Welcome dude - I was told from some guys at STL Motorsports they can not post on f-chat but for whatever reason they can and do post here. The SLS is gorgeous as I was at the dealer ... must have just missed you.

I think you need to restart the thread as you post all the spots and start clean in 2011.

You were there? When? I was there around 8:30 Weds morning..drove by, saw it, turned in, hopped out, snapped 3 pix, continued on my way. Parking lot was packed at that moment so who knows. Are you talking about this thread or on fchat? I am also on lamborghini talk but I have not found any Stl members..I prefer Lamborghinis over Ferraris...that opinion is both from videos and pictures but also from personal experience...interior of a Gallardo LP560 vs a F430 Spider..LP560 is much more comfortable and nice inside. Sound when revving it - LP560 sounds so much better. And I haven't driven the 430..only the Gallardo. I would take your neighbor's color combo 458 over a Gallardo though..

Took the Range Rover in and was there at that time. I have seen some pictures of the NEW LP700 - awesome machine and whacks Ferrari all CF. Neighbors 458 is awesome, he added a ton of exterior CF recently ... Ferrari has had a lot of issues with the 458.

The McClaren is going to put a dent in the competition along with the new Lotus line up.

Yea I can't wait for Geneva to roll around..I need to see what it looks like..spy shots don't do it justice. Where did he add CF? I made this really nice interior shot of his car http://www.flickr.com/photos/a7xbass94/5184930305/

And I wonder how big the McLaren will make it in the US because there arent many places that sell them that I know of..And depends if Lotus has the performance to back up their new styling

McClaren outperforms Ferrari - with race car heritage!

I still think and it's been confirmed the Scud is the fastest Ferrari to date including the GTO and 458 around the track. The 458 added major lb.s which is ridiculous. The scud at 500 Hp and under 3,000 lb.s is impressive.

There is a Lotus testing at STL - I will find out when they are holding it at Spirit Airport.

All CF additions on the 458 are exterior

a7x, Nice interior 458 shot. Welcome guys to Ferrari Life.

As for McLaren. I think they will be a huge success, it will just take some time for them to build their dealer network out. They are hitting all the major metros: NY, SF, LA, CHI, Dallas can cover most of TX and Tampa dealer will do plenty of business in the south. Chicago dealer will probably be able to support St. Louis, transport for service is what will suck.

True..I am definitely eager to see one. I bet STL Motorsports would be willing to service McLaren since they service Lambo, Ferrari, Bugatti, etc.

Glad to be here - hopefully a few more midwesterners jump the fence.

Ryan is a huge asset and quite the photographer.

Agreed ... McClaren will push Ferrari hard to produce lighter faster competitive cars.

Ryan you should stop by 140 Long Rd. I have a tenant Details By Design in the building that details all of STL's cars and many other like high end cars. I have another tenant in the building that sells small scale die cast. Design n Motion that hosts car events on a weekly basis, the owner is also the MC for the European Car Show.
