Can't believe anyone would come onto a car forum and slate anyone else for buying a bloody McLaren !!!! Lovely supercar, I am very jealous.

Wow, very nice, congrats DK. I recall you saying a while back the rarer MP4-12C is a considerably more special machine than the 540C/570S will ever be, she looks gorgeous!

the MP4-12C is a Super Series Car (or the predecessor for), the 540/70 are Sports Series. The successor to the 12c was the 650s and latterly the 675-LT. so yup, it will be a more special car.

Had an extended drive in a 540...holy moly! what a machine...personally I would have wanted the current R8 v10+ over it.

Sweet ride DK! hope you're enjoying it!
