Default My brush with a McLaren MP4-12C

Yesterday I was walking to my business place and what do I see parked right in front of my store?

The McLaren MP4-12C.

It is really nice in orange. The guy down the street from me has one (3 mins away) and he was nice enough to take it out and wash it. I wish I had my camera with me.

that's awesome, but it's kind of scary to think GTR for a 3rd of the price of MP4-12C, can out gun the McLaren 0-60 (at least according to MT tests)

There is a few cars the GT-R can outrun. The new one does 0-100 kph in like 3 seconds Plus I've parked in front of a GT-R before and it is one massive beast.

according to Motor Trend's latest test, the newest GT-R can do 0-60 in 2.7 sec. now, that's in jet territory, almost

Now I'm confused. It says Fire Lane No Parking, but then its right infront of a handicapped space? What's going on with that?

it means you can't park parallel to the red line on the other side of the line.
