Why no manual? If manual comes, I will buy. If not, no interest.

Thanks- I was very happy to have had a chance to drive the Senna. Looking forward to the 600LT experience.

Interesting that they have priced the car competitively against the GT3RS ADM range.

GT3RS + ADM = 270-290
600LT + options= 270-300

Good thing you like the manual 991.2 gt3 because other than going Singer, you don't have ANY other supercar company offering manual haha.

My understanding of 600LT production numbers is McLaren will build XXXX 600LT coupes and then subsequently offer the same number of open top cars; correct?

You're looking at 600 and 600

Take away ADM on a non WP RS and the difference in the 2 become 50-85k(215-220msrp). That's not too competitive to the RS but we'll have to see how the 600 ends up behaving on the track to determine if a good price in general.
I've read a lot about the car but I have not read/seen anything about brake cooling or engine/trans cooling compared to the 570's which suffer in this area, did they work on these items on the 600? I know on the AMG GTR there are no brake cooling ducts and the car really suffers on short straight tracks.

No, they will build the car for a certain time period, best understanding is 12 months, and produce as many as demand calls for while fitting them in between Senna and 720 production. No mention, officially, of Spider yet but very surprised if it doesn’t get made. So good for people who want one but not limiting production doesn’t do anything to help support prices.

In the US sadly it’s true (can’t do a corvette or other American car personally). I want an Exige Cup 430. My lotus are the only cars I miss. If Mac made a manual I would be on the list.

Can you specifically state data that supports the GT R braking issue that you allude to?

And that's why I'd never pay that high of an ADM on a GT3RS.

Totally get that but that's like saying it's easy to get them also...I don't know many people who get the RS cars without being WAY early

True. My point was just that RS is a great car at MSRP, but with current crazy ADMs, other cars are more compelling.

Yea always a debate, I've had my Touring since March and can't wait to get the RS, I just feel like the Manual is just......slow now. Anything to make the car faster I say. The other thing I like about Maccas is that they put the paddles in the right place... on the steering wheel. I will never understand why Lambo Ferrari, Aston put them on the column it just doesn't make sense
