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.

Before anyone shouts Pics or it did not happen, here you are!

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.
