Traded in the Z06 on a Brit

I never thought I would purchase a car like this, but I guess I'm having a third(?) life crisis or something. I tried for months to convince myself to get a c7 Z06 or a Viper instead, but the Viper just didn't feel right to me and the problems I had with my c6 left a slightly sour taste in my mouth with the apparent c7 problems not helping.

A friend of a friend was selling this very slightly used MP4-12C for a hell of a deal and I just couldn't pass it up. Please ignore the dirty garage.







More pictures and videos to come! I'll be taking it to the track sometime next month and I'm probably going to modify the car a bit.

So you're rich enough to buy both a Quattroporte AND a MP4-12C but can't afford to have your shit stored somewhere other than your garage?!

Just kidding, nice car.

She's marking her territory man...one day you might wake up with a tramp stamp saying "property of (her name here)"

Very nice car. Oh, and when she says remodeling, this means all your stuff is going to the Goodwill. I speak from experience sir.

She already painted my bedroom yellow. She likes cars though, gives me time alone when I need it, and she sure isn't bad to look at. Have to take the good with the bad

We're doing a custom exhaust setup on the car and some wheels/tires. That's probably about it, at least to start. I have to do some more research on the platform, I don't want to blow the thing up. The exhaust is pretty quiet in stock form though, which I think is a shame. With the location of the turbos there will be a lot of great spool noise with a proper exhaust setup.

I have always been a fan of McLarens with the F1 being my favorite, the thing about them is there really isn`t much to change on any of them except for what your doing, wheels, tires and exhaust......I`m sooo envious, and a little bit jealous of those lucky enough to have one.
