I can’t be a Lambo owner. Just not enough space for us bigger guys.

    Test drove on Tuesday. Reminded me of my favorite twisties car, the 2011 Porsche GT3RS sans three pedals. It gives you a ton of comfort heading into apexes, has a pleasing amount of powerful torque exiting turns, and grumbles and pops like the 675LT.

    Your black 600 LT is the best one I've seen so far.

    i used to say that.....until i got enamored with the marque and started making an effort to figure it out.

    HOWEVER, that is an issue they need to think about. a confusing product line does not allow people to dream about owning one long enough, and then they are yesterday's car and past its sell by date.
    mclaren needs to be careful.

    I don't know prompted me to read through 9 pages, but the original question was about Ferrari doing a 'lesser' car to compete with the 570/600.

    The 570 punches way above its class already and competes (numbers wise) with cars that are supposed to be much higher up the food chain, which would make it silly for Ferrari to make the effort. If anything, they have to make the 488 outperform the 570. Which leads me back to another point. Most of this chatter is just magazine racing, since most owners won't venture anywhere near a race track (which is sad).

    In all these pages there was only one guy that posted a video in his 570 at VIR. Good for him! He has the experience from the perspective of the car as well as his limits. BTW.....Based on what I could see/hear, I think most of your lost time to your buddy was coming from overcooking the corner entry and scrubbing off way too much speed. As a result you couldn't get on the gas soon enough for the next straight. For the most part your lines were good. I know nobody cares, but I thought I would just put some experience out there that may help in the future. :)
