    Well if it depreciates like Lambo Gallardo, you'll be seeing them for ~1/2 price with under-30k mile after a 3-4 yrs. That's when the real tuning fun starts tho Click here to enlarge

    Right ??? I saw one rolling around LA the other day that had a fixed wing and some aero kit and it looked amazing and sounds ridiculous.

    Does anyone know how the MP4's turbos are mounted??? I'm just wondering if they're set up in a traditional fashion (exhaust manifold -> turbo)or like the S63 Tu (shortest route, between the V of the motor). Reason why I'm asking is because if it's setup in a traditional fashion, it def leaves open a lot more aftermarket turbo options open.


    Def be great to see a new high HP exotic car to compete with the GTRs, Supras, 911 Turbos + TT-Gs.

    Shouldn't be too hard to get at those turbos. This car has some serious potential:

    With a mid-engine rear wheel drive setup it's pretty much ideal.

    I'm not sure. There might be a bunch of stuff missing as it is a technical cutaway to show the motor and so forth for display.

    I wish he kept the camera pointed backwards more so we could hear that boosted V8 sing.

    With how many 458's I have been seeing I think I would rather have this to be different. I love the 458 as well though. Wish my hardest decisions in life were reduced to having to pick between those two cars.
