I think it just looks too much like I lotus but hey I'd rather have a nissan skyline r34 gtr (sumo power/do luck) or even a mazda rx7 (veilside kit and top secet tuned) :)

Yum but it looks like a flying satsuma. Now in Midnight Black....

Midnight black...it'll match the Wii...nice....;)

Realistically the chances of me ever owning as slim to say the least.

MkV Spitfire VB anyday for me. Now there's a real machine.

it's got guns and everything....maybe not a multitrack CD changer (do they still make them?).

WOW that is awesome!! I am a huge Mclaren fan possibly the biggest Mclaren fan around Becky! What is your BF's dad called? did he develop or help develop the new car or is he on the road car side of things?

Road Car side, manages Merc for the north of England, but they get to see all the other cool things Merc do.

He had a meeting a couple months ago with Ross Brawn and the other Merc managers where they got shown the new cars and things, as well as talking about Schumacher (apparently his insurance premium is astronomical)

Any chance of getting me on the inside? I pay for my Mclaren mercedes account at the moment like £60 a year for inside gossip etc etc!

Ouch £60. Unfortunately I only get whats trickled down to my boyfriend. There's a fair bit of stuff that he can't tell anyone until it's press released :(

I cant wait to see the Lotus F1 car. I love lotus cars so il be supporting them this season, plus they have 2 good drivers. Maybe not good enough to win the championship but who knows???

Lotus Xgiege track days at Silverstone are the best there is. Super Charged machines! Absolute rapid! Glad they are in the F1 this season! Shame Gascoyne is with them tho, I cant stand the guy! Kova and Jarno should do a good job if they have a decent car!
