    Cool My Experience with 3 (Three) MC12's

    First one.. just got shipped in and was being prepped for the track..





    Second one.. being held in storage until the owner comes back to the country..





    Third one.. we were taking it out for a spin with the new owner, lets just say for $1.7mil or what ever the going rate is for this car, I feel that the Enzo is a FAR better car.

    Not worth it in my opinion, really wide, sitting inside of it just sort of resembles the feel of a LeMans prototype car, like an RS Spyder (I would assume since I never sat in one of them). I was surprised by how quiet it was at idle, really didn't expect it.

    But what is awesome about it, is the insane amount thought that went into the design of it. We had one up on the lift because it was getting some exhaust work done, and the design of the c/f under tray was amazing. There were little ridges in certain areas to deflect air to the brakes, other portions to deflected air to certain areas. Really awesome to see such small design adjustments.

    So..

    Enzo > FXX > MC12

    I have heard that the MC12 is better in design then the Enzo and possibly faster around a race track . I am not a Big fan of the color combo but if I ever have the choice I will pick the MC12 over the Enzo anytime

    True, then again I don't think I'd ever be able to justify such a substantial amount of money on a car. I think my peak limit would be ~$500k

    I was going to take a picture next to it and a picture of me in it, but didn't have the time. Its low, I mean real low, but extremely wide.

    True, I'm only 19, turning 20 on the 27th; I have my entire life to work towards success.

    The only thing in my tracks is that I most likely won't be able to drive manual because of my foot.. but I have a big project planned in the upcoming 2-3 years. All I can hint at is Italian+Twin Turbo+F1 Transmission
