    I've been watching the news re McLaren's F1 successor, called the P1 apparently because they can't allow any dilution of the F1's mystique.

    There are other wild looking supercars and hypercars (and I suppose concept cars) out there and this one shares some of the same lines and design cues, but to me on this one nothing much looks out of place like it's just there for show. Looks like it just arrived from the future...or maybe like it just drove off the set of a big budget science fiction movie.....

    The competition, just launched officially in Geneva.

    First, the new Enzo replacement, LaFerrari. I'm not trying to be clever, that's actually what they decided to call it...the Ferrari LaFerrari.

    And Lambo's latest, the insane (and insanely priced) $4.6M (!!!) Veneno.

    Ferrari LaFerrari Official Launch Video

    Go for the 1080p and full screen on this. Heck, send it to you big TV.

    That's ^ the same video. :biggrin5:

    Never mind, here's Porsche's entry, the 2014 911 GT3...with a much less satisfying video.

    Typical of Porsche, it's not a huge visual departure (though it's the best looking of the bunch to my eyes), so here's a little info from MotorAuthority about what's under the skin.

    McLaren.....meh looks silly
    Lambo.... Meh looks supercar stupid and priced for the truly stupid.
    Porsche... Now just a high speed auto tragic Beatle. Really no stick?

    Ferrari....Still the only true classic Italian super car that everyone wants to own or make a car that looks like one. (Cough see car #1 or #2)

    I didn't see it but suspect that was the McLaren MP4-12C.

    I missed the mark on Porsche's entry. Don't know how I did that, must have been all the GT3 hype at the time.

    Here's their 2013 supercar, the 918 Spyder.

    Awesome! It's very cool to see all those great machines, that I'll never be able to afford to own, all in one place at the same time. Thanks!

    I still want that McLaren.

    Or more: I want the money to be able to afford and maintain that McLaren.
