Speaking of McLarens, one day coming back from Alice's on 280 south a guy in a McLaren came up behind me, then drove around and gave me a big thumbs up as he passed. I guess he liked the QF...
my next car is a 570. There down to $120k. performance bargain. I was rolling with one on I-95 one night. Yea it was a massacre. He took me to gapplebees. But he loved the QV also.

Yeah, I’m willing to bet that just as there is no such thing as a cheap Ferrari there is no such thing as a cheap McLaren...

ferrari is definitely more reliable than mclaren but you’re 100% right. Honestly can same the same for the QV. in the end it’s what headache do you prefer.

My good friend is selling his highly tuned, legendary Litchfield Stage 5 , 775 bhp 2015 GTR and buying a newish facelifted GTR. That thing just eats anything that comes even close to sniffing distance. Epic car.

used. Low miles. Plenty in Florida for sale. I’m gonna DME tune it anyway.
your talking 570s...don't see many 570GT at around 120k..though if your looking for a slightly more "raw" car the S is for you....believe it or not the GT is a car you could road trip in...if you send your luggage on ahead of you :p
the steering on the S is a bit sharper, car is a little more nervous, in a good way, not a Holy Shit way.
either way you won't see yourself coming and going for sure!

Yesterday I was at a stoplight. BMW M3...probably a 2016 looking at the body style...comes up and revs. I hit the accelerator at the light change and smoked him. He did catch up but it was too late for him to overtake. Yeah, he's likely faster but I got the jump and we hit traffic before he could claim victory. I win!

I think that if you happen to notice drag radials on the back of a car, uh, you might be in a bit of trouble...LOL
My point being that there are more than a few GTRs making serious horsepower. That was an extreme example.

There were a couple guys on an old Audi S4 forum (Audizine) that bought GTRs (one guy built a crazy B5 S4 over a three year period, his forum name was Guruman—he owned Guru energy drinks). They both said how ridiculously easy it is to add HP to the GTR. With a few modes they were in the 750 range. So even non 2000 HP, non drag slick GTRs can handily gap a QV. But then again, I would take my QV any day over Godzilla.

@Domex my comment had nothing to do with it being a GTR or otherwise. it was simply that if I run across a car and see that it is sporting drag radials, this car is set-up to run straight line fast! Have an acquaintance who used to have a Ford GT, there was NOTHING about the car that made it stand out, nothing, except his rear tires being drag radials. He had a Heffner TT and made over 1000hp...LOL...needless to say super cars that normally would give a GT a run where left with their jaws on the ground.
I am familiar with the GT-R platform in so much that I was very lucky to have a student driver I was instructing at a CCA event show up in a GREDDY GT-R about 10 years ago. the one and only time I ever drove a GT-R, much less a highly modified one. Was never a fan, but came away more than impressed at the poise & raw power of the car, heavy yes, but with all that extra power it handled it incredibly well and was a pleasure to drive. the internals can certainly handle the xtra juice...

I've seen cars with slicks and wheelie bars on Detroit's Woodward Avenue. I didn't know they were legal for street use.
