P1 from a looks only perspective.
That said I'd likely choose Zonda over a P1 over a Huayra

If I can remember correctly, either Scottish Pete or Paul Habsy posted that the build quality on the Hauyra is sensational.

I think for your stable Pablo, however, I would go for the 288 GTO and then a LaFa when it eventually becomes available to you.

I saw the P1 at Goodwood and the Hauyra at Monterey and the Pagani wins on visual impact and detail. I'm a little too "mere mortal" to ever report on how they drive!

It's like the 12c I suppose, technically supreme over the 458, but lacking a certain je nais sais quoi

Each to their own I suppose.

Pablo - Ferrari is still doing dummy testing or who knows what but they seem to be having their issues.

P1's are being tested by owners in a week or so.

Pagani is proven - suggest reading the Mclaren forum to get a better handle on the P1.

Pablo - MclarenLife.com which played a large role in my purchase of the MP4.

IMHO, it will drop 20-30% over the next 18 months before firming up in 3-5 years and then becoming a potential classic.

I've been offered two P1's for 2013 delivery already for a little over list.. (and 2 458 speciales at 15k over)

Seems lots of speculators are getting cold feet!

458 Speciales aren't limited and last I heard there are open slots on the P1.

Why would anyone pay over on either one - should be interesting to see where the P1 goes - I don't think 30% is going to happen but ... if it does

So I'd take a 458 Speciale, hands down. Even over a LaFa.

I would also vote neither. I love the engineering on the Huayra but ultimately I don't like the styling, the ridiculousness of that colour dashboard, the terrible sound of that engine. BTW, I would say the Huayra is also not for sale for mere mortals - apart from price, I've heard the waiting list is many years.

The P1 is not remotely interesting to me. I'm actually not sure why. Certainly the styling is a big part of it.

The LaFerrari resonates a lot more with me. But if I were you, Pablo, I'd get a 288 GTO. With a 458 Speciale on the side.


Onno

If it is a car you are looking to drive, definitely the P1.

Jamie , i am not buying it to make money ,but also i would not feel confortable feeling a drop in price of 20-30% . I think you have over estimated thos figures! Rethink about it please!

Ummmmm , 458 Speciale with the drift control thing it does appeal to me but still i think is something out of the league!

Yes , i am looking to drive it as i do with all of my cars. I would not like to have a museum! But Boxer , what in your opinion if i may ask , would be 3 bad things that you could find on the P1? I ask as this way it helps to analize the pros and cons!
