    I'm gutted, i'm going to cancel my order :p

    Not a fair race.

    GTS is over 130hp down on a car that is very light with carbon tub, etc...


    I do love the 650S though , i'd have one over the 458 any day.

    It better be much quicker, its twice the price.

    Next lets compare a Nissan Cube with a audi R8.

    Hang on ! Are you telling me that not only doesn't this car have an M156 engine it's also slower than a car costing up to £100k more ? How on earth have we all been so stupid ?????!!!! We're lucky you're about on here Don to save us all from ourselves.

    I will eat my shoe if any road-going GT gets the 6.2. The 4.0 is different for sure, but theres nothing wrong with it whatsoever.

    However, after gleefully stating earlier that I pick up my car in a couple of weeks, I got an email today saying theres production delays and it won't arrive at the dealer until 7th September. So pick up will be 8/9th at best :mad:
