    Thanks for sharing the article. That M600 sounds like a lot of fun. Costly though. That McLaren/Porsche/Ferrari/Noble article would make a great read.

    Unfortunately, at that price there's no way they're going to be able to sell 50 cars a year.

    They need something that will truly set their car apart from everything else in the world in terms of performance. That's the only angle that will save them. I've got that something and it's being built at Hoover's, but, unfortunately, they're incapable of even responding to an email.

    I wish they would have done a little more fair of a comparison. There is a 90,000 pound difference in price. I think the GT2 RS is that price which makes me wonder how it would do against the M600.

    And No Lotus you can't drop a nugget like that and not provide more info!
