    While I agree that buying a used MP4-12C without warranty is not a clever idea, I do not share the other points you made.

    While problems with the electronics and satnav of the MP4-12C were quite...

    Sure, I just wanted to point this out because that's what the magazine usually says.
  3. N55: Thatís right but then Iím not interested in...

    Thatís right but then Iím not interested in straight line performance. I want the car to drive well on curvy roads and on a race track like the Nordschleife, and I need to be able to use the...
  4. N55: Exaxtly. The M235i comes with an open diff stock...

    Exaxtly. The M235i comes with an open diff stock and that becomes an issue when you increase the torque massively. A limited slip diff like from OS Giken, Quaife, Wavetrac or Drexler would be of...
  5. Both are great cars in their own right. And there...

    Both are great cars in their own right. And there are a lot of similarities like the mid-engined layout that provides such great traction and control, the excellent driving position and short front...
  6. N55: Yes exactly. With 400hp it’s already more than...

    Yes exactly. With 400hp it’s already more than struggling to get the torque on the ground as soon as there’s a corner, which I could still improve with an LSD, better suspension and wider tires. Add...

    They had problems with the tires, probably a faulty batch from Pirelli.

    Otherwise they would have used cup tires and probably gone a few seconds quicker...

    The 600LT will feature in the next Supertest of the German car magazine sport auto, out around the 10th of August.

    Drove a 570S two days ago which is already phenomenal performance wise, very...

    Or driveability. Iíve got an M235i with bolt-ons making 405 hp / 600Nm torque (crank) and you seriously feel the need for an LSD, wheelspin all over the place in the first 4 gears.

    With 800Nm Iím...
  10. You mean if itís registered in the US? Sure...

    You mean if itís registered in the US? Sure thatís possible. From what Iíve heard they will sell the TT version in Europe but that wonít be before 2021 😡
  11. Indeed, sadly not available in Europe due to...

    Indeed, sadly not available in Europe due to emission regulations, at least with this engine.
  12. C190 AMG GT: The guy driving for sport auto (Christian...

    The guy driving for sport auto (Christian Gebhardt) is seriously fast and not what you would call an amateur driver at all. He also participates regularly in races, for example the 24h NŁrburgring...

    From the side and from behind it looks awesome.

    The front however (IMO) is really, really ugly. Just like with the modern Continental or Bentayga models, these headlights just make it look like a...
  14. Yeah, no chance to get this road legal anywhere...

    Yeah, no chance to get this road legal anywhere in Europe...
  15. GT cars to stay naturally aspirated is not...

    GT cars to stay naturally aspirated is not accurate either, thereís always been the GT2...

    From what I read the GT3 engine cannot really be taken further, even the GT3 RS was not discernibly more...
  16. Doesnít make sense to me, sharing development...

    Doesnít make sense to me, sharing development costs is a good thing, for both companies.

    I guess this is one of the many reasons the Fiat/Chrysler group is failing, and is likely to disappear in...

    Just a remap without different downpipes / exhaust mods? That would be quite impressive indeed!
  18. You have never been to Switzerland then. If...

    You have never been to Switzerland then. If thereís ever been a country set on hunting people over speed limits, confiscating cars and all, it is the Swiss. I only drive there if thereís no other...
  19. IMO this decision has more to do with the...

    IMO this decision has more to do with the recently published focus of the Volkswagen brand on electric cars, and the substantial sums that are necessary to pay for the development costs of these...
  20. W205: The NŁrburging is a high-speed track, so that a...

    The NŁrburging is a high-speed track, so that a weight disparity can be compensated to a certain extent by additional hp.

    That being said, the more you approach the 7-minutes mark (which is far,...
  21. 991.2/992.1 3.0: Great project! Really excellent to go step by...

    Great project! Really excellent to go step by step and test every component like that.
  22. It’s not conceived to be a track car. People...

    It’s not conceived to be a track car.

    People who buy this have other track tools in their stable.

    For what it is - a powerful GT car - it performs quite well even on a race track. But...
  23. B9: Should you ever come to Germany I will take you...

    Should you ever come to Germany I will take you on a „leisurely“ 8 minutes drive around the Ring! ��
  24. I assume this will be based on the Giulia, they...

    I assume this will be based on the Giulia, they already have the 50/50 weight distribution there plus the all wheel drive as well. Pop in the engine from the Quadrifoglio and it's a good recipe. Add...
  25. If they are clever, this will be the layout for...

    If they are clever, this will be the layout for the 488 successor in order to share platform costs. But the Fiat group has not been good at this at all in the recent past, so I guess we will see.
